Performance

The base sedan model of the 2018 Ford Focus is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard for this trim, with a six-speed automatic option.

The SE model is available in sedan or hatchback. The hatchback uses the base 2.0-liter engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, while the sedan gets a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, with the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

The Focus electric is a hatchback model, with an electric motor that uses a single-speed automatic transmission and produces 143 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

With either gasoline variant, the Focus has smooth acceleration and a reliable transmission, but the Focus RS turbocharged variant gives it a boost for more fun and excitement. On curving, winding roads, the Focus is remarkably light on its feet and maintains its composure well. While it's not a sports car, the Focus offers plenty of enjoyment and confidence for the average driver.

The exceptional suspension and noise-reducing cabin make the 2018 Ford Focus a quiet, relaxed ride for long distances. The seating is supportive and well-padded, with soft materials and ample leg- and headroom throughout.

The trunk space is above average for its segment, at 13.2 cubic feet. The seats also fold completely flat for additional cargo, and there are many small pockets, bins and cubbies to store small items.
