2012 Ford Focus

Thanks to its economic and ergonomic design, as well as its excellent price tag, the 2012 Ford Focus is currently one of the world's best selling vehicle. Drivers in Chicago enjoy its ample cabin space, as well as its easily manageable size. Navigating busy Chicago traffic and parking becomes a breeze when piloting the Focus, a much appreciated advantage by those who find themselves working in a busy urban atmosphere with a relentless traffic flow.

When compared to other vehicles in its class, like the the Volkswagen Jetta, it's no surprise that the Focus is a favorite among drivers of compact vehicles. 


The Focus Deserves its Spot as a Class Leader

When comparing the base model Focus S and the Jetta SEL, it's easy to see why Ford's latest sedan is one of the hottest picks on our showroom floor. The secret to its success is that it offers exactly what drivers in search of a quality compact are looking for: an economically priced vehicle that can get them safely from point A to point B, while still offering some excellent comfort features.

  • Excellent Pricing- The Focus S is priced at $16,500 almost $5,600 less than the Jetta SEL, making it a superior deal when balancing price and what is offered in the vehicle package.
  • Incredible Features- Even at its price, the Focus S has many of the features offered by Jetta SEL. These include air conditioning, power accessories, a front power outlet, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player. The Focus includes features like battery run down protection that VW just doesn't offer.
  • Superior Fuel Economy- Due to its smaller, more economic engine size, the Focus S has an amazing fuel economy rating of 26/36mpg, compared to the 23/33mpg rating of the Jetta. Ford's engineers have equipped the Focus with the right engine for the job, balancing power with fuel economy to deliver a combination perfect for today's commuting driver.
