Focus Hatchback: Agility and Affordability in a Versatile Package

The Ford Focus hatchback comes with all the best qualities of the sedan, plus nearly double the cargo space. It’s fun to drive and boasts sporty good looks, all while being a solid candidate for carting the kids off to school or running errands. The Focus also earns respectable crash test ratings.

If you want to up the ante even further, you can opt for one of two Focus hot-hatch variants that are sure to impress. Both the ST and RS performance trims are only available in the hatchback configuration. The Focus ST, Ford’s second-hottest hatch, delivers improved performance and driving dynamics without breaking the bank. However, if you opt for Ford’s hottest hatch, the Focus RS, you’ll have to budget for more than $20,000 over the base Focus hatchback.
