The Ford Focus (2004-08) was the most serviced model in the UK in 2017, according to automotive technical information provider Autodata.

It was the third consecutive year the model topped Autodata's ranking.

A spokesman said: "The Focus was the world's top-selling car worldwide in 2004 and the top selling in the UK from 1998 until 2009, when it was dethroned by the Ford Fiesta.

"Considering that there are more than 1.5 million Focuses on UK roads, it's no surprise that it is currently the most popular model seen in UK workshops."
