2012 Ford Focus overall :
The Focus was popular and well-liked when it debuted in 2000, but over time the competition improved, and the Focus lost its appeal.
Now, eleven years later, Ford has completely redesigned the Focus in hopes that it will regain its reputation as a top choice among affordable small cars. With competition like the Chevrolet Cruze, Mazda3 and Honda Fit, Ford had to revamp the Focus from the inside out to distinguish it from other cars in the class. The interior was one of the first things to change, and now has more high tech options. “The company is loading the Focus with all manner of optional niceties,” says Edmunds, “such as keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, a semi-automatic parallel parking system and the new MyFord ‘driver connect’ technology which reconfigures information and entertainment operation with five-way touchpads on the steering-wheel spokes and, with high-end versions, adds an 8-inch touch screen display.”

How much: The sedan starts at $16,995, and the hatchback starts at $18,790
