Review

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

On top of Active Edition, this adds 18in alloys, digital dials, part-leather trim, full LED headlights, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control.

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.
