Interior

The seats are relatively high part of a long, tall interior thats designed to accommodate taller and older people despite the cars emphasis on the youth market. Large doorways make entry and exit easier. Big, clearly labeled controls are convenient to reach and easy to see.

A new symmetrical instrument panel greets the driver of a 2005 Focus, which offers four interior color themes and cloth or leather upholstery. The new ZX4 ST can be equipped with suede seating surfaces with leather trim. A storage drawer for six CDs sits near the drivers left knee.

Ford says the Focus is not only capable of comfortably seating five people, but its also roomier than key rivals. The backseat folds down to expand cargo capacity. Focus sedans have a 14-cubic-foot trunk, and the hatchback models promise 18 cubic feet of space when the seats are up and 40 cubic feet with the seats folded.
