It offers higher equipment levels with lower P11D values than the previous generation Focus.

Sleek styling complements the car’s agile handling and its spacious interior provides a refined and quiet ride.

The new 1.5-litre Ecoblue diesel engine offers best-in-class CO2 emissions of 91g/km, with the promise of more than 80mpg.

Petrol models are also efficient, with the 1.0-litre Ecoboost providing the lowest wholelife costs in the range.

All versions of the new Focus are fitted with lane-keep assist and pre-collision autonomous emergency braking as standard, providing greater safety and confidence for drivers.

Sporty ST Line models provide a more desirable look without sacrificing efficiency, while Titanium and Vignale trims provide greater luxury.

Strong residuals complete the package, making the Focus the clear winner in this category.

Finalists: Honda Civic, Kia Ceed, Seat Leon, Toyota Prius, Volkswagen Golf

Award sponsored by VisionTrack
