Ford Focus Makes List of Best Cars for the Buck

11 Feb

Ford Focus STThese days we’re all looking to save a buck. But when it comes to buying a vehicle we don’t want to sacrifice quality just to keep our expenses down. So, Kiplinger’s has assembled a list of the 12 Best in Class Car Values. At the head of the list is the Ford Focus! Here’s how sums up the Focus’s attributes:

Cars under $20,000: Ford Focus

Sticker price: $16,995 (S, manual)

Invoice price: $16,064

TrueCar national average price: $16,672

Resale value: 3-year: 62%; 5-year: 45%

MPG: City: 26; Hwy: 36

Last year’s Best New Car Under $20,000 proves it can go the distance, nabbing Best in Class and Best Resale plaudits. Its peppy 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine puts out 160 horses, and six airbags come standard. With the base model you’ll pay an extra $1,095 for an automatic transmission and $295 for Ford’s SYNC system to operate media devices hands-free.”

So, save a buck AND score safety and fuel efficiency! We knew it was possible!
