The Ford Focus is a good compact car with good fuel economy, but it was simply outclassed.

An average of 33.3 mpg is commendable, but it's almost 7 mpg less than its closest competitor here, the ultra-small two-seat Smart ForTwo.

The Focus finished fourth in all three segments of Edmunds.com's driving test. It also finished fourth in total fuel costs for the trip.

NEXT: 3rd place: Smart ForTwo
