2016 Ford Focus Review

The Ford Focus may be one of the world’s best selling cars, but the Blue Oval brand insists topping local sales charts isn’t a priority for its overhauled small car. Proving this, the 2016 Ford Focus ‘LZ’ range drops the entry-level Ambiente specification, which had a circa-$20K starting price that appealed primarily to fleet managers and put it head-to-head with rental car specials such as the Toyota Corolla Ascent and Hyundai i30 Active...

Sporty small hatch comparison : Mazda 3 v Ford Focus v Holden Cruze v Hyundai i30 v Nissan Pulsar

Almost anyone can throw on a pair of gym shorts and runners and look reasonably sporting in the checkout line at Coles, and the same is true with cars – the addition of alloy wheels, a spoiler and foglights can suddenly make your small hatchback look at least a bit athletic. As ever, though, it's the muscles beneath the clothes that counts...

So, with that in mind, we’ve come here today to Sandown Raceway, to take part in one of our weekend warrior track tests… Ford’s replacement for the XR5 Turbo, the Focus ST costs a little over $38,000 and comes with a super torquey turbocharged 2...

Ford Focus ST v Holden Astra VXR: Comparison Review

Ford versus Holden, the definitive Australian automotive rivalry, seen here but not as we know it. There's not a V8 engine, a sedan body or a rear-wheel-drive configuration in sight. Instead, we have a pair of hot hatches, both (re)launched inside the past few months, that go about doing broadly the same thing as each other in notably different ways...

Hot hatch comparison: Volkswagen Golf GTI v Ford Focus ST v Renault Sport Megane 265

It’s rare that a higher-specification variant of a popular mainstream car would be the best-seller in the range, but that tells you much about the enduring status and appeal of the Volkswagen Golf GTI. With one in four Golfs driving out of VW showrooms wearing the revered three-letter badge, the GTI is almost ubiquitous on Australian streets...

2016 Ford Focus pricing and specifications

The 2016 Ford Focus hatch and sedan range will arrive in Australia — at last — in October this year, and the company appears to be making a bold move upmarket. Unlike the current (non-ST) Ford Focus range, available in four specification levels with three engine choices, the MY16 range will come with three specification options and just one choice of engine — a 1...

2016 Ford Focus RS to boast 257kW and up to 470Nm

2014 Ford Focus Titanium Review

The Ford Focus is a great car with everything you'd want in a small car including the price. The Focus's ride and handling has a great feel to it and it's best in class, much better than the Kia Cerato. The optional Sports Executive Pack includes Radar Assisted Cruise Control, Active City stop and also HID Bi-Xenon headlights with static cornering and jet washers...

2011 Ford Focus SPORT Review

My Ford Focus Sport is the Sedan: I'm going to kick this review off by talking about the things I don't like. The first thing is the small boot opening: I've recently moved house and when I was loading the boot with my possessions I needed to place a small TV stand in it, It would not go in the boot opening so I had to open the rear door and fold down the rear seats just so it would fit...

2014 Ford Focus TREND Review

Having owned the ford focus for 8 months now i have grown to love this compact car. The 2l engine whilst isn't turbocharged loves to rev and performs very strongly and returns an average of 7.3l per 100kms. it is very quiet on the road and the chassis is great if you like to go a little to fast around some twisty corners...

2014 Ford Focus TREND Review

Performance is very poor for 125kw engine. The power isn't available until very high in the rev range and the torque underwhelming. When combined with the normal hesitation of a dual clutch it makes for painful city driving. It desperately needs a supercharger to get this power happening at low revs...
