Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Ford Focus



Running costs and reliability

Ford Focus Blue rear

Pricing is high – opt for the new 180bhp 1.5 petrol and you’re actually well into the Ford Focus ST’s ballpark. Let’s be honest, though, Ford loves a good discount, and you’d be unlucky to pay the list price on a well-specced Focus (steer towards Zetec as a minimum, or the Ford Focus Titanium if you can). CO2 emissions across the range are low, with some tunes of the 1.0-litre petrol tax exempt. Though while claimed fuel economy figures are strong, you’ll do very, very well to match those attached to any of the Ecoboost petrol engines.
