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.

On top of Zetec trim this SUV-inspired trim adds a raised ride height, 17in alloy wheels, keyless start and entry, LED front fog lights, auto wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and privacy glass.

If you're a diesel fan, the 118bhp 1.5L Ecoblue 120 represents the sweet spot of the diesel range, providing a good spread of shove once you get past its initial low-end turbo lag and hitting 0-62mph in a respectable 10.0sec flat. Officially it'll average up to 67.3mpg, too, and with 111g/km of CO2 and RDE2 compliance, it's not a bad choice for high-mileage company car drivers. Can sound a bit grumbly though.
