2018 Ford Focus Review

The 2018 Ford Focus is a sharp compact car with sporty handling, a range of engine options and a long list of innovative technology and convenience features to enhance the driving experience.

Drivers in Lewistown, State College, Bellefonte and Port Matilda can find out more about the 2018 Ford Focus with our comprehensive model review.


The Focus offers an array of engine options across its lineup. The base model comes with a competent three-cylinder for maximum efficiency, though a 2.0-liter four-cylinder is a great choice for driving around town. There’s also a battery-electric engine, as well as two high-performance options, a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a 350-horsepower turbocharged 2.3-liter engine. Depending on the model, the Focus is mated to a five-speed manual, a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.

No matter which engine you choose, the Focus offers a smooth, comfortable drive. Coupled with precise steering and plenty of agility, this car is an ideal choice for the daily commute. Opt for the high-performance options, however, and you can enjoy exciting, energetic acceleration and sharp handling for a truly exhilarating ride.

Comfort and Space

The Focus seats five people in plush, comfortable seating. There’s plenty of head- and legroom in the front seats, and the rear seat allows adults to relax and stretch out for all-day comfort. Upgrades like leather upholstery, power-adjustability, a rear-seat armrest and heated seating elevate the interior comfort even further, along with the beautifully designed cabin and soft-touch surfaces.

The cargo space varies with the Focus body style and trim level, but all Focus models have enough space for your luggage and bags. The hatchback model offers 23.3 cubic feet behind the seats, which drops to 14.2 with the Focus Electric model. The sedan can accommodate 13.2 cubic feet in its wide trunk.


The Focus is well-equipped throughout its trim levels. The base model comes with a Sync infotainment system with a 4.2-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports and voice commands. Upgrades include an 8-inch touchscreen Sync 3 infotainment system, a 10-speaker Sony premium audio system, satellite radio, HD radio and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.

Upgrade to the Sync 3 infotainment system, and you’ll have one of the best on the market. It features a logical interface, a crisp touchscreen, turn-by-turn navigation and compatibility with many third-party apps. It can also pair with FordPass, which allows you to access your vehicle remotely, and Amazon’s Alexa, which gives you control over your Smart Home devices, as well as access to music, news, traffic, weather and your Amazon shopping list.
