The Dodge Dart is technically European...a Fiat under the skin...but it's on its way out with no plans for a replacement, as is the Buick Verano. And that leaves the Focus.

The Ford Focus Titanium, for the base price of $23,275, comes remarkably well-equipped (see the list of features here). Our tester packed an additional $3,250 in options, including the Blue Candy tinted clearcoat paint ($395), 18-inch wheel package ($625), technology package including blind-spot warning and lane-keeping alert ($795), voice-activated navigation ($795), active park assist ($395) and exterior protection package ($245).
With $875 destination and delivery, the bottom line was $27,850. Not cheap. In fact, that money can buy you a decently-equipped car the next size class up...the Phoenix Bureau tested a Fusion last year that rang in at only 40 bucks more. But the days of buying cars by the pound are over. Sometimes big-ish money for a small car makes sense. And the Ford Focus Titanium, especially a loaded one like ours, is a great example of that.
