If someone asked you to think of a typical, average, family-sized hatchback, we’ll wager the car that’d most likely spring to mind would be this – the Ford Focus.
Not only is it fun to drive and pleasant to look at, but it also offers an enormous breadth of talent not normally found in this sector.
The steering is a particular Focus highlight, and this model retains a level of accuracy and response so often lacking from its rivals. It grips well and handles tidily, with more than a hint of fun, plus, the ride is excellent, being comfortable and composed over urban ruts and potholes.
Our car looks incredible finished in Magnetic Grey Metallic with a complimenting Charcoal Black Upholstery and has covered just 33,200 Miles through One Previous Keeper and comes with a Full Service History, it also costs a mere £20 Per Year to Tax.
Power comes courtesy of Ford's award winning 1.0 Litre EcoBoost Turbo Petrol engine and in this car it's the more powerful 125 BHP version. It's mated to the superb 6 Speed Manual Transmission and performance is very impressive whilst economy is simply outstanding, 60.1 MPG (ECC) being achievable.
Additional features on this 'Zetec Navigation' model include * SYNC 2 DAB Radio/CD, 8" Colour Touch Screen, Emergency Assistance, Bluetooth Connection, & Advanced Voice Control, * SYNC 2 Nav System, * Eco Mode, * 'Quickclear' Heated Windscreen/Heated Washer Jets, * Front Fog Lights, * 3 Spoke Leather Steering Wheel, * Driver's Seat Manual Height Adjust, * Sports Style Front Seats, * 16" 5x2 Spoke Alloy Wheels.
This is the world's best selling global nameplate - with good reason. Has any car had more of an impact on modern era motoring than the Ford Focus?
With over 12 million global sales on the board, it's hard to argue the point.
What is most liked about it is that despite the drive towards better efficiency, improved safety, greater practicality and beefier build quality, it remains, underneath it all, the rewarding steer it's always been - an entertainer at heart.
