"At the top of this month's list is a sporty compact sedan, the 2017 Ford Focus," said Allyson Harwood, associate editor for Kelley Blue Book. "Strongly influenced by Ford of Europe, Focus offers the kind of driving dynamics American drivers have long envied, and it's currently available at a price that makes it even more appealing. However, deals can be had on many popular 2018 models, and even one new 2019 model-year vehicle."
