It’s no secret that the name Ford has been synonymous with quality engineering for decades. But one of its most popular and enduring models has become the biggest selling car in the world this year. Why?
The Ford Focus is a masterpiece of smart design coupled with the heritage of brilliance we rightly expect from this manufacturer. From the imposing appearance of the front grille and bonnet, through to the slick bodywork and stylish set of its hatchback, this car rises above the mediocrity of its rivals on appearance alone.
But look beyond the cool exterior and you will find a workhorse. It can ferry a family around on holiday. It can swallow up motorway miles effortlessly. It can transport you and your luggage reliably and without complaint, as it has been doing for so many drivers since the first Focus hit the roads back in 1998.
Renowned for its slick handling, practicality and comfort, it’s swiftly become a classic. This car is spacious and economical, and an excellent choice of engines and specifications mean the Focus has something to offer virtually anyone. Keen petrol 3-doors, thrifty diesels and the glorious, sporty ST model – whatever your preference this range will accommodate it.
The modern driver demands a car which drives enjoyably, has outstanding performance, and does both with style. In this respect the 2012 Ford Focus has set a high benchmark for its competitors in the category of compact family cars.
