Model Highlights

All Focus models come with a 2.0-liter 'Duratec' in-line four-cylinder engine. In most models, the engine makes 140 horsepower, but coupes with the manual transmission get a boost to 143 hp. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on both models and a four-speed automatic available. With the standard five-speed manual, the Focus has EPA highway fuel economy ratings of 35 mpg highway.

With the Focus's facelift last year it also received some significant improvements to ride and refinement, plus a vastly improved interior. All Focus coupes now get standard fog lamps, along with redesigned front and rear fascias, plus darkened chrome accents around the grille and headlamps. The attractive new interior is finished with a matte-metallic look, front seats are better than those in many other small cars, and back seat space is even adequate in two-door models though access is difficult.

The Focus ramps up its safety feature list for 2009, with electronic stability control available for the first time, as an option on all models. Front thorax side airbags and full-length side curtain bags are standard, but anti-lock brakes remain optional.

The Focus sedan comes in base S and SE, sporty SES and luxurious SEL trims, while the coupe comes only in SE and SES trims. SES coupe models get a sport-tuned exhaust and stiffer suspension tuning, and 17-inch wheels are available. The new SEL model brings a dressed-up appearance with 16-inch 'Euroflanged' wheels, chrome door handles, chromed heated mirrors, and heated leather seats.

The base S sedan is a relative bargain, and air conditioning, tilt steering, and a CD sound system are all standard. At the top of the range, the SEL can be optioned with a power moonroof, Audiophile sound system with subwoofer and remote start. Sync, a feature integrated with the sound system, allowing voice-activated hands-free calling, along with voice-activated control over portable music devices like iPods or PDAs, is standard on the Focus SEL and available on the other models.


Value Writeup

The slight changes Ford made to the coupe for 2009 further improve the appearance of the 2008 redesign. Good fuel economy ratings, combined with a low base price, make the Focus one of the most frugal commuter vehicles; and since its redesign last year, the Focus ranks as one of the most refined small cars inside, with a smooth ride and very little road noise. Sync, still a Ford exclusive, allows more hands-free control over phones and music devices than any other device available--well worth the option cost.


Pros

Fuel economy; interior comfort; comfortable & quiet ride; Sync hands-free entertainment system


Model News

The Focus, which was given a facelift for 2008, gets some further significant changes for 2009, with new front and rear fascias for the coupe. SES coupes get a new roof-line spoiler and standard 17-inch aluminum wheels. Performance is increased through the model line for coupes; models with manual transmission get a boost in power, while those with automatic transmission get a lower final-drive ratio.

Focus sedans come in a new top-of-the-line SEL model, with special alloy wheels and chrome trim, along with increased feature content, and the sporty SES sedan gains revised suspension tuning and larger 17-inch wheels.

Electronic stability control is newly available as an option throughout the Focus line for 2009.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
