    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...

  • 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 Focus FFV (2007) review

    Price:  £14,795

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

    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’...

  • Ford Focus FCV (2007) review

    25 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Why am I supposed to get excited about a last-generation Focus saloon? Partly because it has a spec-sheet that reads like a Porsche 911 GT3 RS – ultra-thin lightweight glass, bespoke parts in...

  • Ford Focus Coupe-Cabriolet TDCi CC-2 (2006) review

    Price:  £17,795

    20 September 2006 by Peter Burgess

    Yawn! Another coupe-cabrio! We've had hundreds of them in 2006... Ford might be talking about the way forward, but it's pretty backward when it comes to spotting emerging market segments. It was late...
