The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The driver's seat in the Ford Focus is excellent and feels pleasantly contoured to your back and shoulders. All versions come with height and lumbar adjustment, and you can add a Comfort Seat option that provides 18-way manual adjustment. If you step up to the Vignale variant of each trim, you get a six-way powered driver's seat as standard. 

There’s loads of steering wheel rake and reach adjustment, so it's easy to find a suitable posture, whatever your proportions. The alignment of the steering wheel, pedals and seat is nigh on perfect, too, and there's the luxury of a front centre armrest.

Front and rear parking sensors are standard on all trims. You don't get a rear-view camera as standard (unless you go for the Ford Focus ST hot hatch) but you can add one as part of the optional Convenience Pack, which also includes semi-automatic parking.

All trim levels get bright full LED headlights as standard. If you avoid Trend and Titanium trims, you’ll also have the option of upgrading the headlights to matrix adaptive headlights that let you keep main beam on without dazzling other road users.

Sat nav and infotainment

In entry-level Trend trim, the Focus comes with an 8.0in infotainment touchscreen. In all other versions, you get a huge 13.2in touchscreen with a sharp display and improved graphics. The smaller screen feels a little outdated next to the upgraded version, but it’s still miles better than the system in most VWs.
