When the Ford Focus was introduced in 2000, it gave America a true competitor in the global compact car market. The Focus is in the sophomore year of its latest iteration, with a bold, fresh design, a modernized interior, improved, European-style driving dynamics and better fuel economy.
The Focus now offers both a sedan and a coupe. Standard equipment includes 15-inch wheels, 60/40 folding split rear seats, and 4-speaker AM/FM/CD player with input jack and speed sensitive volume.
The Focus is powered by 2.0-liter inline-4 that produces 140 horsepower, transferred to the front wheels via either a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.
Fuel economy for the Focus is 24 miles per gallon city and 35 miles per gallon highway.
Base MSRP for the 2009 Ford Focus is $14,995 with a well-equipped SEL model breaking $21,000. The Focus is backed by a 5-year, 60,000-mile power train warranty.
In its second year of its all-new look, with impressive gas mileage, and new choices in body styles, the 2009 Ford Focus is again a contender in the global compact car market.
