Ten Second Review

The Ford Focus Estate has been given a proper working over in MK4 form, with more boot space, sleeker looks, a more user-friendly interior, more efficient engines and some suspension tweaks that aim to remind us what made the Focus great in the first place. It's not the biggest or the cheapest estate in its sector, but it might just be the most appealing all-rounder.

Background

Such is the pull of small SUVs that the estate car seems to have had its last rites read time and again, yet still they struggle on. The reason why they refuse to die? They're a good idea. What's more, if people were honest about why they really needed a vehicle, an estate car would make more practical sense. They carry just as much as many SUVs, yet they're better to drive, they're lighter and more aerodynamic which means better efficiency - and they're usually cheaper to buy too. Ford's brought us some brilliant estates down the years but as much as customers have warmed to the Focus hatch, the five-door estate has never occupied a huge slice of the overall Focus sales pie chart. Perhaps this current version can formulate a more convincing argument.

Driving Experience

This fourth generation Focus estate, like its predecessors, has a reputation as a family station wagon with the ability to entertain at the wheel - and if you enjoy your driving, that's something you'll appreciate pretty early on the first time you try one. Twenty years ago, the original version of this model achieved much the same thing by standardising advanced multi-link rear suspension across its model line-up. Today, you get that too - in contrast to the hatch body shape which restricts this more advanced damping set-up to its most powerful 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol and 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel variants. To give you the engine line-up in full, things kick off with the brand's familiar three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol powerplant, available in a 125PS variant that features cylinder deactivation, plus it can also be had in mHEV mild hybrid form in 125 or 155PS forms. Next up for petrol people is the 1.5-litre four cylinder EcoBoost engine with 150PS, borrowed from the Fiesta ST hot hatch, this unit also available with 182PS. The Focus ST gets a 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol unit with 280PS. As for diesels, well there are 90 and 120PS versions of Ford's 1.5-litre EcoBlue powerplant, then 150 and 190PS versions of the company's 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel. The ride isn't overly firm, but body control through the bends is exemplary, allowing you at the wheel to make the most of the stiff new C2 platform, the feelsome power steering and the torque vectoring control system that helps you get the power down through the bends. It all combines to create a car that really can still reward at the wheel, even in its most affordable forms: there's still nothing else in this segment that feels quite the same. Yet it still does the sensible stuff well too, being decently refined, with confident braking and a lovely tactile gearshift.

Design and Build

The styling has useful evolved but looks a touch conservative in this station wagon guise. The front of the cabin's of much higher quality than before and comes complete with Ford's latest 'SYNC3' infotainment touchscreen in most models. There's space for four adults inside without too much of a squeeze, but levering a third body onto the rear bench will be a bit of a pinch. Since this is an estate though, our emphasis needs to be on the luggage bay, which really is a lot bigger than it is in the hatch. A typically-specified estate model fitted with a mini-spare offers up to 575-litres of capacity - or as much as 728-litres if you load to the roof. If you need more room and want to push forward the 60:40-split rear bench, then up to 1,620-litres of space is on offer, thanks to 175mm of extra loading length this time round and an extra 43mm of roof height for this generation model, an increase apparently calculated so as to enable owners to comfortably accommodate a dog crate. Go for this station wagon variant and auto-folding 'Easy Fold' rear seat backs come as standard, plus you can have a gesture-controlled powered tailgate if you're prepared to pay extra for it.

Market and Model

This estate body style attracts a premium of £1,100 over the equivalent hatch. The Focus Estate range kicks off with the base 'Zetec' variant priced at around £23,500, before progressing through 'ST-Line', 'ST-Line X', 'Titanium', 'Titanium X' and 'Vignale' variants. An SUV-style 'Active' version and an 'ST' performance variant are also available. Equipment levels reflect the fact that most customers will be paying upwards of £20,000 for this once very affordable family hatch. Even the base Focus 'Zetec' comes as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, alomng with an 8-inch SYNC3 touchscreen incorporating a DAB digital radio with Bluetooth and Emergency Assist. Plus there's an electronic parking brake, autonomous emergency braking, tyre pressure monitoring, Hill Start Assist and a Lane-Keeping Aid. If you want the base 100PS version of the 1.0 EcoBoost engine, you have to have 'Zetec' trim. Most will choose this 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine in 125PS form. If you can afford a little more and enjoy your driving, then you can go for one of the more powerful engines that come fitted with more sophisticated 'control blade' multi-link rear suspension package. These include a 150PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel and a 1.5-litre three cylinder EcoBoost petrol option, offered with either 150 or 182PS.

Cost of Ownership

Let's get to the figures, which we'll quote using WLTP measurement for fuel and WLTP measurement for CO2. Bear in mind with all the engines that if you choose the optional 8-speed auto gearbox, you'll hit your efficiency readings by around 10% - which isn't the case if you go for a Volkswagen Group model with DSG auto transmission. The latest version of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit that most choose gets increased injection pressure to facilitate efficiency. In mHEV mild hybrid form, this unit gets a lower compression ratio and a larger turbo. And the mHEV version has been embellished by a beefed-up starter/generator driven by a belt at the front of the engine that stores the energy harvested when you brake or decelerate in a tiny 48-volt lithium-ion battery secreted at the back of the car. That 1.0 EcoBoost petrol unit comes in three forms with 125PS (standard and mHEV) and 155PS, all of which return up to 55.4mpg on the combined cycle with a CO2 reading of 116g/km. For the 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, the figures are up to 44.8mpg and up to 142g/km of CO2. Or 43.5mpg and up to 147g/km of CO2 for this engine in its uprated 182PS state of tune. What about the diesels? Well, for the 1.5 EcoBlue unit in its base 95PS state of tune, you're looking at up to 62.8mpg on the combined cycle and up to 119g/km of CO2. Or up to 58.9mpg and up to 125g/km with this engine in its 120PS state of tune. For completion, we'll also give you the figures for the 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel variant - up to 60.1mpg and up to 125g/km.
