The ever-popular Ford Focus has been a motoring mainstay for nearly 20 years now having launched in 1998.
The Focus’ combination of rising window line and gently tapering roof line present it with an appealingly assertive stance. The car sports a nicely fashioned front-end too, with its smart-looking radiator grille and sleek, swept-back headlights.
This five-seat car handles very well and is a notably agile performer – it also offers a very comfortable ride, no matter how long the journey. The Focus’ gently cushioning seats are a most welcome feature, and the driver further benefits from an adjustable position and a tilt-and-telescopic multi-function steering wheel. The vehicle comes well-equipped too, with all models featuring air-conditioning, electric front and rear windows and DAB radio, for instance.
If ever the Focus’ 316-litre boot space isn’t quite enough, simply flip the 60/40 split-folding rear seats to reveal 1,215 litres of load capacity. If cargo volume is an absolute priority, why not consider opting for the estate variant, which offers 476 litres (seats up) and 1,516 litres (rear seats folded)? Either iteration possesses a conveniently wide boot opening which, in conjunction with a flat luggage bay floor, helps to make loading a simple process.
Many Focus models are specified with a 1.6-litre 85bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 47.9mpg and produces a 136g/km CO2 emission figure. Optimal fuel-efficiency is delivered by variants that are fitted with a 1.6-litre 103bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 83.1mpg and emissions as low as 88g/km.
The Ford Focus comes with a maximum five-star rating, as awarded by crash-test specialists Euro NCAP. All models are fitted with driver aids such as Lane-keeping System and Driver-drowsiness Monitor as standard. The former alerts you if ever the vehicle begins to drift out of lane, while the latter monitors your driving input, warning you if there's any significant deviation.
