Review

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Trim: Zetec

Builds on entry-level Style trim with front foglights, a heated windscreen, a front centre armrest, a leather steering wheel and gearknob, cruise control and an 8.0in colour touchscreen infotainment system. This includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBlue 95

Diesels will still be popular with fleet buyers and the Focus’s range starts with this 94bhp unit. We have yet to try it, but we will update you once we have.
