When taking global auto sales into account, the Ford Focus is the best-selling car on the planet. It is sold all around the world with as few regional differences as possible, and last year Ford moved well over 1,000,000 examples of the car out of showrooms and into customer driveways. That’s not a typo. You’re counting the zeroes correctly. Talk about economies of scale.
Clearly, there is no reason for Ford to lose focus with its popular compact car, and for the 2015 model year, the Focus gets new styling, a revised interior, several safety and infotainment technology upgrades, and a more fuel-efficient engine choice. That should be enough to keep it competitive against key rivals such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Dodge Dart, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Mazda 3, Nissan Sentra, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Corolla, and Volkswagen Golf and Jetta.
