Comfortable and good fun car to drive

Have owned this car for nearly a year. Purchased nearly new from a ford dealership who were efficient and friendly. It has proven to be very comfortable and also good fun to drive- really agile and responsive steering.Grips very well in normal road conditions on Michelin Primacy Sport tyres. They are not however particularly good in snow. Will change these to Michelin Cross Climates when the opportunity arises, as these were extremely good in poor road conditions on old focus and made the car significantly quieter with reduced road noise. Gearbox and clutch very smooth, the seats are comfortable with lots of adjustment, great sound system and also the headlights are very bright so good for night driving. Have had no problems with the car so far although it is still early days. 1.5 ecoboost engine has good amount of power and cruises very well on the motorway in 6th at low rpm. Very pleasantly suprised by its ability on steep hills in the West Country where previous non-turbo 1.6 focus struggled. Fuel economy quite variable- usually about mid 30s for local (mostly town) driving however on long motorway drives I have seen an average of about 48mpg which is much better. Not many other downsides I have found. Considering Zetec S was comparable in price to a Titanium when new, it seems a bit odd only having one-touch down (not even up) just on the drivers window. Also the boot size which is quite limited for a car of its size- although at least it came with a spare. Another family member has just purchased a focus estate which drives just as well as the hatchback but the bootspace is much more practical.
