Detailed Review

Developed on the outskirts of Detroit, the Ford Focus is a well-finished competent passenger car. The Ford Focus is a domestic name across the small families in the United States. The automaker has made various refinements in the journey of Focus. The 2018 Focus, however, doesn’t come with any changes for this year.

The Focus outclassed many prominent rivals that offer better passenger space and modern features. Still, it remains the easy car deserving to be recommended. It offers two body styles-hatch and sedan, offering great styling and appeal. The performance and sporty Focus trims are just like a cherry on the cake.

Overall Rating



The new 2018 Ford Focus is loaded with high-tech features similar to the rivals like Mazda3 and Kia Soul. Ford has offered four trim levels with both fuel-efficient and performance engine options. There are two high-performance turbocharged versions of the 2018 Focus- the Focus ST and the all-wheel-drive Focus RS. These performance versions compete with VW’s Golf GTI and Golf R and Honda’s Civic Si and Type R. There’s also an all-electric version on the chart that challenges Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt.
