Ford Focus Estate - Best estate cars

The Ford Focus Estate delivers a fun-driving and family-friendly option at a sensible price

The Ford Focus Estate model is here to remind us that the original family-friendly format still has a lot to offer. More handsome and stylish than before, with flowing lines that are far from boxy, the Focus Estate combines practical load-lugging ability with a fun-to-drive factor you’ll struggle to find in a top-heavy compact SUV or MPV.

With solid build quality, efficient mild-hybrid engines and gearbox options plus trim levels to suit every pocket, it’s only the fickle finger of fashion that stands between the Focus Estate and soaring sales.

Entry-level Zetec models feature a good level of standard equipment, including a 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, air conditioning, cruise control with a speed limiter, a heated front screen and LED daytime running lights. 

With the rear seats in use you get a massive 728-litres of load area, which compares well to just 443 litres in the hatch. Fold the rear seats down and you’re rewarded with a flat 1,620 litres of load space.
