2014 Focus for Back-to-School

Kelley Blue Book has just released their top 10 picks for back-to-school cars this year, and our favorite 2014 Ford Focus made the list! Coming in at #2, KBB.com editors raved about the perfect combination of form and function with innovative technologies and top safety ratings that make this sedan a great back-to-school pick.

Analysts at Kelley Blue Book take into consideration a number of things when deciding what cars deserve “Best Back-to-School” recognition each year. Each of the ten winners this year earned high grades in vehicle style, passenger safety, fuel economy, versatility and value.

“Aiming to please aspiring overachievers of all disciplines, the Focus brings together an impressive mix of form and function in sedan or hatchback configurations,” KBB.com states. “From its sophisticated ‘kinetic design’ exterior styling and contemporary cabin treatment to a sprightly 160-hp engine, Euro-flavored suspension turning and top safety ratings, there’s a lot to recommend in this well-rounded and engaging package.”

2012 Ford Focus is Perfect for Students Heading Back to School

Kelley Blue Book has released its annual “Back to School Cars” selection, naming the top vehicles for students heading back to school. The list names 5 new cars and 5 used cars that are safe and inexpensive.  One of the five new cars to make the list for 2011 is the 2012 Ford Focus.

The experts at KBB.com use a wide variety of factors, including vehicle cost, fuel efficiency, versatility, safety, style, and how fun it is to drive when making the list.  According to the experts, “The 2012 Ford Focus is the kind of car young drivers love: It looks cool on the outside, modern on the inside, handles with more than a hint of sportiness, and offers advanced audio and information technology. Parents of young drivers will appreciate the cost-savings afforded by the Ford’s excellent fuel economy, along with the peace of mind offered by MyKey.”

The MyKey system was one of the Ford Focus’ big selling points.  This technology offers features such as Ford’s Belt-Minder system, which chimes and mutes the audio system until seat belts are buckled, a low fuel warning system that engages when the driving range is reduced to 75 miles, limits on the top speed of the car and volume of the audio system, and removing the ability to turn off certain safety features, such as traction control, park aid, and BLIS, the Blind Spot Information System.
