Is a used Ford Focus Vignale a good car?
Ford introduced Vignale models to try to capture buyers whose budget stretched somewhere between top-spec mainstream models and low-spec premium examples. The idea was to offer loads of equipment and high quality materials at affordable prices, but lesser-specced Focuses were better value and premium brands still had more badge appeal.
Now on the used market, the high-spec Focus Vignale is slightly better value, having taken that initial depreciation hit, but unless you really want the best Focus possible, you’re generally better off looking at the Titanium trim.
That said, Vignale models still have that desirable Focus trait of being great to drive. And the kit list is genuinely impressive, with heated and cooled seats upholstered in soft leather, fancy materials in the cabin, 18-inch alloy wheels, head-up display and reversing camera.
However, while there are posh materials to be found inside, they don’t always feel as premium as they look, and clash with some cheaper plastics from the regular Ford Focus that make their way to the Vignale. The BMW 1 Series and Volkswagen Golf might be a touch more expensive used, but they’re more convincingly upmarket inside.
What to look for when buying a second hand Ford Focus Vignale
Ford doesn’t have a brilliant reputation for build quality, so check there are no loose interior trim pieces, particularly where the posher materials meet the cheaper plastics.
It’s also worth being aware that Vignale was introduced as a separate model on the Focus in 2018, but was retired in 2021 because of slow sales. It is now the name of the higher-spec versions of existing trims, which don’t have quite the same high level of material use.
There were a few minor teething issues when the latest Focus went on sale in 2018, but these should have been seen to by previous owners of used examples. The same goes for recalls, of which there were plenty, so check these have been completed before buying.
Ford Focus Vignale FAQs
The Focus Vignale gets 18-inch alloy wheels and body-coloured bumpers on the outside, and soft leather upholstery on the inside. Equipment includes a head-up display, reversing camera, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights and Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with sat nav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.
The Ford Focus Vignale was launched in 2018 with the fourth-generation version of the hatchback.
When new, the Focus Vignale was difficult to justify, with its high price tag putting it up against more premium models. However, the used market has been kind to it, as it’s now a bit cheaper than equivalent models such as the used Volkswagen Golf, for example.
If you can see past the fact it doesn’t have a fancy badge on the bonnet, the Focus Vignale is worthy of consideration. It’s fun to drive and has some decent kit, it just lacks of the polish of some more premium cars.
