5. 2013 Ford Focus ST
When you hear Ford Focus, the first words to cross your mind are more than likely not “awesome” or “exciting.” This is another vehicle, the ST model in particular, to hold your judgement on. This car has a surprisingly high powered 252 horsepower 2.0L Eco boost engine. This engine helps achieve the absolute best fuel economy of any car in its class. It comes equipped with high performance brakes and a sport tuned suspension which will help you jump into turns better. With an MSRP of $23,700, it’s affordable enough for anyone looking for a fantastic balance of performance and economy.
