Since its introduction in the late 90s, the Ford Focus has remained a customer favourite for almost two decades over – and last year’s model is no different. In fact, it ranked as one of the 10 best selling cars in Canada for 2016 for its supreme styling, swift performance, value and safety.
Here are five reasons you should consider test driving one at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C.:
High Tech Features
While the 2016 Focus may be small in size, it’s certainly big on high tech features. It comes equipped with Ford’s voice-activated infotainment system, known as SYNC, which easily allows you to safely control the music and make hands-free phone calls while driving. An enhanced SYNC 3 system is also available and features touchscreen and voice recognition for even more functionality.
Range of Trims
Offered in a 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback, the 2016 Ford Focus is available in a range of trims, including S, SE, Titanium, ST and RS. For used car shoppers looking for value, the S and SE trims can be purchased for under $20,000. But, if you are in the market for a high-performance compact, the RS can’t be beaten. Its turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine delivers a cool 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. That’s a lot of power for a compact hatchback!
Compared to other small compact cars on the market, the Ford Focus offers impressive value with many top-shelf features included in the purchase price, like keyless entry and 15-inch wheels at the base level. As you move up the trims, so do the options, like active park assist with hands-free parallel parking, dual-zone climate control and interior ambient lighting.
When it comes to the safety of you and your passengers, you can rest assured that the Focus has you covered. Standard safety features include a rearview camera and Ford's MyKey, which allows parents to set speed and music volume controls while their teens are behind the wheel. And, if that’s not enough, the 2016 Ford Focus also earned a 5-star overall government crash test rating.
Quality & Comfort
Unlike other econo-box vehicles, the Focus offers a comfortable cabin with high-quality materials and controls throughout. When you slip inside, the care and attention to the details is evident, especially in models equipped with a heated steering wheel, leather interior and heated front seats.
