The Focus has been lauded for its sophisticated handling and fun-to-drive characteristics. A 2.0L I-4 Duratec engine and 5-speed manual are standard on the Focus sedan. An optional 4-speed automatic is available. This 4-door sedan is an excellent value in a compact package. Optional leather seats are an unusual luxury option. ABS, and side impact airbags are available safety features. A CD/MP3 audio system is standard.

What Changed:

The new 4-door sedan is part of this extensively refreshed Focus lineup. Although the US Focus has not adopted the European Focus platform, Ford has chosen to completely restyle its compact car to make it more competitive. Only the 2.0L Duratec engine offered, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. The interior has also been redesigned for a more contemporary (or flashy) appearance.
