What Our Members Are Saying about the Materials And Workmanship of the 2018 Ford Focus

2018 Ford Focus Materials And Workmanship: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 4dr Hatch turbocharged 252hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Materials and construction are top-notch for the class, with black matte-finished plastics accented by the occasional brushed aluminum brightwork dominating the cabin. None of the touch points are uncomfortably hard and the whole car feels very 'of a piece'. Doors close with a very European 'thunk' and there are no squeaks and rattles, even on the worst roads. Seating materials on the ST1/base spec are very rugged-feeling, with a combination of tough-looking woven synthetics in a contrasting black and grey pattern. Admittedly, I only have about 1000 miles on the car so far, but as-delivered, it feels like a tank. full 2016 Ford Focus review
