What used Ford Focus estate will I get for my budget?
Early versions of the Focus estate start at a little over £13,000 for a Zetec model with either a 1.0 petrol or 1.5 diesel. Increase your budget to £14,000 to £16,000 and you'll have your pick of more generously equipped Titanium examples. The more powerful 1.5 petrol will set you back at least £17,000, while a 2.0 diesel closer to £18,000. Spend between £18,000 and £25,000 on later 2020 and 2021 cars, a little over £25,000 for a 2022 car.
Anyone looking for the hot ST model will need to find at least £23,000.
All Focus Estates of this generation will be registered after April 2017, so will pay annual car tax (VED) at the current flat rate. This is currently £165 a year. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.
Servicing and insurance
You can spread the cost of servicing your Focus with a service plan you pay for in instalments, or can look into a Ford Essentials servicing once your car is four years old. It includes an oil and filter change, pollen filter change and a wash and vac for £169. Insurance premiums are reasonable compared with its obvious rivals
