Interior

The Focus' seats are relatively high — part of a long, tall interior that's designed to accommodate taller and older people, despite Ford's emphasis on the youth market. Large doorways ease entry and exit. Big, clearly labeled controls are convenient to reach.

A symmetrical instrument panel greets the driver. The ZX4 ST has optional suede seating surfaces.

Ford says the Focus not only seats five comfortably, but it's also roomier than key rivals. The backseat folds down to expand cargo capacity. Focus sedans have a 14.8-cubic-foot trunk; hatchbacks promise 17.6 cubic feet of space when the seats are up and nearly 40 cubic feet with the seats folded.
