Ford deservedly has a great reputation for serving up cars with superb handling, and the Focus has been at the front of the pack. Communicative steering and supple suspension are hugely satisfying and the latest engines offer excellent performance and low running costs. We’re big fans of the Focus ST, which is even available as an estate if you need to move things in a hurry. The facelifted interior is a big improvement, and Ford’s latest SYNC 3 infotainment system is easy to use.
