Ford Focus wins 2020 Fleet News Best Lower Medium Car Award

The latest Ford Focus has picked up the Best Lower Medium Car award for the second year running, as rival vehicles failed to take its crown.

Sleek styling complements the car’s agile handling and its spacious interior provides a refined and quiet ride – suited to all driving styles.

The 1.5-litre Ecoblue diesel engine offers low CO2 emissions of 118g/km (WLTP), with the promise of more than 60mpg.

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.

There is also a crossover version, named Active, for those that want a more rugged look and the versatility of raised suspension.

Finalists: Ford Focus, Hyundai Ioniq, Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla, Vauxhall Astra

Highly commended: Toyota Corolla

Award sponsored by: Athlon
