Ford have just launched the new Focus on the market with lots of new materials and options available, Ford want to be number one in the market and the consumer is winning.

The family hatchback or if you’re in the trade, c-segment is the toughest place for any car company to operate in. For years Ford seemed to sit there at the number one position in the sale chart and that was down to the Focus.

Back in 1999 the Escort was retired and the Focus was launched, it was an angular car that most people seemed to like and it was a proper driver’s car. While the Focus got bigger and was never as good to drive again the new one is really putting up to the competition.

It’s this competition that’s not only heathy but it means the consumer is better looked after on all ends of the chain. Ford now have a five year warranty that’s limited to 100,000kms, there’s also the finance offers with Ford rate being a very competitive 5.9% and prices for the Focus ranging from €20,695 up to €30,490.

The car has also been improved, especially on the interior where there are lots of lovely touchy-feely materials throughout the cabin. There’s also an optional large colour touch screen, while it’s good to look at it’s an €800 option.

There’s a good solid feel to the car on the road, my favourite from the range is the estate version. There’s a big boot and four shopping bag hooks as well as a nice bit of room in the back seat.

The faster ST version can be ordered now with deliveries in summer, the 2.3ltr 320hp RS version will be here next year.

We’ll have a full review as soon as we can. Here's a full list of cars available not including delivery or options.
