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: Zetec

Builds on entry-level Style trim with front foglights, a heated windscreen, a front centre armrest, a leather steering wheel and gearknob, cruise control and an 8.0in colour touchscreen infotainment system. This includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBlue 120

Although we’ve not sampled all the diesels, we've tried this 118bhp version, which is likely to remain the sweet spot. It offers a good spread of shove once you’ve got past its momentary low-end lag and is relatively quiet and smooth once it's up to speed. At idle and around town it's a bit grumbly, though.
