What would you recommend I replace my 2011 Ford Focus with?

I'm looking to replace my 2011 Focus 1.6 Ecoboost Titanium. I like the Focus handling and performance but note previous comments that the Focus has been superseded by competitors. What would be you recommend as an alternative now? I do about 10,000 miles per year.

The latest facelift Volkswagen Golf 1.5 TSI 150 is probably best of the lot now: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/volkswagen/volkswa.../
