There is nothing mechanically different from the 2014 to the 2012.

If you want to read various threads about the 2012 + Focus (Mk3) go HERE.

If you want to look through various build threads, go HERE.

They really should make a fusion wagon hybrid. Then it would have a trunk.

My friend test drove the hybrid fusion and it literally couldn't fit anything in the trunk.

I was at my dealership today getting an oil change on my 13. I was walking the lot and saw the exact same 201A 2014 model I had. I was totally the same as far as exterior and interior. Everything else on the sticker looked the same other then 13/14.

There used car dept had A LOT of focus's in there

I was looking @ the '13 because of the rebates but for 2014 there was only a $315 increase in the base price & the rebates difference is only $500 less. So... for $815 more (and a wait of 5-weeks) we got a year newer car equipped the way WE want. Got a good trade-in price on our 2012 (w/44K) too.

I have a 2014. The only different thing I noticed from the 13 was the steering wheel controls. Instead of having a volume control on the right side of the steering wheel opposite if the cruise control, they have the volume control on the direction pad instead. So there is no more selection arrow button for your radio screen, you have to use the buttons on the dash to navigate the menu

What is on the control opposite the cruise control in the 2014?

Weird. My '13 has the volume controls on horn/airbag cover on the wheel.

Nothing, they merged the phone/ sync paddle info the right d pad on the 2014 models because the favorites buttons for MFT are gone for good.

The only other obvious changes are the return of the SE sport package.
