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: ST-Line

If you like something a little sportier, this is the trim to go for. It comes with everything that Zetec has, plus 17in alloy wheels, sports suspension, LED front foglights, chromed exhaust tailpipes, alloy pedals, more aggressive bodystyling and keyless go.

Engine: 2.0 EcoBlue

We have yet to drive it, but it should feel punchy with 148bhp and a good spread of shove, but it’s quite pricey for business users.
