Why Choose a used Ford Focus?

The Ford Focus is up there with the best selling cars in the UK, and for a good reason! It’s one of the best-loved family hatchbacks and since its arrival in 1998, replacing the ageing Ford Escort, its revolutionary styling, engineering, and technology have all contributed to it being such a popular choice for a wide range of drivers. It is one of the most reliable cars you can buy, and thanks to amazingly precise handling and punchy engines, it offers a fun drive too! This all makes choosing a second-hand Ford Focus an easy decision.

What do you get with a used Ford Focus?

The Ford Focus is well equipped with impressive boot space and excellent interior quality. With incredible reliability, all the tech you will ever need and competitive pricing, it’s not hard to see why it continually tops the UK’s sales charts. There are a huge choice of engine sizes with the Ford Focus, from the EcoBoost engine to the ST.

What do you get in terms of performance?

The Ford Focus is an absolute pleasure to drive! It has a fantastic rear-suspension set-up, keeping it planted and competent around bends. There are a huge choice of engines available, but whichever engine you go for, the Ford Focus will never disappoint in terms of performance, across the entire range.

And how about running costs?

The most efficient are the pre-facelift models as a 1.6 litre TDCi Econetic delivers 55mpg. Having said that the non-Econetic models are much more common and almost as frugal in everyday driving. Go for a more powerful 2.0 litre diesel and this drops to around 50mpg, or opt for the Powershift automatic and this will see it drop again by around 5mpg.

The Petrol engines range from a 1.0 litre to a 1.6 litre, with or without a turbocharger. You can expect to see between 35-45mpg from these engines in everyday use, with the 1.0 litre being at the higher end of the scale. If you opt for a 1.6 litre petrol used Ford Focus, it’s unlikely you will pay more than £30 a year in road tax, as long as they were registered before the tax changes came into effect from April 2017.
