2013 Ford Focus Electric Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
Though some test drivers are disappointed that the 2013 Focus Electric has significantly less cargo space than the gas-only version, reviewers are otherwise pleased with the Focus Electric’s cabin. They are impressed with its spacious interior and easy-to-use features. Reviewers don’t comment on the Focus Electric’s interior quality, but they think the gas-only Focus, which has a similar interior design, is well-made.
The 2013 Focus Electric seats five and has heated front seats standard. Leather-trimmed front bucket seats and a six-way power-adjustable driver seat are optional. Reviewers think the Focus Electric’s cabin is very spacious. One critic says that it’s easy for the driver to find a comfortable position, but no reviewers go into detail about head- and legroom in the front and rear seats.
- "The cabin is anything but cramped, there's great outward visibility, and a comfortable driving position is achieved before we pull away on our test drive." -- Automobile Magazine (2012)
- "The passenger compartment is roomy. …" -- The Detroit Free Press (2012)
The Ford Focus Electric comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a nine-speaker Sony stereo, Ford's voice-activated SYNC infotainment system, MyFord Touch, HD Radio, satellite radio and navigation. It also comes with MyKey, which allows parents to place limitations on their teen’s driving behaviors.
Only one reviewer comments on how simple the Focus Electric’s interior controls are. Aside from the MyFord Touch infotainment system, which he doesn’t like very much, he thinks that the interior features are very easy to use.
- "It is indeed hard to imagine how Ford could have made the Focus Electric easier, more intuitive or more user-friendly. Granted, we're still not in love with MyFord Touch and its associated interface, but for an electric car Ford showed some restraint. It's an excellent blend of technical sophistication combined with intuitive design." -- Edmunds (2012)
The 2013 Ford Focus Electric has 14.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. There’s 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. Reviewers have varying opinions of the Focus Electric’s cargo capacity. One says that the available room is adequate, but another thinks that the Focus Electric’s cargo space is too tiny, particularly for a hatchback.
