Introduction

The 2018 Ford Focus is cheaper and larger than before and powered by updated range of petrol and diesel engines. 

Priced from £19,400, this Ford Focus estate undercuts the outgoing model on price and spec, with entry-level Style models getting automatic headlights, alloy wheels, autonomous emergency braking, electronic parking brake and a spare wheel as standard.

The engine range includes the familiar three-cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol. There is also a new four-cylinder 1.5 Ecoboost unit that uses cylinder deactivation tech to save fuel under light loads. Outputs range from 85PS to 182PS, with 1.0-litre units using a six-speed manual gearbox and 1.5 engines getting the option of Ford’s new eight-speed auto.

Despite the backlash against diesel, the 2018 Focus gets two TDCi units in the form of 1.5 and 2.0 EcoBlue diesels. Outputs range from 95PS - 150P and the 1.5 EcoBlue will return 80.7mpg, while the 1.0 EcoBoost will return as much as 60.1mpg according to the advertised figures. All engines have been assessed under the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP).

The new car is laden with tech; adaptive cruise control features a stop and go function that can read speed signs so it can automatically adjust its speed to comply. Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist system now detects pedestrians and cyclists and can automatically apply the brakes if it detects a potential collision. Evasive Steering Assist will help the drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid accidents.

There are five trim levels to choose from - Style, Zetec, ST-Line, Titanium and Vignale. Prices for the estate in Style trim start at £19,400. Range-topping Vignale models start from £25,350 for the hatch and £26,900 for the estate.
