Engine Options and Performance

The 2016 Ford Focus caters to a variety of driving preferences with its engine lineup. Whether you're interested in the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for everyday driving or the fuel-efficient 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, CarSmart Of Farmington has you covered. The 2.0-liter engine delivers a satisfying mix of power and efficiency, while the 1.0-liter EcoBoost excels in fuel economy, making it ideal for those traveling throughout Missouri.

When you drive the 2016 Ford Focus, you'll notice its nimble handling and agility, especially in city traffic or on winding roads. It's a great option for drivers in Farmington, Fredericktown, or Bonne Terre. The Focus provides a spirited driving experience without compromising comfort, thanks to its smooth suspension system that absorbs road imperfections. CarSmart Of Farmington recommends the Focus for its fun driving dynamics, whether you're commuting to Ste. Genevieve or taking a road trip.

Safety Features and Technologies

Safety is paramount, and the 2016 Ford Focus doesn't disappoint. This compact car is equipped with standard antilock brakes, stability and traction control, and multiple airbags to keep you and your passengers secure. Advanced safety technologies, such as the blind-spot warning system and lane-departure warning, add an extra layer of protection. The Focus's impressive performance in crash tests further demonstrates its commitment to safety. This makes it a great choice for families in Hillsboro, De Soto, and Festus.

The Ford Sync emergency crash notification feature ensures you're always prepared for unexpected situations. At CarSmart Of Farmington, we understand the importance of safety, especially when driving through areas like Park Hills or Festus. This technology gives you peace of mind no matter where you're headed.

CarSmart Pro Tip Of the Day

When shopping for a used car, there are a few features to look out for that can significantly enhance your driving experience. The first is the safety rating of the vehicle. A high safety rating ensures that you and your passengers are protected on the road. The 2016 Ford Focus, for example, boasts a solid safety rating with features like antilock brakes and multiple airbags.

Another feature that adds comfort, especially during colder months, is heated seats. If you live in a place where temperatures drop, having heated seats can make a big difference in your daily commute.

Let's not forget about the engine. A 2.0-liter, 4 Cylinder Engine is an excellent choice for those seeking a balance between performance and fuel efficiency. It offers a good amount of power without compromising on mileage.

Lastly, consider the appearance and durability of the car's wheels. Alloy wheels are not only stylish, but they are also generally more robust than steel wheels. They can improve the overall look of your vehicle and may even contribute to better handling.

These tips can help you make an informed decision when choosing your next car. If you’re in the market for a used vehicle, come to CarSmart Of Farmington. We offer a variety of pre-owned cars that meet these criteria, and we're ready to help you find your perfect match.

Interior Comfort and Tech Integration

Stepping inside the 2016 Ford Focus, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its upscale ambiance. CarSmart Of Farmington appreciates the high-quality materials used throughout the cabin, giving it a refined feel. The Sync 3 infotainment system, introduced in 2016, offers a modern and intuitive interface, making it easy to control your entertainment and navigation features. This feature is especially useful when traveling around Farmington and beyond.

Regarding comfort, the Focus's front seats provide ample support for long drives, making it a great option for commutes to Bonne Terre or De Soto. However, rear legroom might be a concern for families with older children or taller passengers, so it's something to keep in mind. The hatchback version offers generous cargo space, accommodating your luggage and other essentials, making it convenient for trips to Fredericktown or Ste. Genevieve.
