What Car? says

5 out of 5 stars

For The Focus is the best in its class to drive

Against It has a firm low-speed ride

Verdict The Focus pretty much has it all

Go for… 1.6 Ti-VCT (113bhp) Zetec Climate 5dr

Avoid… 1.4 Studio

Ford Focus Hatchback
  • 1. Stiff depreciation from new makes it a bargain used buy
  • 2. Owners have reported engine software glitches, so watch out for poor starting and misfires
  • 3. Interior is put together with a quality to rival the very best in the class
  • 4. There was a recall to fix the vehicle's fuel return pipe, which could degrade and cause fuel leakage, so check the work has been done
  • 5. The driving position is excellent, and everyone should be able to make themselves comfy
