What's the used Ford Focus saloon like?

There's more than enough room inside the airy cabin for four six-foot adults, while the boot is well shaped and generous. However, by its very nature, this saloon is less practical than the hatchback version.

Height adjustment on the driver's seat, along with reach and rake adjustment on the steering wheel, means drivers of all shapes and sizes should find an excellent driving position, while the dash is a lesson to other manufacturers for its clarity and ease of use. It's all put together with a quality to rival the very best in the class.

However, it's the way the Focus drives that really sets it apart - think sports car rather than small family car. It has a wonderful blend of sharp handling, generally smooth ride and excellent composure through the bends, all topped off by fine refinement at motorway speeds.

If there is a slight complaint, it's that the price you pay for the sharp handling is a firm low-speed ride
