    2012 Ford Focus Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Ford Focus

    • The engineers and designers felt able to make the Focus sportier (by lowering its seating position and overall height) due to the upcoming C-Max'a tall-roof, five- or seven-seat derivative off this platform?that fulfills the family-car mission.

      - Car and Driver
    • A new body in white employs high-strength steel for 55 percent of the structure, the highest of any U.S. Ford.

      - Car and Driver
    • ...the Focus has undergone a clean-sheet recasting that brings a new look, enhanced quality, more features, and class-leading options to a slightly larger package that's far more compelling, both visually and dynamically.

    What reviewers liked least about the Ford Focus

    • Backseat is a little short on legroom...

      - Edmunds.com
    • It's technically a dual-clutch automated manual and behaves differently from a traditional automatic, occasionally rolling slightly back on hills or being reluctant to creep forward when parking. Some will file this as an annoying deal-breaker while others will consider it different but worth the fuel economy and acceleration benefits that come with it.

    Ford Focus Comparisons

    • Beyond squaring off against the new Chevrolet Cruze, the Ford Focus faces stiff competition in this ultra-competitive segment from perennial rivals like the Honda Civic--also due for its own mid-year remake--Mazda MAZDA3, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla as well as the newly redesigned and very well turned out Hyundai Elantra and its Kia Forte cousin.

      - Kelley Blue Book
