What used Ford Focus estate will I get for my budget?
The Focus Estate hasn’t been out long, so there are few bargains to be had yet, but expect to spend around £18- 20,000 to pick up one with a nominal mileage and a full history, from a franchised dealer. This is still a reasonable saving on the list price or even any Target Prices you might expect to see, and should buy you a 1.0 Ecoboost car in any of the various power options. Expect to spend a little more on a diesel, or a more powerful 1.5 petrol, or a higher-spec trim.
How much does it cost to run a Ford Focus estate?
On paper the most economical Focus Estate according to the official WLTP figures is the 1.5 95 EcoBlue diesel-engined version, with a fuel consumption of 62.8mpg corresponding to a CO2 emissions figure of 96g/km. The 1.0 Ecoboost petrol records similar figures whichever state of tune you choose, with 48.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 108g/km.
All Focus Estates will be registered after April 2017, so will pay annual car tax (VED) at the flat rate, currently £145 a year. Insurance premiums are reasonable compared with its obvious rivals.
You can spread the cost of servicing your Focus with a service plan you pay for in instalments, or can look into a Ford Motorcraft service once your car is four years old. It includes an oil and filter change, pollen filter change and a wash and vac for £149.
