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. Or call anyone in your contact list by just saying a name.

Most amazingly, it all actually works most of the time. That's more than a lot of luxury cars can say.
