The 3rd generation of the Ford Focus has received a lot of attention from the parent company with continuing improvements in style and performance since their debut in 2011. Available in 4 door hatchback and sedan models, the Focus is currently ranked at 8.3 out of 10 by US News Ranking and Research and those are pretty high marks considering the level of global competition in the compact car arena. US News also gave the Focus an overall ranking of #13 in that arena.
One of main attractions for consumers interested in a compact car are affordability and economy and the Focus addresses both. The average MPG for the Ford Focus is between 26/27 mpg in the city and up to 40 mpg on the highway. As far as affordability, the Mike Duman Auto Superstore currently has 10 models available for under $12k.
If you’re searching for a compact car, then vehicle safety should also be a concern for you. The Focus boast a variety of standard safety features that include anti-lock brake systems, improved stability control, front and side curtain air bags and a driver side knee airbag. Additional safety features were also available like a rear view camera.
In government crash tests, the 2014 Focus earned an overall rating of five stars (out of a possible five), with four stars for total frontal-impact crash protection and five stars for total side-impact protection. – Edmunds.com
On 2015 models and up, the Ford's MyKey became standard equipment. This feature allows parents to set maximum speed and other settings for new drivers making the Ford Focus a great and safe first car.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find the Focus quieter thanks added sound deadening, stylish trim, USB ports, steering wheel controls, blue back lit instrument panels and other enhancements that add to its stylish appeal.
Speaking of stylish! Just because you want a compact car doesn’t mean you have to settle for a squared off boxy looking vehicle. The Ford Focus has been likened in style to the mid-sized Fusion. It has a sleek body design thanks to the raked windshield and subtle flared fenders. The Euro influenced taillights and grill give the Ford Focus an appealing aerodynamic look making it stand out from any angle.
