2008 Ford Focus Review

Stylish and smart the perfect combination that depicts the Ford Focus. Focus comes in two body styles: a sporty 2-door coupe and a 4-door sedan. Focus styling is bolder and more exciting than ever. And on the practical side of course both coupe and sedan have 60/40 rear fold-down seat backs for carrying long items that wouldn't fit in a conventional trunk. The 2.0L Duratec 20 I-4 is engineered with dual overhead cams activating four valves per cylinder. You can go a long way with its maximum EPA-estimated 35 Hwy rating. The Ford Focus is now available with SYNC an integrated voice-activated communication and media system. You can access your music collection by genre album artist or song title and operate your Bluetooth phone with simple voice commands. SYNC will even allow you to make music selections through your flash drive by voice command. When it comes to passive safety protection Ford Focus has you well covered. In addition to the dual-stage driver and front seat passenger airbags every Focus comes with standard front seat-mounted side airbags as well as 1st- and 2nd-row side curtain airbags. That's a total of six airbags to enhance protection in certain front or side impacts. The Ford Focus MPG’s meet MP3’s
