The Ford Focus official website has listings of all of the available trim options in detail for your perusal. Here is a summary of the differences.

 

Focus Sedans

Focus S sedan starts at just under $17,000 and is capable of an estimated EPA mpg of 25 city and 34 on the highway. The S model comes with a 2-liter I4-engine and a 5-speed manual transmission with the option to have a 6-speed PowerShift automatic instead. The only wheels available are 15” steel wheels with silver covers. Other features unique to this model are dual front vanity mirrors, power front windows, and powered black side mirrors.

Focus SE sedan begins at $18,000 and has mileage estimates of 30 mpg in city and 40 mpg on the highway. This model comes standard with a 1-liter EcoBoost engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, but you can select a 2-liter I4-engine and a 6-speed PowerShift automatic transmission or a SelectShift transmission for those that enjoy a semi-automatic option as well. This model allows for 16” aluminum, 16” dark-painted aluminum, and 17” dark-painted aluminum wheels. In this model you can also find optional heated front seats, Sirius XM radio availability, cruise control, illuminated vanity mirrors, message center with trip computer, 4.2” LCD display with voice recognition, optional black gloss grille, and optional rear spoiler.

Focus SEL sedan starts at around $21,000 with mpg values slightly higher than those of the Focus S. This model only features a 2-liter I4-engine with the 6-speed automatic SelectShift transmission. The SEL only comes equipped for 17” aluminum wheels with dark-painted pockets. The SEL has many similar options to the SE but also comes with a reverse sensor, dual zone temperature control, 8” LCD touchscreen with voice recognition, ambient lighting, and a power moon roof.

Focus Titanium sedan is priced at $23,500 with similar fuel consumption rates as the Focus SEL. As with the SEL, the Titanium trim only utilizes the 2-liter I4-engine and 6-speed SelectShift automatic. This is the only sedan package that comes exclusively with four-wheel disc brakes instead of front disc and rear drums. Titanium sedans only utilize 17” aluminum wheels. As opposed to other sedans only having cloth seats, this package includes leather front seats with a split folding bench in the back. The Titanium shares many features with the SEL but has even more, such as push-button start, leather shift knob, message center with trip computer, remote start system, and optional lane-keeping assistance and blind spot sensors.

 

Focus Hatches

Focus Hatches

The Focus SE hatch, as with all of the hatch options, has an EPA estimated fuel consumption of 26 mpg in city and approximately 38 mpg on the highway. Starting at just under $20,000, it features the 2-liter I4-engine with a 6-speed PowerShift automatic transmission. The SE comes standard with front disc and rear drum brakes but has an option to upgrade to discs for all four wheels and can fit 16” aluminum, 16” dark-painted aluminum, or 17” black-painted aluminum wheels. Unique features of the SE include manual climate control, 4.2” LCD display with voice recognition, message center with trip computer, optional black bezel headlamps, and dual-stage front airbags.

The Focus SEL hatch begins at $21,000 and uses the same engine but uses Ford’s 6-speed SelectShift transmission instead. The SEL only fits 17” black-painted aluminum wheels with front disc brakes and rear drum brakes. Comforts and details of the SEL are dual-zone temperature control, 8” touchscreen LCD, ambient lighting, a power moon roof, reverse sensing system, fog lamps with a gloss black bezel, and perimeter alarm.

The Focus Titanium hatch is priced at $24,000 with the same engine and transmission configuration as the SEL. This model only comes with disc brakes on all four 17” aluminum wheels. The Titanium package contains other features belonging with the SEL hatch with some additional perks such as heated leather seats, push-button start, rear armrests, leather-wrapped shift knob, message center with trip computer, remote start system, and optional lane-keeping system. Some of the external features are a black grille with chrome trim, chrome-trimmed headlamps, and chrome-trimmed fog lamps.
