The Ford Focus has a bit less headroom than some rivals, such as the VW Golf, and a lot less legroom than the Skoda Octavia, but it will still be comfortable for two average-height adults to sit in – even on long journeys. Anyone stuck in the middle will find the raised tunnel and hard cushion a bit frustrating, though.
There are a couple of shallow storage areas to the side of the seat, but they’re odd shapes and they’re not rubberised, so anything you put in them will rattle around. All models get map pockets on the back of the front seats.
Access to the back seats is fine, if nothing exceptional. The doors could open a touch wider and the roof cuts in a bit more than in boxier-shaped rivals such as the VW Golf, but it’ll still be quite easy to duck into the back seats with a squirming child.
