The Ford Focus stands out as one of the best driver’s cars in the class, with truly entertaining handling if you go for our favourite ST-Line Edition trim. Its sharp dynamics are complemented by the 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.

If you regularly carry lots of people or simply want something quicker than the Ecoboost 125, there's this 153bhp 1.0 Ecoboost Hybrid 155 and, with 0-62mph in 9.2sec, it should be frisky enough for you. It's also pretty efficient, officially averaging just over 55mpg and emitting 118g/km of CO2.
