The Ford Focus, which continues to hold the prestigious title of best-selling car in the world, just added even more accolades to its collection. For 2014, all models of the Focus—both the sedan and the hatchback, plus the Focus Electric—earned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s highest honors, the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety. The Focus, which also earned the 5-Star rating last year, has thus established itself as one of the safest and smartest small cars on the market.
For the 2014 model year, the Focus takes advantage of Ford’s AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and anti-lock brake system, which comes standard on all models. AdvanceTrac technology keeps track of both the ever-changing road conditions and your reactions to those conditions to enhance your car’s reaction time and stability out there on the roads. The Focus also comes equipped with front and side air bags, specially designed to cushion drivers and passengers alike in the event of a crash.
When you add the Focus’s high safety rating to its sporty look, roomy interior, and its unbelievable gas mileage—up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway—it becomes hard to think of a reason not to consider the Focus as the frontrunner to be your next car. After all, it’s the world’s best-selling nameplate—everyone else is doing it! So swing by Cambridge Classic Ford today to check out the globe’s most popular car!
