NEW

The Ford Focus is a medium to large family car produced by the Ford Motor Company, available new in both 5-door hatchback or estate form.  The Ford Focus was first introduced in 1998, and had a tough act to follow as the replacement for the long-running and hugely popular Ford Escort.  However, the Ford Focus proved to be another hit for the blue oval, and with the model now into its third generation it continues to be a popular purchase with UK car buyers.

The Ford Focus is available new from £13,995, the price tag for a Ford Focus 1.6 Studio 5-door hatchback.  The next model in the Focus family is the Ford Focus 1.6 Edge 105PS, which also provides the entry into the Focus Estate range.  The Ford Focus 1.6 Edge 105PS is available from £15,995 for the 5-door hatchback, and £17,095 for the estate, powered by a 104bhp, 1.6-litre, 16-valve petrol engine, and fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox.  The Ford Focus 1.6 Edge 105PS has a list of standard equipment including power steering, central locking, stability control, electric door mirrors, electric front windows, alarm, immobiliser, bluetooth, CD player with MP3 connectivity, and driver, passenger, and front side airbags.

Optimum fuel economy is offered by the 1.6-litre, TDCi diesel-powered models fitted with start-stop technology, which return a combined fuel economy of 67.3mpg.  These models are available from £17,095 for the Ford Focus Edge 1.6 TDCi 95PS 5-door hatchback, with the estate version priced from £18,195.

For performance-minded buyers, the 148bhp Ford Focus Titanium X 1.6T Ecoboost 5-door hatchback costs from £21,495, and accelerates from 0-62mph in just over 8.5 seconds, and to a top speed of 130mph.

The top-of-the-range Titanium trim level includes power steering, central locking, stability control, alloy wheels, climate control, electric door mirrors, electric windows, cruise control, rear parking sensors, part-leather interior, alarm, immobiliser, bluetooth, and CD player with MP3 connectivity, all as standard.

With all new Ford Focus’ boasting driver, passenger, and front side airbags, safety conscious buyers will be reassured by its overall 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
