The Ford Focus can justifiably be called a commuter car, but these days it can be somewhat difficult to pick it out from a crowd of Ford’s higher-end models like the Fusion or Taurus. This particular model has undergone a major redesign over the last couple of years, and the 2015 Focus appears to be the end result of the hard work of Ford’s design team. The new Focus is beautifully put together; accent lines on the hood and doors, aggressive headlamps, and a trapezoidal grille lend it a sleek, almost European look. So while the phrase “commuter car” does not always bring to mind elegance and comfort, climbing inside a 2015 Focus at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford in Garland, TX will certainly change your mind. However, we all know Dallas drivers are not taken in by looks alone, so next we’ll examine the Focus’ inner workings and show that it has just as much substance as it does style.
The Focus’ power plant is a prime example of top-tier Ford engineering. The standard 2.0L direct-injection four-cylinder engine is equipped with FlexFuel capability, which allows it to run on unleaded gasoline or E85 ethanol fuel. It clocks an estimated 27 MPG in town and 40 MPG on the highway when paired with the available 6-speed Powershift® automatic transmission. Available for the SE model, Ford’s award-winning 1.0L EcoBoost engine is even more impressive, boasting an estimated 29 MPG in town and 42 MPG on the highway. The efficiency of the 2015 Focus makes it a perfect choice for drivers commuting into Dallas from the suburbs, such as Allen or Plano.
The interior of the 2015 Focus is what truly sets it apart from other cars in its class. It looks just as good inside as it does outside, if not better. Available leather-trimmed seats and ambient lighting give the Focus a very classy, sophisticated feel, and the center console is simple without being too utilitarian. The radio and climate controls are intuitively arranged, and the addition of SYNC with MyFord Touch further enhances the tech-savvy, streamlined feel of this car.
Altogether, the 2015 Focus is a great-looking car that offers high-end look and feel without the high-end sticker price. Starting at $17,170 MSRP, the 2015 Focus is affordable on almost any budget.
