The Ford Focus comes with good equipment levels, cost-effective engine choices and delivers good handling. This appealing family hatchback is available in eight trim levels, from the entry-level Style to the top-of-the-line ST-3.
The smart-looking Focus features a number of eye-catching elements, including a chrome-finished upper grille on its front fascia. Body-coloured components include door handles and power-operated and heated door mirrors, the latter featuring integrated indicator lights. Ford’s Easy Fuel capless system ensures that you never incorrectly fill up the tank at the petrol station.
All five-door models sport a body-coloured rear spoiler, while estate variants are adorned with chrome-finished roof rails.
The five-person Focus provides front-row occupants with adjustable seating, and the driver further benefits from a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering column. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, electric front windows (with one-touch control on the driver’s side), remote-controlled central locking and air conditioning. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats, a 316-litre boot can be increased to as much as 1,262 litres.
A range of engines are available for the Focus, including a 1.0-litre 99bhp petrol unit. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, this delivers up to 61.4mpg and a 105g/km CO2 emissions figure. A 1.5-litre 94bhp diesel option, paired with six-speed manual transmission, is the most fuel-efficient option, returning as much as 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 98g/km. Both are available with a start/stop system, which automatically switches the engine off whenever it’s not needed, thus saving further on fuel.
A 4.2-inch colour display screen and a six-speaker sound system (including DAB radio, a stereo radio and a CD player) come as standard. A Ford SYNC infotainment system and USB and AUX connectivity are included too.
Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Emergency Brake Assist, Hill-start Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are included as standard. Awarded a five-star rating by Euro NCAP, the Focus features a number of passive safety features, such as seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX child-seat mounts and multiple airbags. The vehicle is secured with a Thatcham category one alarm.
