Ford sets themselves a tough challenge, to re-design their best selling European car. Get it right and they can expect sales figures as astounding as the previous model (over 4 million). Get it wrong and it could be a disaster!Inside the new Focus, Ford has continued with a technique that works well. They have used good quality, sturdy materials and have laid all controls out in a way that seems to make every switch and button feel completely intuitive. There is also plenty of space in the Ford Focus to fit four adults and their luggage. The back seats feel roomy and comfortable, and the sloping roof line that makes the exterior so attractive does not leave the focus short of headroom. In the front, the driver’s seat and steering wheels are fully adjustable to allow people of all shapes and sizes to get comfortable.Equipment levels in the Ford Focus are great with even the entry level models coming with front electric windows and height adjustable driver’s seat. All but the entry level ‘Studio’ model, also come with air-con remote central locking and CD player.The drive has always been the selling point of the Ford Focus.

The handling is great, the steering is precise, and there is a huge range of engines to choose from, so all tastes will be satisfied. Owning the new Ford Focus will put a smile on your face every time you drive it.So, has Ford done the impossible and bettered the old Focus? Yes.
