2009 Ford Edge Video Review

Exterior Impression:

The first thing we noticed about our Sangria Red Metallic Ford Focus was its sporty fastback shape, oversized wing and rally inspired wheels. Then it hit us, this new coupe from 2009 looks a lot like the Group A racing sensation the Ford Sierra Cosworth from the 1980s, however unlike the rally car, there is no turbocharger under the hood of our Focus and our car sends power to the front wheels, but that fastback slope and rear spoiler made our Focus resemble the modern classic Ford. One aspect where our Focus outshines the Sierra are the attractive 17 inch O.Z. style alloy wheels. Overall the body could benefit from a few interesting lines or bulging curves to break up the wide open spaces.

The Ford design team has chosen a few bits of chrome to go on the headlamps taillights, fenders and grill; these touches highlight the rather plain looking Focus rather well. The original Focus was a hit, at least in Europe. The original Focus was a fresh new idea, filled with curved fenders that accentuated the rounded body style. Our 2009 Focus, despite wearing the large rear wing and having a hint of Group B nostalgia is pretty boring. The flat body panels look like they were designed to accommodate the stamping process than to please the human eye. If you want to imagine what can be done with this platform, look at the Mazda3. The Focus design team needs to put something in their coffee to get them coming up with new ways to make an economy car look good.

Interior Impression:

The nicest part of our Focus coupe is that it came with leather, not on the doors or the dash, but just covering the seats is fine by the Top Speed scrutineering board, especially when you consider the price. Although they were sitting on a rather large electronic platform that just felt a bit too elevated. The interior of the new Ford Focus is meant for the Play Station generation. From the second you put the keys in the ignition, the Atari like chime will make you think that you are at the controls of a classic video game, the bright neon gauges only add to the arcade sensation.

There was an abundant use of plastic on the interior, the artificial polymer made up the majority of what you could see, and everything that wasn’t leather was most likely plastic. However, the designers did come up with a nice treatment in front of the passenger, the large painted piece is a very nice touch especially with the FOCUS engraving, giving the person riding shotgun something to entertain themselves on exhausting road trips. The interior designers were able to fit a lot of technology into the center stack, especially with the Microsoft SYNC voice command system, but it would have been nice to have a better way to communicate with the radio, but hey it’s an economy car.

The feel of the steering wheel just wasn’t right, the unit looked alright, but there was something about the thin leather wrapped rim or the rather elevated controls that made the instrument cluster look busy and aesthetically got in the way of enjoying the drive. However, once again you must ask yourself, “so what?” this is a $20,000 car and you are sitting on leather, nothing can be that bad.

The Drive:

The compact Focus with its five speed manual transmission is as fun to drive as any econobox with a cutch, if it weren’t for the soft leather seats you could get into trouble daydreaming that you are Collin McRae on a tarmac stage of the Rally of Great Britain. Our Focus coupe was fun to drive and handled well, the low profile tires and rather firm suspension were very large contributing factors.

It is always nice to have a clutch pedal when driving a moderately powered four cylinder, the added control lets you take advantage of the motor by keeping it spinning in its sweet spot. Very often a nimble chassis like the one in the Ford Focus is spoiled by an economic slush box that ruin whatever fun could have been had, thankfully that was not the case with our Focus coupe which had a good old five speed connected to a DOHC 2.0 Liter 16 valve four cylinder that cranks out 143 HP, once again, not bad for twenty large. Another reason to get the manual is that the automatic is down by 3 HP.

Why to Buy:

The number one reason that you should buy the Ford Focus is that you will be buying American and if you had bought this Focus, Ford wouldn’t have shut down their Wayne assembly plant where these cars are put together. At a time when, despite engrained misconceptions, the American automotive industry is putting out some of their best products ever, you can’t deny how good this Focus is for $20,000.

The Coupe is the car to buy if you want to portray a sportier image with you hard earned cash, the car offers a reasonably stylish exterior, with a well accommodated interior and leather seating for a reasonable amount of money.

Why not to Buy:

If you can afford to step up to something like a Mazda3, then do it. The Japanese variant shows off what a designer can do when they try. Honestly, by comparison, the Focus looks like we here in the U.S. just got lazy.

Toyota has always done well with dressing up their compact cars with touches like subtle wings and color matched body trim; the Corolla would be a perfect comparison when shopping for a stylish economy car, just like the Nissan Sentra would, despite it’s CVT.

The only other reason not to buy this car is because it is not a Ford Focus RS, although we dream of having this rally inspired hot hatch in the States, the 300 HP RS is destined for Euro-only roads.

Top Speed Final Verdict:

Our Sangria Red Metallic Ford Focus coupe was a good car, it still needs some work to be great, but leather for $20,000 is an excellent start. The rims are rather stylish and the wing could be secured by something more stable than double sided tape.

We’d like to see a version with increased displacement or one of those upcoming four cylinder ECO boost engines to make an outstanding automobile.

MotorWeek Road Test: 2009 Ford Focus

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Introduction

Ford’s small car, the Focus, underwent a comprehensive face lift for 2008, but underneath the new clothes resides the same Focus platform that debuted way back in 2000. At that time, the Focus was at or near the top of its class and even won several of our 10Best awards. But today, the platform feels a bit less refined than the newer competition. The freshening went a long way toward updating the Focus’s styling, but much of the competition offers a superior driving experience.

The redesign killed the hatchback and wagon versions of the Focus, leaving only a four-door sedan and a newly introduced two-door coupe. Both versions ride on the same 102.9-inch wheelbase and have nearly the same interior volume. Only one engine is available, a Mazda-designed 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 132, 140, or 143 horsepower depending on emissions tuning and model. Coupled with a five-speed manual transmission, the 2.0-liter returns EPA fuel economy of 24 mpg city and 35 highway on regular unleaded. Power is adequate, and the engine rarely calls any negative attention to itself.

Inside, the Focus can feel a bit narrower than some of the competition. The new instrument panel is handsome and well laid out, but the optional ambient lighting system is a gimmick; it can change the color of the footwell and cup-holder lights. Sync, Ford’s voice-command system that can integrate one’s phone and iPod, isn’t a gimmick, though, and is fairly easy to use.

Completely retuned for 2008, the Focus’s fully independent suspension seems to have become a bit softer and more compliant. The Focus soaks up bad roads easily, but some of the sharpness that made the previous Focus a C/D favorite has been lost. Those seeking luxury in their small cars will approve; those who equate small with fun will be disappointed. Stability control and anti-lock brakes are optional on all trim levels.

For 2009, the Focus offers four trim levels (S, SE, SES, and SEL); coupes are available only in SE or SES trim.

Major competitors to the Focus include the Chevrolet Cobalt, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Spectra, Mazda 3, Nissan Sentra, Subaru Impreza, Suzuki SX4, Toyota Corolla, Scion xD, and Volkswagen Jetta.

Verdict

The Focus’s platform may be old, but the Focus makes up for it by offering a low starting price and a soft ride that might just appeal to some small-car customers, that is, if those customers can swallow the somewhat tacky styling.

What’s New for 2009

For 2009, the Focus coupe undergoes a few minor cosmetic modifications, including ditching the heinous chrome fender vents, and the five-speed manual version of the two-door gets three extra horsepower. The SEL trim is new and offers a bit more luxury for folks downsizing to a more-fuel-efficient car. Stability control is now an option across the lineup.

Highlights and Recommendations

At the bottom of the Focus hierarchy is the S trim level, which is only available as a sedan and comes equipped with a full cadre of airbags. Of the few options offered, three worth considering would be the anti-lock-brake and stability-control package, Sirius satellite radio, and—for those who only want two pedals—an automatic transmission.

One needs to step up to the SE to get the Sync voice-command system. One option best left unticked is the ambient interior lighting, which allows the driver to select the color of footwell and cup-holder lighting—this option would be tacky in a limousine. Next is the SES model, which has options—and recommendations—similar to those of the SE trim level. The SEL is the top model and available in sedan form only. The SEL includes chrome door handles and mirrors, Sync, and leather-trimmed heated seats as standard. When offered as an option, the leather-trimmed seats aren’t that expensive, but there are vinyl interiors that look better than the Focus’s leather.

Even though Focus sales have been buoyed by high gas prices, Ford still offers tempting incentives and rebates on its small car.

Safety

Dual front airbags, front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags, curtain airbags, front-seatbelt pretensioners, and tire-pressure monitoring are standard across the Focus lineup. Anti-lock brakes and stability control are bundled together in an option package that is available on all trim levels.
