The Bottom Line A very rewarding car to drive, the 2013 Ford Focus ST will satisfy enthusiasts on weekend runs and the daily commute, but the cabin tech is a mixed bag, with the excellence of Sync offset by the navigation system interface. In features and driving character, the 2014 Mazda3 punches way above its humble economy-class roots, although a few bugs suggest the cabin tech needs refinement. The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo adds a healthy dose of straight-line performance to its techie, trendy formula. Although the 2012 Ford Focus has some quirks, it is a comfortable everyday kind of car that gets very good fuel economy and offers a full range of cabin tech. With its 1.6-liter engine, the 2014 Ford Fiesta makes for a mild-mannered urban runabout, but Sync and MyFord Touch add some compelling tech features.
