A new look, more refined handling and additional features make the Focus an even more appealing choice for drivers seeking a value-oriented American compact. However, it's the new SYNC system that really sets it apart from all of its competitors, particularly for those who use their cars as mobile offices or entertainment centers. Handling has always been a Focus strong suit, and the comprehensive revamp of its fully independent suspension, coupled with a stiffer body structure, adds even more poise and control in that department. Larger, lighter front disc and rear drum brakes improve stopping power, and all models also offer an available anti-lock system with traction control. Improved sound proofing and better overall isolation help cut cabin noise levels by eight percent, helped by a new acoustic windshield and thicker side glass. While not the quickest car in its class, the 2008 Focus does deliver decent gas mileage, which should please those who favor efficiency over exhilaration. Inside, the Focus gains functionality and boasts upgraded materials. The old "organic" dash contouring gives way to a more traditional---and more attractive---design, netting improved storage spaces, better-positioned controls and attractive ice-blue backlighting. Redesigned bucket seats provide more comfort and support up front, while the 60/40-split rear bench can handle two average-sized adults or three kids and adds utility to the 13.8 cubic-foot trunk. The Focus SE boasts a respectable basic roster of features, including new high-efficiency air conditioning, a tilt steering column, dual 12-volt powerpoints and front, front-side and side-curtain airbags. It also includes an AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system with auxiliary audio input, power windows/locks/mirrors, keyless remote, driver information center and unique alloy wheels (15-inch). This Focus offers 2.0-liter twin-cam Duratec 20 four-cylinder engine. In Federal form, an improved intake manifold and cooling system help bump output from 132 to 140 horsepower---whether it's paired with the standard five-speed manual transmission or optional four-speed automatic. The "California-spec" engine, mandated in five states, makes only 132 horsepower but qualifies for Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) status. 2.0-liter in-line 4 140 horsepower @ 6000 rpm 136 lb-ft of torque @ 4250 rpm EPA city/highway fuel economy: 24/33 (automatic)
