What Car? says...
While the idea of owning a different car for every occasion may sound appealing, most of us have to settle for just the one, due to pesky realities such as limited budgets and parking space. That’s why estates have always been a family favourite – whether for tackling motorway journeys, running the kids to school or visiting everyone’s favourite Swedish furniture store, you can count on an estate to do your bidding.
But the big question is: how does the Focus stack up against its similarly priced rivals, which include the Skoda Octavia Estate, Volkswagen Golf Estate and the one with the biggest boot of the lot, the Kia Ceed Sportswagon? That’s what we’ll be exploring in this review, plus we’ll help you digest the many options of engines and trims and let you know the configuration that makes the most sense.
And, once you’ve found the perfect set-up, head to our New Car Buying pages to see how much you could save for your next flat-pack furniture investment.
