Review

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Trim: Style

Entry-level model gets some decent kit, including 16in alloy wheels, electric windows, driver’s side lumbar adjustment, air-con, a DAB radio, automatic emergency braking and lane assist. It only has a 4.2in infotainment screen, though, and we’d suggest bumping up to Zetec for a few more luxuries.

Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost 85

We have yet to try this 84bhp engine, but it’s likely to be pretty lethargic.
