I went from a 1965 Ford Galaxie with a 390ci big block putting out almost 200 more horsepower and 200 more pound ft of torque than my Focus. Also weighed nearly 1000 pounds more and measured nearly four feet longer I'd wager too... But the Focus is a big winner in comparison thanks to MPG (averaging about 29/38 with a combined of around 34 as opposed to 7/9 and ageraging 8 before). And the Focus wins the overall comfort trophy. The Galaxie was sans tint and a/c and had vinyl seats(not fun in Texas summers) but did ride like a Cadillac (could go over speed bumps at like 40 without feeling it. Lol). So definitely a trade-off fest and by no means a trade up or trade down as a whole...
