    Price:  £19,665

    24 September 2008 by Chris Chilton

    If you’re bored of your Focus ST’s performance or just can’t wait until next year to get your hands of the 296bhp RS, the new Mountune performance pack for the ST could be exactly what you need. Who...

    Price:  £15,000

    17 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Remember the old days when cars had steering feel? Well, get queuing up, because this could be your last chance to buy one. It’s the Fiesta ST500, Ford’s last hurrah with the old-gen car before...

  • Ford Edge HySeries (2008) review

    Price:  £1,000,000

    27 August 2008 by Jesse Crosse

    It’s a few years now since the first serious prototype fuel cell cars hummed onto the radar, yet they’re still very much at the research stage. That said, they have come a long way considering the...

  • Ford Fiesta 1.6 (2008) review

    Price:  £13,195

    27 August 2008 by Phil McNamara

    Here’s the first drive verdict on Ford’s all-new Fiesta, the most important supermini to be launched in 2008. Not only is the Fiesta Britain’s best-selling small car and the sporting driver’s choice,...

  • Ford Mondeo 1.8 Econetic (2008) review

    Price:  £18,745

    04 July 2008 by Tim Pollard

    Another week, another mainstream model that's been 'greened'. Ford is launching Econetic models across its range – with the common goal of boosting economy and battering emissions. The new Mondeo...

  • Ford Mondeo 2.2 TDCI Titanium X Estate (2008) review

    Price:  £24,405

    27 May 2008 by Ben Pulman

    Is there anything actually wrong with the Ford Mondeo? Sure, a few people may grumble about drive being sent to the front wheels, or the fact that the badge on the front is a blue oval and not a blue...

  • Ford Focus 2.0 TDCI Powershift (2008) review

    Price:  £20,050

    27 May 2008 by Ben Pulman

    Finally a mainstream manufacturer is offering an alternative to VW’s DSG twin-clutch gearbox. No, it’s not Seat, or Skoda or Audi or any other member of the Volkswagen Group, but Ford. The Blue Oval’s...

  • Ford Focus ST (2008) review

    Price:  £20,850

    06 May 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The Ford Focus ST is back, and the good news is that alongside new looks inside and out, the excellent dynamics remain unchanged. Ford has spent the mid-life nip/tuck money freshening up the visuals...

  • Ford Focus 1.6 Econetic (2008) review

    Price:  £16,550

    30 April 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Ford’s gone green with the Focus Econetic, so you can put that order for a Toyota Prius on hold. Stick a pair of sill extensions and narrow tyres on a Focus, lower it, and you get a drag factor of...

  • Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCi (2008) review

    Price:  £22,500

    09 April 2008 by Adam Towler

    The Kuga's rivals are nearly collecting their goody bags at the small crossover party, but Ford is only just arriving in its new designer suit. Has the Blue Oval missed the boat? The market might...

  • Ford C-Max 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2008) review

    Price:  £19,320

    28 March 2008 by Alex Grant

    Ford’s C-Max has always looked a little dowdy and functional when compared to its sister S-Max. The latter has shrugged off its size with sharp angles and a car-like drive, and shot off forecourts as...

  • Ford Ka and SportKa (2008) review

    Price:  £7,095

    19 March 2008 by Colin Overland

    The Ford Ka was one of the cars that started Ford's renaissance. So the Blue Oval's business problems shouldn’t distract attention from the fact that most of Ford's current European...

  • Ford Mondeo Edge 1.8TDCi (2008) review

    Price:  £17,195

    05 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    You can tell it’s a base model because of the black door handles. Check out the wheels too: 16in steelies with silver-painted plastic hubcaps. Not cool. But base-level Mondeos aren’t about cool.

  • Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2007) review

    Price:  £18,345

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    A facelifted Ford Focus diesel? Is it still fun? In a word, yes. Britain’s bestseller has been under Martin Smith’s scalpel to bring it in line with his ‘kinetic design’. Gone is the slightly mundane...

  • Ford Verve concept (2007) review

    15 October 2007 by James Foxall

    Ford Verve? Isn’t that the Fiesta replacement? It certainly is, although by the time it goes on sale in November 2008 it’ll probably be called Fiesta again. Whatever the name, the new car will have a...

    01 October 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Er, it’s CAR magazine, not What Van? magazine… We know, but allow us this indulgence. Well not indulgence, but vans are always great fun, and no van is more fun than this, the SportVan. Ignore the...

    Another hydrogen-powered Focus – what’s the difference between this and the FCV? The H2 ICE stands for hydrogen internal combustion engine. It has the kind of engine you’d recognize - Ford’s global...

    Aren’t alternative fuel vehicles meant to look like escapees from Buck Rogers? They used to, but Ford has the right idea. The only difference between this and a conventional Focus is a tiny ‘FFV’...
