The two bodies are completely different, yet the space inside them is virtually identical. The cracking 3-door coupe is £400 less, and a benefit of its low rearward sloping rear window is excellent vision for reverse-parking. They are five seaters with five proper belts, but there's less headroom and comfort for back seat piggy-in-the-middle than there is in the new Focus.
