Review

The Ford Focus Estate stands out as the best-handling family wagon, complemented by a decent ride, generous passenger space and a large boot possessed of some handy design features. Just bear in mind that the interior feels distinctly low rent and the seating isn't as versatile as some of its rivals'.

Trim: Active

This is based on Zetec trim, but along with its raised ride height and rugged looks adds 17in alloy wheels, LED front fog lights, a black roof, privacy glass, keyless start and sat-nav.

Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost 125

This engine revs out smoothly but steadily, rather than with enthused gusto, and you often have to go up and down the gears in order to keep pace with the ebb and flow of traffic. As a result, we feel the the 1.5-litre petrol is worth the extra.
