The 2018 Ford Focus is irony on wheels: it comes in a dizzying range of models, of which the SEL and ST are our picks.

Sweet ST, schizo RS
High-economy 3-cylinder
Ride quality on non-performance models
Attractive sheet metal
Lots of high-end options

Cons
Convoluted dash
Tiny audio controls on base models
Lots of tire noise
Costs more than some good rivals
Light on safety tech

Pros
Agile and fun to drive
Two potent turbocharged engines available

Cons
Cramped rear seat

The 2018 Ford Focus is a well-rounded and competent small car. It's available in a variety of flavors, including a no-frills commuter machine, a high-performance hatchback and, yes, even as an EV..The Ford Focus is essentially unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Rides comfortably over bumps
Sporty steering and handling around turns
Interior stays quiet at highway speeds
Lots of upscale and high-tech options

CONS
Advanced driver safety aids available on top Titanium trim only
Underwhelming acceleration, particularly from the 1.0-liter engine.
Tight back seat for adults

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone
