I was in the same situation as you, but with the mazda 3, subaru, and Focus. I chose exactly what you are looking for, 5 speed hatch.

I've got 588 miles on it in less than a week, not much of a test, but I put over 50k a year on a car in a slow year.

If you like the focus, I suggest you look online and find exactly the one you want at a dealer, then work a deal on that. Your not limited to what they have on the lot. I ended up finding one at a dealer I liked around 50 miles away. They trucked it down for me!

You work the deal that you want, they shouldn't be the one in control. Take your time, and be prepared to walk if you don't get what you want. The economy is in the tank, its a buyers market.
