Dropping a mention of American Idol in the introduction to the First Drive of the Ford Focus doesn't really offer any comfort for car enthusiasts. And if anyone actually remembers the awful "ads" the contestants took part in there might be fewer Focus sales. Luckily the review gets down to the nitty gritty especially with the ST trim. Edmunds finds the refreshed Focus an improvement over the aging design it replaces. I'm still missing the SVT but will be patient for the next generation.
