What is there to say about the Ford Focus that hasn’t already been said? It has been a best-seller for many years, and the latest generation is even better. It offers something for everyone in Hatchback and Estate.
The latest Focus is more refined and higher quality than those that have gone before, some may say it's lost some of the handling sparkle which characterised the original. It still offers the best blend of ride and handling in its class, though, and amongst most rivals it really is a winner.
The engines are great though, with a wide range of petrols and diesels and the majority offering refinement, low running costs and reasonable pace – the award winning Ecoboost Engines have taken the market by storm.
The most popular model sold at Thame Cars is the Ford Focus Zetec 1.0T EcoBoost (125), we find that the 100 is a little under powered.
In late 2014 the Focus was given a facelift, including the Jaguar look chrome grille, distinctly narrower headlights and a much improved, less cluttered interior. The touch screen displays have proved a huge hit and the Sat Nav and Sync Systems are the best in class by far. A new range of engines and some clever new technology were also introduced, while the all-too-basic Studio trim level was dropped from the range.
Those wanting more space have the option of the Focus Estate. Unusually, the estate version actually drives just as well as the hatch, while offering significantly greater practicality by solving one of the few problems the standard hatchback has – a relatively small boot.
The Ford Focus is available in a number of specifications: entry-level Style, sporty Zetec and Zetec S, and range-topping Titanium and Titanium X.
