The Ford Focus is great to drive, full of technology and very refined.
The Focus isn’t a bad looking car and it’s also competitively priced compared to its closest rivals, starting from £15,995.
Out on the road, the Focus is fun to drive thanks to grippy handling and quick steering.
The boot isn’t tiny, but it’s smaller than its predecessor and the same applies to rear legroom.
Economy is a big selling feature of the Focus, especially the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel, which manages 83.1mpg.
As you’d expect from a family aimed hatchback, the Ford Focus achieved a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
The Focus comes as standard with sharply designed halogen headlights.
Alloy wheels are available, but not on either of the standard Style models.
The Focus is well designed and looks as modern as its closest rivals, although the chunky rear pillars can make parking slightly tricky.
Inside, the Focus has a well-built interior with an uncluttered dashboard, comfortable seats and a good amount of insulation from road noise.
