Three years or 36,000 miles. Point: The SVT Focus is a hatchback with a high-energy personality, crisp roadholding and a sticker price that wonÕt break your bank. It stops and corners with confidence, has leather-trimmed sports seats and understated styling. Counterpoint: The styling looks a little out of date compared to some of the newest models from abroad, and it has taken a while for Ford to get production of this special model up to speed.
