What Car? says...
You hear so much about the rise of the SUV, and with good reason: they account for more than a third of all the cars sold in the UK. However, there's still lots to love about traditional hatchbacks, such as the Ford Focus.
The Focus dominates the top end of the sales charts, and that success has much to do with perhaps its greatest asset: a legacy of serving up brilliant handling. That's something that's tricky to replicate in a taller, heavier family SUV. What’s more, for this latest version, Ford has worked to improve the areas where previous versions have dropped the ball, namely interior quality, rear leg room, boot space and on-board tech.
