Ford Focus Overview

The Ford Focus has been a highly successful addition to the Ford family. It has been the most popular selling car in the UK every year for the last 10 years. They are very practical cars with an emphasis on being a very affordable family car. The design of the car is highly respected and is seen as a great car to drive. This style of design is seen as a compact car.

Ford Focus History

The first Ford Focus model came into production in 1998 and was made to replace the Escort model. The first generation of the Focus, the MK-1 was from 98-2004 and had hatchback, estate and saloon types to choose from. The engines varied from 1.4-2.0 litres, and came in both automatic and manual gearboxes, with both petrol and diesel available.

The design style was seen as a very curvy in both the interior and exterior, and was to change the face of Ford. The design was also enhanced slightly as it evolved from its original state.

The second generation MK-2 was seen as an improvement and was in production from 2004-10. It was a lot heavier and larger car than the MK-1 which gave it more boot space and interior space. The new coupe cabriolet was introduced in this style and there were improvements in the design of the interior of the vehicle. A 2.5 litre ST version was also introduced. At this point the European designs and North American designs were made differently to suit each individual market.

The third generation MK-3 was introduced early in 2011 and reintegrated the American and European market to combine them for the international version. During this time there was an electric EV version brought into production.


RS – hot hatch with turbo charged 2.0 litre 16 valve engine

ST- high performance sports model in 2.5 litre turbo charged engine

Coupe Cabriolet – the convertible model with stylish interior

ECOnetic- a greener model 1.6 litre diesel engine

C-Max – an MPV version from 1.6-2.0 litre engines in diesel, petrol and flexi fuel

Fuel Economy

Due to the vast range of models in the Focus family, the fuel economy varies greatly in this. There are engines as small as the 1.6 and as high as 2.5. These engines also come in petrol, diesel and the greener range uses flexi fuel. So depending on the size of engine and the type of fuel will determine how economical the vehicle is.
