If you haven't driven the 2015 Ford Focus yet, you might be shocked by how good it is. There are so many capable, compact sedans, and the Focus isn't even the newest of the bunch, but it's still at the top of its game. Here are five reasons why the Focus is a force to be reckoned with.

Frugal Yet Feisty Engine

The main engine in the Focus range is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, and it's one of the best at this level. Fuel economy is excellent -- up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway -- but the story doesn't end there. With a smooth-revving 160 horsepower, the 2.0-liter Focus has plenty of pep, which is rare in the 40-mpg club.

Tech-Forward Features

Into tech? You'll like the features in this Ford. Even the mass-market Focus SE comes with Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and you also get Ford's SYNC system for voice commands. Or step up to the MyFord Touch package for an 8-inch touchscreen -- not bad for a so-called economy car.

Sophisticated Ride and Handling

It used to be that Europeans got the cool Focus models and we were left with the dregs -- not any more. Now the U.S.-spec Focus has the same advanced suspension as its European cousin, and the result is arguably the best driving dynamics in this class. The Focus handles great with superb body control and responsive steering, but it also rides like a more expensive car.

Classy Looks

Who says an economy car has to look dull? With its sleek front end and muscular rear-wheel arches, the Focus looks more like a compact sport sedan. The interior impresses too, with a graceful dashboard and attractive, high-quality surfaces.

Value-Priced

Remarkably, the 2015 Ford Focus remains one of the more affordable cars in its segment. The base S model starts at less than $18,000, and even the fancy Titanium sedan doesn't top $25,000. That's pretty reasonable for such a great all-around ride.

Autotrader Says

The Ford Focus is one of those cars that does everything well, year after year. If you're shopping for a compact car, you need the Focus on your list.
