2012 to Present: Ford Focus

The third-generation Ford Focus was introduced in 2012. Two body styles — a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback — are offered. A Ford Focus battery-electric model is sold separately.

The current-generation Focus is based on the model’s global platform and is marked by a gaping upper grille, sleek wrap around headlights, and a narrow lower grille opening. Distinct creases run from the front to the back of the hood.

A rising belt line, upper character lines, and lower body sculpting is present. Both body styles feature a sweeping roof line; the hatchback roof line ends with an available liftgate spoiler. From the rear, the Ford Focus has oversized combination lamps, reflector lights, and an available trunk-lid spoiler for the sedan.

Inside, the Focus offers room for up to five. Both body styles offer 90 cubic feet of passenger volume. The sedan’s trunk volume measures 13.2 cubic feet. The hatchback’s storage capacity is 23.3 cubic feet or 43.9 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded.

All Focuses come with power windows, air conditioning, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and an audio system. Bucket seats are up front and a 60-40 split-folding bench seat is in the rear.
