The Focus comes with a 1.6 naturally aspirated engine, pushing out 123 bhp through a 6-speed dual-clutch auto transmission to the front wheels. This is enough to haul it to a claimed 190kph and reach 100kph in 11.8sec - capable rather than pant-sizzling for a non-turbo lump. The claim that this modest approach makes for good economy is not a strong argument; Ford says it returns 6.3 litres/100km on average which is less than many sporty hatches. The Focus uses an old engine type - and it shows.

The rest of the moving mechanisms are also established rather than cutting edge; front Macpherson struts, independent suspension at the rear, hydraulic rather than electro-progressive rack and pinion steering and (amazingly) a real, handle operated handbrake.

Michelin Primacy rubber sits on smart multi-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels and the very capable brakes offer ABS and Stability Control as well as corner-braking intervention for tricky stop situations. The 2.65m wheelbase and 1265kg weight indicate a nippy and responsive feel, and this is complemented by a tight 11m turning circle. Coming standard with a five year warranty, the Focus promises solid backup too.
