The Ford Focus stands out as one of the best driver’s cars in the class ¬– its handling truly entertains if you go for our favourite ST-Line Edition trim. The sharp dynamics is complemented by its decent ride, quiet cruising manners and lots of passenger space. The iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance are the main areas that mark it down.get the best price

ST-Line Edition is our favourite, mainly for how it drives with the sportier suspension, but also because you get 17in alloy wheels, LED front foglights, keyless start and entry, auto wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and privacy glass. It also includes more aggressive styling inside and out.

The 1.0 Ecoboost 125 now comes with mild hybrid technology to improve both performance and efficiency. We're yet to try it in the Focus, but our experience with it in the Ford Puma was very positive, so we'd be surprised if it isn't the pick of the Focus range, too.
