Flex Focus — Customized by FunkMaster Flex, rockin' amp, video, custom Katskin interior, external fascia and custom paint job. Gives an honest 34 MPG on highway, around 27 in town. Great steering, slow pickup but sufficient. Loads of fun! Sync system is intuitive and awesome!

Pros: gas mileage, fun factor, sync system

Cons: pickup is slow

1.8 Focus Zetec 3 Door — Looks like a ST and does 130 mph indicated at 5000 rpm Great handling Focus and Mazda 3 are the best front wheel drive handling cars I've driven especially at speed. Quality interior feel, sports suspension on 16 inch alloys and 205/ 60 tyres. Nice weight in the steering makes it feel like a smaller car.

Pros: pretty close to ST performance if not 0-60 time

Cons: Traction control ESP comes in a little too quickly

Awesome Compact Car! — I am very used to a much larger engine in a car so going down to a four cylinder made a big difference in acceleration for me. Other than that, the car was a very wise choice. The interior and exterior stying exceded my expectations. Gas mileage is great on highways and it fun to drive.

Pros: Small size, interior, exterior, smooth ride,  gas mileage, braking, and fun to drive

Cons: Acceleration

Pros: good, moderately powered car, nice started car for a project or learning to drive, good mpg

Cons: im power hungry

Ford Focus St (uk) — LOVE this car!!!! (and for the record its a UK Focus ST!) Performance is great. So much torque! ESP is great for controlling the wheelspin, but without it it's a great handling car. The engine sound is fantastic too. Build quality is very very good, feels solid and well made, compared with previous ford models which have felt tacky and poorly put together. Ford's designers get a thumbs up for what theyve done regarding the facelift on the old model ST. It looks a lot better and smoother. The interior is great. Well layed out, with a lot of nice touches. The dials and gauges in particular are very nicely designed. Average mpg is between 24.9 & 25.1 so far, which is not great, but quite good from a 2.5ltr turbo engine. This is mainly in town driving, with a little high speed action thrown in as n when. Overall, well designed, very solidly built, and feels solid and reliable. No faults/issues as yet. A definite improvement from the old Focus RS. Better built, better quality, better engine, better sound/performance, better handling in dry & wet on road, and more fun!

Pros: Fantastic fun, cheap servicing cost, good design inside & out, engine sound! performance, reliability

Cons: Not really an everyday use car, nice fuel bill, attracts attention from lunatic drivers!!
