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: Active

This is based on Zetec trim, but along with its raised ride height and rugged looks adds 17in alloy wheels, LED front fog lights, a black roof, privacy glass, keyless start and sat-nav.

Engine: 1.5 EcoBoost 150

If you regularly carry lots of people and need more oomph, the 1.5 petrols have a bit more guts. Thus far, we’ve tried only the 180bhp version, though.
