Focus coupes come standard with fog lamps, along with aggressive front and rear fascias, plus darkened chrome accents around the grille and headlamps. The attractive interior is finished with a matte-metallic look, front seats are better than those in many other small cars, and back seat space is even adequate in 2-door models, though access can be difficult.
The Focus improves its safety feature list for 2010, with Advance Trac with electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes added to the long list of standards, which includes front thorax side airbags and full-length side curtain bags.
The Focus sedan comes in base S and SE, sporty SES and luxurious SEL trims, while the coupe comes only in SE and SES trims. SES coupe models get a sport-tuned exhaust and stiffer suspension tuning, and 17-inch wheels are available. The new SEL model brings a dressed-up appearance with 16-inch "Euroflanged" wheels, chrome door handles, chromed heated mirrors and heated leather seats.
The base S sedan is a relative bargain, with air conditioning, tilt steering and a CD sound system are all standard. At the top of the range, the SEL can be optioned with a power moonroof, Audiophile sound system with subwoofer and remote start. SYNC, a feature integrated with the sound system that allows voice-activated hands-free calling, along with voice-activated control over portable music devices like iPods or PDAs, is standard on the Focus SES and SEL and available on the other models.
