Ford Focus

Ford's Focus small hatch is one of the world's most popular cars, thanks to strong sales in Europe and the United States.

It's been on sale in Australia since 2002, but hasn't really enjoyed the same run of success against established competitors like the Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla. The third generation car hit showrooms in 2011, but the brakes were applied hard when its 'Powershift' dual-clutch gearbox was exposed as a dud. The bright light in the current Focus small car range, priced from $23,390 for the Focus Trend, is the sporty $56,990 Focus RS LIMITED EDITION, which really is one of the performance buys of the decade.
