2017 Ford Focus Makes Zippy Performance Standard

In enthusiast circles, the 2017 Ford Focus is best known as two of the most fun-to-drive hot hatches around: the ST and RS. But their stellar handling and addicting acceleration are but the pinnacles of the same dynamism found in the more mainstream S, SE, SEL, and Titanium versions. If you’re looking for a compact sedan or hatch with driving fun, the Focus is more than worth a look.

Driving things forward is a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four making 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. 38 mpg highway is the rule of the road here. With this engine in hand, the Focus gets the ultimate in throttle response, cornering dynamics, and sporty feel. If you don’t mind sacrificing a smidge of that power for fuel economy, the SE’s three-cylinder gets 2 lb-ft more of torque and a 40 mpg highway rating.

To experience the performance greatness of the Focus, we recommend taking one for a spin. First, see if the rest of the car speaks to you! Contact our Ford dealership in San Diego, CA to learn more, and schedule your test drive.
