Why it's green: High mileage, estimated 40 mpg.

Why it's cool: European styling, electronic features.

The new Ford Focus was designed in Europe from the ground up to be distinctive, and to get better gas mileage than the car it replaces. It has energy-efficient electric power steering, a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, better aerodynamics and other features that contribute to what Ford calls "class-leading" gas mileage. Ford hasn't announced an mpg figure, but the Ford Focus will need to get around 40 mpg to lead its size class. Interior features include a new generation of the Ford Sync system from Microsoft. Sync, which may be optional on the cheapest models, allows voice-control for cell phones and devices like MP3 players.
