Ford Lynx (1999 - 2002)
We say:
Don't overlook the Ford Lynx just because it isn't a Focus. The first Lynx busted out of the box by providing some new wave of thinking in the compact car class. It looks decently proportioned, is well equipped and spacious for urban travel. That said, the ride is on the firm side and the seats lack support. Body structure said not to live up to the tortures of Manila city life.

Well equipped and affordable.
Lacks solidity, comfort.
