Ford Focus Estate Zetec 1.5 120ps taxi
With a completely restyled, more sculpted exterior and a cabin space that’s more advanced and sophisticated than ever, this is the most refined Focus yet. The Focus competes directly with estate versions of the Peugeot 308, Skoda Octavia and Volkswagen Golf, against which it’s competitive in most areas. There is one area where the Ford is a fair way ahead of its rivals, and that’s how it drives. Indeed it is ‘best in the class’: smooth and strong acceleration even from low revs. The car grips well in all conditions, and the steering is accurate and good on corners. All the bare essentials are here, such as DAB radio and air-conditioning, as well as additional niceties like Bluetooth connectivity. The Zetec model also adds alloy wheels and an uprated SYNC 2 voice and touchscreen-operated infotainment system that enables you to intuitively operate the car’s navigation, entertainment and climate control systems, just by using your voice. The Zetec includes plusher seats, Ford’s innovative ‘Quickclear’ heated windscreen and front foglights. And an upgraded Active Park Assist has now been enhanced to take the stress out of both parallel and perpendicular parking. A great taxi, the Focus Estate won’t let you down.
