Redesigned for 2012, the Ford Focus is available in sedan or hatchback styles, both seating five.

The Focus Electric, with an electric motor that is charged by plugging it in, has limited availability in 2012 as the automaker adds Ford electric-vehicle-certified dealers.

There is a long list of options including dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, leather seating, push-button start and voice-activated navigation.
