Introduction

What Car? says...

If you fit a bigger display to a smartphone, buyers will queue round the block to get one – and it seems the same trick is being used on the Ford Focus Estate. The latest version does everything the previous car did, but now you get an eyeball-pleasing 13.2in screen.

Of course, big infotainment screens are not necessarily the main reason people choose to buy an estate car. That's likely to be the bigger load area they offer for carrying stuff around (your new widescreen TV, for example).

So how does the Ford Focus Estate stack up against similarly priced rivals, including the Seat Leon EstateSkoda Octavia Estate and Volkswagen Golf Estate?

That’s what we’ll be exploring over the next few pages of this review, where we'll rate its performance, handling, running costs, practicality and more. We’ll also help you digest the engine and trim options, and tell you which combination of the two makes the most sense.

Once you’ve found the ideal car for you, make sure you get it for the best price by searching our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a good place to find the best new estate car deals.
