The Ford Focus is one of the UK's most popular cars because it offers what most drivers are after in an all-round great package. From its best-in-class handling to the technology, the Focus is a great family car.
From the excellent hatchback and the roomy estate version, the Focus is great fun to drive and has a surprising level of refinement. For many drivers though, the Focus has the edge on its rivals for the amount of equipment and comfort levels.
Ford offers its popular family hatchback with a wide choice of diesel and petrol engines. Among them is the excellent 1.0 litre turbocharged EcoBoost unit which has three cylinders and should return around 66mpg. The engine itself is a smooth and responsive performer, particularly around town. The diesel engines for the Focus are also very good; the 1.5 litre unit has three power outputs with the most powerful being 118 bhp which returns 74mpg. It's also impressive and will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 10.5 seconds.
There are six trims to choose from and lots of standard equipment including tyre pressure monitoring, electronic stability control and DAB radio. Other models come with rear parking sensors, dual zone air con, active city stop and cruise control. There's also an 8 inch touchscreen available on higher level trims. There's a lot of safety equipment on board too including lane departure warning, front, side and curtain airbags and a driver tiredness monitor (the car will wake you up if it suspects the driver is dozing). However, Ford have ensured that the Focus is the best and most fun car to drive in its class, the chassis is excellent and the steering is responsive.
The Focus is well-equipped and the default car for generations of drivers - Ford strives to offer a package that is hard to beat family car and that makes the Focus a winner.
