Entry-level Focus model available from 1 September

Ford is set to launch a new £13,995 entry-level version of the Focus.

The Ford Focus Studio is a replacement for the Focus Sport, which was a previous-generation Focus sold alongside the new third-generation model. It will be launched in September and will be available for 61-plate customers.

The standard equipment on the Focus Studio includes 16-inch sports-style alloy wheels, body-coloured rear spoiler, radio/CD player with USB connectivity, air-conditioning, electrically-operated body-coloured mirrors with integrated indicators, electrically operated front windows, cap-less refueling and ESP.

The Focus Studio will be available as a five-door hatchback only and comes equipped with an 84bhp 1.6–litre petrol engine. Three colour choices are offered: Panther Black, Moondust Silver and Frozen White.Niki Sorabjee

Our Verdict

Ford Focus 2011-2014
A big seller is the 113bhp 1.6-litre diesel in Zetec trim.
