Overall verdict

The Ford Focus Active is a Focus that’s been made to look more like an SUV. It also comes as a more practical estate.

The Ford Focus Active is a more rugged version of the standard Focus, aimed at cashing in on the huge interest in SUVs. It’s available as a five-door hatchback or more practical estate, both getting chunkier styling, a slightly raised ride height for better off-road ground clearance and bespoke off-road driving modes to help on slippy surfaces.

You’ll be able to have your Focus Active with Ford’s 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrols, or its four-cylinder 1.5 and 2.0-litre diesels. A six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic will be available.

Two trim levels of Active will be available, starting with standard Active from £21,900. Expect 17-inch alloy wheels, Keyless start and Ford Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system. Then there’s the more luxurious Active X which starts from £24,400 and adds a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, partial leather trim and dual-zone climate control.

Both the hatchback and estate versions of the Ford Focus Active will be identical in terms of interior space, so expect both to seat four adults in comfort and provide competitive boot space versus their hatchback, estate and even SUV alternatives.

We’ve yet to drive the Ford Focus Active, but we’ll be back with driving impressions once we have.

Twenty-five years ago this would have seemed madness, but SUVs are now so popular that manufacturers are turning their standard hatchbacks into them too
