2017 Ford Focus: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Ford Focus, we’ve published an updated review: 2018 Ford Focus Review

Some might find it hard to believe, but the Ford Focus has been around for almost two decades now. That’s a long time to compete in this segment. Check out these five reasons the 2017 Ford Focus continues to impress.

Efficient Engines

Every Focus made with the exception of the 350 horsepower RS trim level returns at least 30 miles per gallon highway. There’s a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that returns close to 40 mpg hwy — very impressive. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder also has respectable mpg numbers, too.

Cabin Quality

When you step inside a Focus, you can see that Ford really sweat the details. It’s a very impressive cabin in general, but especially for a compact car. There is available alloy trim, and the SEL trim level has dual-zone climate control and even a sunroof to enjoy the weather. See the 2017 Ford Focus models for sale near you

Attractive Style

This class isn’t necessarily known to blow you away with styling. The Focus, however, is very sharp across the board. From the sporty, fun to drive ST to the base trim level. The Titanium trim level has heated side mirrors and stylish 17-inch alloys. All in all, there are a variety of very attractive trim levels, including all-electric and the high-performance ST and RS trim levels.


When you go for the higher trim levels, like the Titanium trim, you’ll get the SYNC 3 interface. This system is much quicker and more responsive. Parents will appreciate the piece of mind technology, like the standard Ford MyKey system, which can limit the speed for your teen driver, among other things.


The Focus comes with all sorts of cool premium features you might find on a luxury car lot. Features like available ambient interior lighting — even a very extensive wheel lineup with great choices. Ford even gave the Focus options like innovative safety and a self-parking system.

Autotrader Says

Keep in mind the Focus also starts at less than $17,000. So with a reasonable sticker, tons of features and impressive technology, it might be time to step out of the competition and into the 2017 Ford Focus.
