As one of the nation’s most popular and versatile family hatchbacks, the Ford Focus never fails to disappoint when it comes to comfort, technology and performance. In fact, it is often among the class leaders in all aspects, with motorists fans of the sheer volume of attributes to be found in the model. This latest iteration - which comes in innovative Hybrid edition - continues to drive the popularity of the Focus to new highs. Discover the full range of features in the Focus by taking a test drive at Gates Ford in Essex, Hertfordshire and London today.
One attribute seldom commended is the Ford Focus’ length. In fact, the Ford Focus dimensions overall are among the most impressive in its class, with the model an athletic and sporty presence on UK roads, and featuring muscular proportions that ensure it feels safe and sturdy. Of course, the design is hugely stylish too, providing head turning good looks as standard. The honeycomb front grille, curved bonnet, and angled headlights are all complemented by sporty alloy wheels, and the range of finishes enables you to customise a model according to your own preferences.
When it comes to the Ford Focus interior, you’re almost certain to be impressed. The cabin has been tailored to offer exceptional levels of head and legroom for driver and passengers alike, while even the boot - which provides up to 575 litres of space - is cavernous and adaptable to your needs. Upholstery offers great comfort, and a careful dashboard arrangement provides access to only those controls that are of the most integral use. The Focus, therefore, has been crafted to embrace human-centric design to ensure that you are, both literally and figuratively, always in the driving seat.
The Ford Focus engine size and performance varies according to model, but it is the new Mild-Hybrid option that is certain to steal attention. Combining a 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine with a 48V belt-driven starter motor, this fuel-efficient model is able to cut CO2 emissions to an impressive 106g/km while achieving fuel economy of up to 60.1mpg. For those seeking more power, meanwhile, the 1.5 and 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines provide turbo-charged performance that really pack a punch.
Like so many models in the Ford new car lineup, the latest Focus comes packed with measures that enhance the driving experience significantly. For example, features such as Head Up Display present you with all the latest and most critical performance information without you having to take your eyes off the road. Ford SYNC 3 technology, meanwhile, enables you to connect to your smartphone - via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto - and access selected apps and manage communications. FordPass Connect even offers a WiFi hotspot for up to ten devices, thereby ensuring that all your passengers can connect separately.
The All-New Ford Focus ST is back in showrooms and offers the ultimate driving experience for those looking for performance and connectivity without compromise. Built from the ground up to deliver pure joy, it’s the most impressive iteration yet.
Following the family aesthetic, there’s no doubt this model is a Focus. The sharp styling takes cues from its Focus siblings, with slick touches elevating the design to reflect its superior performance.
It shares its angled headlights and curved bonnet with the other Focus models in the range but adds in a striking honeycomb grille and wider air intake, alongside exclusive ST badging. The rear spoiler increases its aerodynamic ability, while unique alloy wheels ensure it stands out.
The premium feel continues in the cabin, with ST badging adorning the RECARO Performance seats and a sports steering wheel that all but takes you straight to the track. Aluminium finish pedals enhance the racing feel, and the clean, uncluttered cockpit ensures every function you’ll need is right at your fingertips.
