Ford Focus Back to top
It's hard to believe that it's nearly 15 years since the Ford Focus first rolled off the forecourt in the UK - and this versatile family car is still going strong.
The first Focus made an instant impact when it was launched in 1998 as it raised the bar for hatchbacks and much of its longevity is due to a combination of low running costs and the excellent value for money it provides.
Factor in responsive handling, fuel efficiency and an industry-leading safety record and it's easy to see why it's such a popular choice with motorists of all ages.
Why buy a Focus? Back to top
The Ford Focus range is strong across the board.
Ford prides itself on the sturdiness of its Focus models that shows out on the road. Most models have excellent fuel economy - ranging from 26mpg to over 74mpg - and drive with real purpose, so it's an all-round family car that will A to B and right through to Z with no problems, especially with the larger diesel engines.
The only problem with brand new Focus' is that they depreciate in value quite quickly, but this should work in your favour when you're buying a used model.
An impressive range of features is available across the entire Focus range, with the ST-3 packing the most bang for your buck into its comfortable interior.
The Ford Focus is one of those family cars that give you comfort, reliability and modern style without burning a hole in your pocket. Its affordability and expert engineering means that you get a sturdy and well-built car for a great price, whichever model you might choose.
The ST-3 at the top of the range has extra added comfort with heated seats in the front of the car, but the fact that that feature is missing from other models doesn't mean that you lose comfort in any way. Honestly, the Ford Focus is spacious and comfortable throughout the entire range.
It's one of the most affordable cars on the market, not just in terms of the initial purchase, but also in terms of what it costs to run it. Most models offer good fuel economy and maintenance and repair costs are normally rather reasonable.
Old Focus' tend to feel a little roomier on the inside and in the boot, but the sloping roof design on the new model seems to lessen that feel. It's still very comfortable and not cramped in the slightest, so it's perfect in terms of practicality.
Safety is paramount and the Focus always scores well in the Euro NCAP crash tests, with the Ford Focus 1.6 TDCI 'Trend' earning five stars in the 2012 Euro NCAP crash tests.
