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 X

Based on the ST-Line X but carrying the more off-road styling, the Active X adds features such as 18in alloy wheels, keyless entry, part-leather trim, heated front seats, a powered driver's seat and dual-zone climate control.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBlue 120

If you're a company car driver rather than a private buyer, this 118bhp diesel is the engine that make sense. Not only does it attract small tax bills, but there's a good spread of shove once you get past its momentary low-end lag.
