2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Unconfirmed reports have stated people getting up to 39 miles per gallon highway with the 5 speed. This is very appealing to me as gas prices will rise again. see full Ford Focus review

The rated 27 mpg is on the money. I have gotten as high as 37 on the highway. Nice feeling to pass the gas station more often without having to buy gas. see full Ford Focus review
