  • Summary

    Sparse, glum, everywhere.

Style & Design
7/10

The second-generation Focus is a more mature design than the original, but that’s not to say it looks any better. Oddly, this time around the saloon and estate are better looking than the hatch. The ST has proper hot-hatch add-ons while the Coupe Cabrio is also pretty, but a little big-bottomed.

Performance
7/10

All models perform well, even the 1.4, considering it is the entry-level model, (0-100km/h in 14.1 seconds), but the 1.6 (11.9) and 1.6 TDCi (12.6) would be better choices if you can afford them. The 2.5 Turbo in the ST is as hot as a hot hatch can get, with a 0-100 time of just 6.8 seconds.

Ride & Handling
10/10

Even the most basic Focus rides with surprising maturity and handles with aplomb. Steering feel, strong brakes, a slick gearbox - it’s all here. The ST takes turns the handling wick up to 12, while even the Coupe Cabrio handles well, depite the lack of rigidity.

Interior & Ergonomics
7/10

The dashboard is less haphazard than the original model, and made of nicer materials. Everything falls easily to hand and it couldn’t be simpler to use. Storage areas low down are less impressive and basic models tend to look stripped out.

Quality & Refinement
8/10

While some of the plastic is soft-feel stuff, below your eyeline it becomes cheap and scratchy. Mechanically, the Focus seems very robust, riding well and soaking up bumps impressively, but there is some road noise through the sporty suspension.

Safety
7/10

Despite the 5-star NCAP, the Focus does without ISOFIX child seat mounts and stability control on most models. There’s no speed warning chime or rear seat belt warning either. It’s solid and tough, but doesn’t drive the safety issue home.

Space & Practicality
8/10

It’s hard to imagine that a small family would need more space than you get in a Focus. The rear is big enough for adults, the doors open wide, and the boot is vast. There’s even decent space for knick-knacks, but base models lack proper centre console.

Value & Running Costs
7/10

The Focus should prove cheap to run and insure and easy to sell on, provided you buy one in a nice colour with alloy wheels and air-conditioning. The 1.6 diesel will be especially desirable used, while a five-door ST will be expensive to own but easy to shift afterwards. Consider the cheap FFV too.

Equipment
6/10

You get the feeling that Ford puts in as little as it can possibly get away with. You need to spend some money if you want a centre console, rear electric windows, a trip computer or cruise control. Even top ST model feels a little sparse.

Engine Specifications
8/10

The Focus boasts an impressive engine range. The 80bhp 1.4 lacks punch, but it likes to rev. The 100bhp 1.6 is a little livelier, but the 90bhp 1.6 TDCi is the best real-world engine. The 2.5 Turbo is fantastic, but the automatics are old-school four-speeds and only available with one engine.

Girls generally don't smile at blokes for no reason, but I seem to be lapping up all kinds of admiring looks and wry smiles today. It can't be my clean-cut good looks because I've been parking in front of a computer for three days and, frankly, I look like death warmed up. My beany's a delightful shade of snot green and I've just realised my T-shirt is on inside out. Oh, and there's a coleslaw stain down the front and my fly is open, too. They don't care though - they keep glancing provocatively in my direction and in come cases, nodding with that 'Oh, wow' look in their eyes. Either I'm suddenly sporting Clooney-esque sex appeal or the fairer sex is really taken with this new Focus Coupe Cabriolet.



I hope someone comes up with a proper, generic name for the coupe cabriolet soon. Do you know how many hours of my life I waste writing those words? Despite the clunky alliteration, Coupe Cabriolet is what Ford insists on calling its folding hardtop Focus - not Twin Top, as Opel rather saucily refers to its convertible Astra, nor CC, as employed by the French. Nope, it's Coupe Cabriolet, so deal with it. That's not the only awkward thing about Focus CoCa (that's my new name for it) - the rear overhang is also incredibly cumbersome. It's caused by the need to put that two-piece folding roof somewhere when it's not wanted but it positively ruins the taut, teutonic lines of the rest of the Focus body. It also eats into rear seat space, which means the CoCa is really a 2+2 instead of a fully-fledged four-seater. Opel, by comparison, used a complex three-piece roof to keep the Astra Twin Top's proportions tight and the detailing just so (though it's no more spacious inside) whereas Ford opted for a cheaper two-piece set up and the results speak for themselves. You might think it's less prone to problems (and you might well be right on a longterm basis) but during the week I drove the Focus it liked to let water through point where windscreen and roof meet and drop a big dollop of it on my right forearm from time to time. Lovely.

Despite the big bum and my soggy sleeve, I'm still quite enamored by the new Focus CoCa. The optional tan leather lifts the interior ambience and makes it feel expensive and classy. In Titanium specification there are handsome 17-inch wheels and painted black, as our test car was, the chrome highlights really jump out making the CoCa seem like a very upmarket machine indeed. Powered by a 2.0-litre engine, there's reasonably go, too, while the handling is better than just about any cabrio I've driven this year bar the 207 CC, impressively rigid and sure-footed with the roof off and positely carlike when it's in place.

The Focus CoCa is just one of those feelgood cars. There's something about it that exudes quality and class, depsite the bulbous behind. Or perhaps the prodigous posterior why women like it so much. With a rump like the Focus CoCa's, your own backside is never going look anything but microscopic. Does my ass look big in this? Impossible, darling. You look fabulous.
