Which Ford Hatchback is Best for You?

Buying a used Ford hatchback is a great way to get a well-built, practical, American car for a great price. Ford has made several hatchbacks over the years, but the latest ones are the Focus and the Fiesta. These cars are great fun to drive and are practical thanks to their hatchback design.

We start this lineup with the subcompact Fiesta. The Ford Fiesta may be the smallest vehicle in this lineup, but it is also one of the most fun to drive. In the base trim, the Fiesta makes 120 horsepower, which feels really peppy, especially when you get the 5-speed manual transmission. If you want more performance out of a pre-owned Ford Fiesta, you can always go for the ST version. The ST gives you 197 horsepower from a 1.6L engine. That is a lot of power for such a small vehicle. To better handle this hatchback’s performance, the Fiesta has independent MacPherson-strut suspension up front.

If you want a slightly larger vehicle than the Fiesta, you should check out its older brother, the Ford Focus. The Focus is a bit larger than the Fiesta and comes with a bit more luxury as well. In the top of the line Titanium trim, you get leather seats and a sunroof. If you really want to use your pre-owned Ford Focus to zip around town, then you need to go for the ST or even the RS. The ST gives you a better engine and a better suspension setup. The RS gives you a massive engine upgrade along with AWD and drift mode. The RS is quite useful for the weather we get. If you want a more green vehicle, there is a Ford Focus Electric. The Focus Electric is powered by a 107 kW motor that makes 143 horsepower. The Focus Electric also has a 33.5 kW hour battery, which gives it a range of 115 miles.
