The 2013 Ford Focus comes in numerous body styles, trims, and engines, proving that the small car segment doesn’t have to be predictable. It is offered in both sedan and five-door hatchback, with several trims on each style. It can even be had in an all-electric version for maximum eco-friendliness.
The base sedan, the S, is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine. Inside, it has premium cloth bucket seats and a stereo system capable of integrating iPods and other audio jacks. The SE trim, which is also the base five-door model, adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, quad-beam halogen headlamps, and SYNC voice-activated infotainment center. For maximum luxury on a 2013 Ford Focus, the Titanium trim upgrades the stereo and wheels, and adds numerous convenience features like a push-button start.
New for this model year, there is a fun-to-drive performance trim: the 2013 Ford Focus ST. It runs on a high-output EcoBoost engine and shows off a front grille and foglamps unique to this specific vehicle.
Again, the Ford Focus has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick. It offers safety features and options not seen on many of its small car competitors. These include numerous airbags, electronic stability control, and advanced brakes. Its outward visibility is extremely good, due to small roof pillars.
2013 Ford Focus Electric
The electric version of the Ford Focus runs on a 92 kW electric motor combined with a 23kWh liquid-cooled lithium Ion battery. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Unique 17-inch painted aluminum wheels are just one more thing to set it apart on the roadways. Inside, it boasts eco-friendly, heated seats and a Sony stereo system.
