The Focus in snow, as long as you know what to do with it, is a great car. Yes, the TC can be somewhat too "intrusive", but just let go of the gas pedal and let the DCT do its job and you'll be good. We had today some 15 cm of snow and we'll be getting up to 30-35 cm and the car was great on the way to office (some 25 km -city and highway). I have 17" winter tires and I cannot be happier with the way it handles snow. Even better than my ex Mercury Cougar (MT transmission).
