Ford Focus estate going down a storm

Ford Focus estate going down a storm

The new estate version of the Ford Focus seems to have struck a chord with UK buyers, as the carmaker has already received 2,000 pre-orders.

With a range of premium features included as standard and a full range of low-emission engines, Ford estimates that almost one in five of the Focus cars it sells will be a new estate version.

Drivers can enjoy a top-of-the-range audio system, with DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, voice control and USB connection points.

This version should also be very cheap to run, as the 1.6-litre CDTi engine emits just 106g of CO2 per km.

Mark Simpson, marketing director at Ford Britain, said: "The all-new Ford Focus has been a big hit with UK customers. The estate's athletic looks gives the car its own unique personality."

Prices will start at £17,100 on the road, including over £1,000 of added extras, when compared with the outgoing version.
