Assembled in Wayne, Michigan, the new 2017 Ford Focus successfully competes against a long list of high-value compact sedans and hatchbacks including the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, Mazda3, Hyundai Elantra, Subaru Impreza, VW Golf and Nissan Sentra.
Now in its third-generation, the sporty Ford Focus is perpetually one of the best-selling cars in its class. It’s available in a wide variety of configurations, including the all-electric Focus Electric and two high-performance hot hatch models, and it has proven popular because it’s fun to drive, offers exceptional style and an upscale interior.
For this road test and review, we spent five days driving a 2017 Ford Focus SEL around Los Angeles. The value-packed SEL trim level is new for 2017 and equipped the hatchback with such luxuries as a standard power sunroof, 17-inch wheels, and dual-zone climate control.
