The new Ford Focus looks fantastic. By far the biggest improvement is the cabin quality: it’s on a par with the VW Golf and Mercedes A-Class. There are a host of new engines, and a new 8-speed automatic gearbox you’d actually want to choose. Space is in plentiful supply, especially in the back. The only downside: the price is also on a par with the VW Golf and Mercedes A-Class. And the options lists are longer – and pricier – than before.
