The best car in its class
Nothing at all.
These are great cars, this is my second Focus. I looked at other cars in its class and the only one that came anywhere near close was the Peugeot 307.
Performance is excellent for a diesel, its definitely quicker than my previous 1.6, especially on the motorway. Economy seems to be good. Its also very refined for a diesel.
The only real gripe I have about the Focus is the lack of standard ABS.
Otherwise I can't think of anything that comes close for the money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
