Ford Focus ST (with 201A equipment group)

  • Price: $26,020
  • Gas mileage: 23 mpg city/32 mpg highway

If you were blindfolded until you got behind the wheel, you might think you were in a sports car rather than the Focus ST. Its smaller dimensions help sell the sports-car idea, but really its performance, agility and cockpit-like cabin seal the deal.

Its 154-horsepower, 2-liter EcoBoost engine is fairly impressive for such a small car, but it's the 270 pounds-feet of torque (the grunt turning the wheels) that pins you back in the seat. A slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission changes the cogs.

The regular ST comes nicely equipped, but Bankrate added the 201A option package to get the Recaro sport seats, leather seat trim, 10-speaker Sony audio system and MyFord Touch interface with 8-inch touch screen.
