Awards

The Ford has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2016 Focus has earned a coveted 5-star Overall Safety rating from the NHTSA1.
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

No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2016 Ford Focus3, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2016 Mazda Mazda34, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.
