Interior

The seats are relatively high - part of a long, tall interior that’s designed to accommodate taller and older people, despite the car’s emphasis on a youth-oriented crowd. The large doorways make entry and exit easier. Big, clearly labeled controls are convenient to reach and easy to see.

Ford claims that the Focus is not only capable of comfortably seating five people, but it is 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 19 cubic feet of space when the seats are up and 28 cubic feet with the seats down. The wagon offers a maximum cargo capacity of 73 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.

A silver-colored instrument cluster and color-keyed trim go on premium models. A CD/MP3 player is standard in upper-end models.
