Awards

Why did KBB.com name the 2016 Ford Focus ST the Best Sporty Compact Car in its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards? Because it offers "good times without the financial guilt," and it's "an exciting car without breaking the bank." We couldn't agree more2.

Features

Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
