I wouldn’t have actually picked this car as a Ford, the Focus has had some serious plastic surgery. The kind where you know something has been done to make it look better, but they’ve cleverly hidden the nips and tucks and overall it’s slicker, sleeker, chic-er and more modern.
There is a leather steering wheel which has a flat bottom - great to get that on a lower-priced car. It also has a circular gear stick which is very similar to the one Landrover uses. On a Ford. Someone’s punching above their weight level with the design in here, and we like it. It looks more expensive than it is and I feel good driving it.
You’ll get Apple Carplay and Android Auto as standard. It’s just the easiest tech to use because you plug your phone in and are instantly hooked up to the 8 inch multimedia screen. It takes the main apps from your phone like maps and Spotify and lets you use the screen as you would your phone. You can also use voice control to make calls and send texts. Easy. And safe.
