It may not be the first car that springs to mind when someone says "cool," but Kelley Blue Book chose the Focus because of a very cool option.

Included in upper level models, or for about $400 more on a base model, Ford's Sync system turns your economy car into a technology wonderland. Play music off a simple USB memory stick just by saying what artist or album you want. Listen to music stored on your cell phone while it's still in your pocket.
