Revised and refined, the all-new Ford Focus Estate returns to our roads with more capability than ever. Boasting the fun and dynamic driving experience that Ford owners have come to expect, as well as improved practicality, it’s the ideal model to accommodate your family’s active lifestyle.
With its sleek, contemporary looks, the Focus Estate is a true head-turner. Its aggressive front end features a prominent, honeycomb grille and angular headlamps framed by LED lighting strips. Its raked windscreen rises into a flowing roofline, which tapers towards the rear and gives a sense of streamlined athleticism. Sculpted haunches and striking alloy wheels complete the look, lending this model purpose and poise.
Step inside and you’ll find plenty of room to accommodate your growing family, with increased rear legroom and a generous, 608-litre boot. Fold the rear seats down and the space increases to an impressive 1,653 litres – more than many rivals offer.
Behind the wheel, you’ll find it easy to get comfy thanks to seats that provide a range of adjustment and good lumbar support. The cockpit is focused around you, placing controls at your fingertips and displaying key information clearly.
A choice of petrol and diesel engines is available to suit your primary driving needs. Pick the 1.0-litre petrol if you habitually travel shorter distances – it’s flexible at lower speeds and more than capable of keeping up with the traffic. There’s also a 1.5-litre petrol option if you require more punch, while diesels include a 1.5 and 2.0-litre. These are best when put to the test over longer distances, with the 1.5-litre EcoBlue model achieving 76.3mpg and emitting just 97g/km of CO2.
As for the ride, it offers all the fun and agility that you’d expect from a Ford. The Focus Estate sports a precisely tuned chassis and direct steering, delivering a dynamic and responsive drive that nevertheless remains composed through corners. With supple suspension too, you’ll barely feel the bumps in the road.
In a family car, safety takes priority, and the Ford Focus Estate is equipped with a multitude of features to ensure everyone – from your kids to pedestrians – is protected. Awarded a five-star rating by Euro NCAP, it boasts active aids such as automatic emergency braking – which recognises cars, pedestrians and cyclists in your path – and Lane Keeping Assist to help you stay centred in your lane.
Add the Driver Assistance Pack to benefit from further measures like Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control and Auto High Beam, which switches your headlights from full to dipped when it senses an oncoming vehicle, then back again when the vehicle has passed.
