The Ford Focus, doesn't exactly ooze forecourt appeal, but it has always
impressed out on the test drive.
However, having a great chassis isn't enough these days. To impress people,
a modern family hatchback has to be stylish, economical, luxurious and
packed full of the latest technology. And the MK3 Focus was starting to
feel a bit lacking in these areas.
That's why Ford has given the Focus one of the most extensive mid-life
updates in history, while retaining the same starting price of £13,995.
The most obvious change is to the looks. The car now gets the Aston
Martin-esque grille and sleeker headlamps like the Fiesta. The rear has
been given similar treatment with new bumpers and new light clusters.
There's a punchy new 1.5-litre turbo
petrol which can return over 50mpg and a 1.5-litre diesel which can do
74mpg and emits under 100g/km CO2 so is free from road tax.
The existing 1.0-litre EcoBoost
petrol, which is one of the best, if not the best engine of its kind on the
market is still available, too. In higher power 125bhp guise it has just
about enough performance for a car of this size and Ford says it can do
One of the biggest challenges ford has faced with the Focus was trying to
make it feel as upmarket inside as a Volkswagen Golf. All but the entry
level car has a new 8-inch touchscreen system which not only looks good,
but is easier to operate than the old system which had a confusing array of
buttons. There's also the new SYNC system which has a much better array of
useful voice commands and is easier to use.
Refinement has been improved, and the suspension has been changed to make
it more cushioning over bumps. The steering is slightly sharper over the
previous model, too.
So then, as before the Focus is a car which will impress on the test drive.
Importantly, the improvements to the looks, technology, economy and the
quality, are clear and so the new Ford Focus is now more likely to impress
people on the forecourt too.

It's the original four-door coupé -- and now, the CLS is back for its
difficult second instalment! Since 2004, a total of 170,00 customers have
been seduced by the big Mercedes' blend of luxury and striking good looks.
And it's inspired the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7. So can the
all-new CLS pick up where its predecessor left off?

Ford Focus 1.0T Ecoboost long-term test part 1 - What Car?
Read the full Ford Focus review http://bit.ly/z6A1H2
Our new Ford Focus has just arrived. It's our favourite model -- the
1.0-litre three-cylinder 125 EcoBoost petrol in Zetec trim -- and What Car?'s
Barnaby Jones can't wait to spend the next year driving it.
Why? Because the engine is so smooth and quiet; because the ride, handling
and steering are so sweetly judged; because it promises strong performance
with impressive economy; and because it's one of the best small family cars
If you want your car to be fun, practical, refined and cheap to run, this
Focus could be the ideal car for you. We look forward to telling you if
it's all it's cracked up to be over the next 12 months.
