It can be hard to prioritize what’s most important to you when investing in a new car. Do you go for great fuel-economy or excellent driving manners? Choose a used 2014 Ford Focus and you’ll end up with both.
This compact superstar runs on a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, which produces an energetic 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed PowerShift automatic dual-clutch transmission delivers a knockout performance, changing gears imperceptibly, even if you’re pushing the Focus to the limits.
Whether you have a long commute during the workweek or prefer to spend your offtime taking lengthy road trips, this hatchback is eager to please. You can expect a fuel economy of 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. With a 12.4 gallon tank, you can drive across the entire width of Washington without stopping for gas.
According to The Car Connection, the Ford Focus is athletic and nimble, wherever you’re driving. Electric power steering is evenly weighted and responsive, so you can weave through a congested traffic jam ease or into a precarious parking spot with aplomb.
