The Ford Focus Estate offers great fuel economy, an engaging drive, and plenty of tech but alternative estates are more practical family cars

Why not test drive the Ford Focus Estate yourself at a dealer near you?

If you’re after a practical and economical estate car that also happens to be fun to drive then the all-new Ford Focus Estate could be just the car you need.

Why? Well, the all-new interior is a vast improvement over what you got in the old model thanks to its modern design and cleaner layout with fewer buttons.

High-spec models use Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with sat nav, voice control, and smartphone mirroring although the eight-inch touchscreen does spoil the lines of the sculpted dashboard slightly. Cheaper models get a smaller 6.5-inch touchscreen that loses the built-in navigation but can still display your phone’s sat nav.

Along with all its up-to-date tech, the Ford Focus Estate can now finally compete with the Golf and the Vauxhall Astra for boot space – the boot capacity is up from 490 litres to a very respectable 608 litres.

The Vignale model gets plenty of wood and leather but it's still a Ford Focus, not a Range Rover.

Passenger space has also been increased too thanks to a longer wheelbase but the tiny 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine remains. Available with 85, 100, or 125hp it won’t be fast but should be good for fuel economy of more than 50mpg.

For wanting to make  even fewer trips to the pumps, there’ll be a super-economical 1.5-litre diesel (available with 95 or 120hp) delivering up to 80mpg.

Whichever version you choose, the Ford Focus Estate should be great to drive – a and bigger engined cars get sophisticated multi-link rear suspension. Lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking are fitted to all models meaning it should be very safe.

So if you want a practical, economical and fun-to-drive family car, the Ford Focus Estate could well be the perfect car for you. Bookmark this page for our full review and video in the coming months.
