2009 Ford Focus Review

When it was new, car reviewers liked the tech features and performance of the 2009 Ford Focus. As a used car, the 2009 Focus offers all that and above-average safety scores.   

Pros & Cons

  • Good fuel economy
  • High-tech available infotainment system
  • Plenty of trunk space
  • Above-average safety score
  • Engine may not be powerful enough for some shoppers
  • Uncomfortable back seat

2009 Ford Focus Overview

The 2009 Ford Focus was a middle-of-the-pack car when it was new, though it ranks a bit higher as a used car. Reviewers who tested the 2009 Focus when it was new weren’t fond of its exterior, but they did say its performance was acceptable. The Focus has safety ratings that are above the class average.

With standard interior features like air conditioning and a four-speaker stereo that has a CD player and an auxiliary input jack, the Focus’ interior features are good for the class. Available tech features like Ford Sync, which is a voice-activated infotainment system that includes Bluetooth, really make it stand out. The front seats have good head- and legroom, but reviewers complained that the rear row doesn’t have enough legroom. Both the Focus sedan and coupe have plenty of trunk space.

Other Cars to Consider

Like the Focus, the 2009 Hyundai Elantra has a large trunk, but reviewers said its back seat has plenty of space, unlike the back seat in the Focus. The Elantra doesn’t offer an infotainment system like Ford Sync, but test drivers thought the cabin was well-made. 

The 2009 Toyota Corolla has strong safety scores, and reviewers said the Corolla is spacious enough for four adults. You won’t get tech features like Ford Sync, but the Corolla has more standard safety features and a more powerful base engine.
