The automotive data collector, R.L. Polk, reports that Ford Motor sold more than 1.02 million Ford Focus vehicles in 2012 making it the bestselling car. The famous Toyota Corolla came in second recording 872,774 vehicles sold in 2012 and contests the method used by the research firm and stating that they sold more than 1.6 vehicles. Other top sellers include Ford F-series pickup, Wuling Zhiguang minivan and the Toyota Camry. This is the first time that Ford had a bestseller. Ford Focus is more popular in China which has become the world’s fastest growing car market. Ford Focus sales in China grew more than 51 percent last year.
The Ford Focus 2013 is top of most reviews due to its fuel economy and cargo space. It comes with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The base model with automatic transmission delivers 27/38 mpg city/highway. More fuel economy models are doing even better delivering 28/40 mpg city/highway. It provides a quieter smooth highway ride with good handling. But the interior technical and turning radius of the car have been disappointing some customers. Many find Ford Sync and MyFord Touch difficult to use. But the Interior contains quality materials with front seats being more comfortable.
