The keyless entry system on the 2013 Ford Focus ST is especially smart, allowing you to open both the front and rear doors with the key still in your pocket.

    fancy feature for a very expensive econocar. almost makes sense if you consider i have that feature on the S550.

    One of my favorite features/discoveries on the car. Also, like the fact that you don't have to push a button to lock it, just touch the pad. Sounds silly to complain about having to push a button, but some how this is sooooo much easier.

    Why can't they get rid of that stupid button for the front doors too? It's so much nicer to unlock and lock doors just by touching the door handle.

    @ huybui,

    This is not a fancy feature anymore, considering it is 2013. It was somewhat fancy back in 2008. Maybe 2009. Even then it was an option on several inexpensive brands.

    That button is for locking the doors, so why would you want to get rid of it?

    Does the Focus have the invisible numerical touchpad in the b-pillar area of the front door? That's a great feature too, especially if you want to hide your key in the car while you run on the local trails. Just lock the door, then use your personal code to unlock them when you get back.

    When I owned my Chevy, I always got a bit envious at my Ford buddy because he didn't have to figure out where to put his keys while we worked out, or worry about losing them from a pocket (military PT gear doesn't have the best room for carrying things with you).
