2003 Ford Focus SVT

The 2003 Ford Focus SVT has a 170-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. The car zips quickly around larger vehicles on the highway, and when driving one, you may find yourself smiling a bit. Few cars cost as little while delivering as much enjoyment.

The SVT also lends itself well to performance tuning for those more inclined to get under the hood.
