ford focus 2010 best cars

The 2010 Ford Focus lineup gains some newly standard safety features but is otherwise largely unchanged. Focus comes as a 4-door sedan in S, SE, SES, and SEL trim levels. A 2-door coupe is available as the SE and SES.

The only engine is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that produces 140 horsepower in sedans and 143 horsepower in coupes. Both body styles offer a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.

Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, and front-side airbags. Previously optional, the ABS, traction control, and antiskid system are now standard on all 2010 Focus models. Also available is Ford's Sync. Sync provides voice control of certain cell phone and MP3 player functions. Sync is standard on SES and SEL and available on SE. Other available features include leather upholstery, heated front seats, and remote engine start.

Consumer Guide Automotive places each vehicle into one of 18 classes based on size, price, and market position. Compact Cars comprise popularly priced sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons with wheelbases 99.4 inches or longer.
