ProsConsWhat's New

Excellent ride quality, even on bad roads.

Back row isn't particularly adult friendly.

The 2018 Ford Focus remains unchanged for the year.

Its sporty handling and steering make it glide smoothly around tight corners.

Lacks emergency automatic braking in its feature list.

Pleasantly hushed ride quality on the highway.

The 2018 Ford Focus hatchback makes for an excellent contender in the compact hatchback class. With 3 trims on offer, the Ford Focus hatchback has a base MSRP of $20,540, with prices going all the way up to MSRP of $24,470, competing directly with the Mazda 3 Hatchback, the Honda Civic Hatchback, and the Volkswagen Golf.

Only a 2.0L Inline 4 engine is offered, mated to a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Together, they produce 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 8.3 seconds, the Focus hatchback maintains a combined fuel economy of 28 MPG. Ford offers the Focus hatchback in 9 stunning colors, with the Hot Pepper Red being a particular favorite of ours.
