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

The engineSee full engine specs
The 2.0-litre diesel engine, available only in the Focus ST, makes 187bhp. Its power delivery is more abrupt than the petrol version and it runs out of puff once you’re past 3,500rpm. It's nothing like as fast as the petrol engine 0-62mph takes 7.6sec for the diesel vs 5.7sec for the petrol. It will prove much more fuel-efficient, though.
