Which used Ford Focus hatchback should I buy?
Unless you need a diesel for long-distance fuel economy, the 123bhp 1.0-litre petrol will suit all your needs in terms of performance and running costs. The 118bhp 1.5-litre is the best diesel option and is reasonably flexible once you’ve got past the turbo lag.
Studio trim is a bit too basic, and since Titanium doesn’t cost much more than Zetec, we'd suggest you go for the higher-spec model. ST-Line is worth it if you want sportier handling, but ST-Line X is a touch uncomfortable, due to its bigger wheels. Titanium X and Vignale come loaded with luxury features but don't address the rather dowdy interior and therefore don't make the Focus feel a premium as the Audi A3.
Our favourite Ford Focus: 1.0 125 Ecoboost Titanium
