Product Overview

Ford Focus 4 is a compact hatchback in production from 2018 to 2021, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.0 to 2.0 liters.
Compared to the Focus 3, the new Ford Focus has a similar exterior design. Ford further downsized the engines an introduced mild hybridization. A number of automatic transmissions became available to help improve the fuel economy, though it is questionable whether the vehicle is able to save the owner any money at all.
Ford has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.27 coefficient of drag to show for it. The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
At a base on-road price of £25,300, you get an affordable yet sophisticated drive for a lowish price. The new three-cylinder doesn't give the car massive performance (8.3sec 0-62mph is decently brisk rather than truly fast, though the 137mph top speed is quicker than any one of us will need) But it delivers so smoothly, with such a sophisticated sound and willing response that you can't help liking it a lot.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Comfortable ride
  • Decent handling
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals

veline shunt if you don't properly finesse gearshifts. On Michelin Cup 2 tyres and with lightly revised suspension geometries, it also steers genuinely well. Fuel economy varies between 30mpg when you’re cruising off-boost to as little as 8mpg for cross-country blasts.

Pros
  • Punchy, fun to drive
  • Powerful engine
Cons
  • Lacklustre handling

Ford has launched two special editions to bid farewell to its quickest hatchback. The limited-to-300, £36,295 Race Red edition comes in only one colour. An even rarer Heritage Edition in Tief Orange, of which there will only ever be 50 sold in the UK, has since surfaced – with an exalted £39,895 price.

Pros
  • Superb performance
  • Superb ride
  • Excellent handling
Cons
  • Ride is stiffer than rivals

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
With 187bhp, this is the most powerful diesel-powered Focus to date. But it's still substantially down on power compared to the 276bhp 2.3-litre ST Ecoboost. EcoBlue will be offered only with a six-speed manual gearbox. It's also 42kg heavier and therefore slower: Ford's claimed 7.7sec 0-62mph time is respectable.

Pros
  • Powerful diesel engine
  • Decent fuel economy
Cons
  • Lack of fun to drive
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
It's not quite got the grit of a Renault Sport Mégane or the gloriously natural heft of Honda’s Civic Type R. Track mode untethers a playful side but disable the stability control and the ST becomes as wildly flamboyant as you can handle. Mid-corner stability is very good, if not quite a match for some of the more hardcore hot hatches, and body movements are nicely controlled.

Pros
  • Class-leading handling
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • No manual gearbox
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Ford's C2 platform provides a fantastic basis for a family hatch. The ST treatment amplifies this athletic disposition to levels that are really quite remarkable. Adaptive dampers are standard, with Normal and Sport firmness settings. Opt for the Performance pack and you’ll get Track mode, which tightens things even further.

Pros
  • Gazelle-like agility
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Loofness on the road

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Autocar readers will have seen that we declared the Focus ST a better hot hatch than the new Volkswagen Golf GTI. The question that hangs over this seven-speed automatic version is whether the extra £1450 you spend on the gearbox is worth the investment over a manual. The auto is virtually as rapid as the manual, but it’s a good deal more effortless, especially for the kind of driving with a high workload.

Pros
  • Fast and easy to drive
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • No automatic gearbox
  • Not as fast as manual

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Fears about the torsion beam back end lacking dynamism are soon dispelled. This Focus can carry speed along a flowing road as well as any of its antecedents. The 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine remains an impressive engine, but when asked to haul around a car of this size it is not a fast one.

Pros
  • Powerful Ecoboost engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lacks dynamism
  • No under-thigh support

The 1.5 179bhp engine is quiet and smooth too. It only emits/consumes 124g/km/51.4mpg on the new WLTP fuel cycle. All models get strong levels of active safety kit. Only the base version doesn’t get a touchscreen with mobile phone mirroring.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine is well-mannered but not the most responsive or potent. On smooth surfaces, the extra height in the sidewalls of the high-profile tyres makes for a conspicuously plush ride. While the Focus Active sits taller than its rangemates, it's no longer, but the Focus already has a spacious interior, if a plain one.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Comfortable ride
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Not the most responsive engine
  • No four-wheel drive

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
There’s a new entry-level Zetec option joining the range for the first time since the fourth-generation car was introduced in 2018. The stop/start function has been recalibrated to cut the engine while coasting in gear, and the analogue rev counter and speedometer have made way for a new 12.3in digital gauge cluster. With minimal weight penalty through the adoption of that hybrid system, the Focus maintains its dynamic edge over all comers in its segment.

Pros
  • Punchy, punchy Ecoboost engine
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Not the most practical
  • Not the best value for money

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Focus Mk4 has been recalled 11 times so far, three of these times because of chafing to the engine bay wiring loom. The now-discontinued Focus Style carried a 4.2-inch colour screen, but the majority of used examples will have the eight-inch system. There’s enough head and legroom for a couple of six-footers in the back (but not three) The boot can stow 443 litres with the rear seats up, and 1,320 litres with them down.

Pros
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Excellent ergonomics
  • Good value for money
Cons
  • Lack of cambelts
