2000 Ford Focus -- Designed from the inside out, the Focus couples a spacious interior with a snappy body.
Featuring high seating positions, a long wheelbase, and a high roofline, the Focus underwent comprehensive ergonomic studies to make it easy to use inside and out. Two 2.0-liter engine options provide 110 and 130-horsepower respectively, and a lightweight but sturdy chassis and independent suspension add to the peppy yet stable ride. The Focus was designed to accommodate the older generations, but it has also proven to appeal to the gen-Xers and under -- spanning an impressive demographic range.
