2010 Ford Focus SES

2010 Ford Focus Review

(3 Stars)  Vanilla doesn't mean bad

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Focus has been a very popular sedan from Ford for many years. This compact sedan has a lot to offer and it is surprisingly affordable when compared to other comparable models from different manufacturers. The Ford Focus has been in production for about 10 years now and it has been refined to produce a very smooth performing package. The most recent updates did not really change the overall value or usability on the Focus. Mostly some new design on the body and mild changes to the interior of the Focus account for this year's updates.

The Ford Focus does not come with some of the high tech gadgetry that you can get as options in other sedans, but it does come readily equipped for safety including a 6 airbag system. You can utilize the Ford Sync system as an upgrade, but beyond that this vehicle is about smooth rides and comfort made affordably. The Sync holds four passengers rather comfortably and offers a 13.8 cubic foot trunk space which is rather reasonable considering the Focus' small form.
