“Lets Focus On The Zetec...”

published 13/02/2006

Spaceous, Excellent Handling, Low Insurance Group,...

Has the family stigma attached to it which does no...

I apologise now if I get too enthusiastic in describing this car, but I think the details will do it justice. The Ford Focus Zetec is in the higher end of the model range and often comes with uprated extras over the base models. My particular car came with what Ford call the 'Climate Pack'. This...

Nice looks, comfortable ride, good quality

1.6 100ps powerplant too sluggish, too expensive

I rented a car off Hertz for a driving trip through the Lake District over valentines and was furnished with a facelift shape 2009 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec in a beautiful metallic light (Vision) blue. I am a diesel man myself and was a little apprehensive on driving a petrol engine, especially on...

“Popular ford”

published 14/03/2008

very nice car

n/a

Driving this car today for the first time, I must say that it is a very good car. This car has a few extras some which are good and some that you could do without but I will explain that in more detail later on in the review. This car is very popular so the style must be good, as a lot of people...

“Excellent family car”

published 27/12/2006

Comfortable, spaceous, excellent road handling

Every body drives one!

I bought my Ford Focus Zetec as I needed a family 5 door car. The zetec is in the higher end of the model range and often as mine does, comes with uprated extras over the base models. My car came with a 'Climate Pack'. This is a combination of air conditioning, heated front windscreen, heated...

“I actually bought a Ford”

published 27/10/2002

Nice to drive; well thought out

It is still a Ford

I always said I wouldn't touch any Ford with a barge pole. That was until I was looking for a new car recently. For the money I had to spend (around 10,000GBP) it was a question of balancing getting a nearly new car against a couple of years old car which would have had a higher list price when...

Like many people over Christmas, I decided to rent a car for the festive season. I was driving all the way up to Edinburgh from Bedford, which worked out to be 372 miles each way, as well as a few trips here and there. A more economical way of getting there was by either plane or train but we had...

Actually, I would say its better than a BMW. The Focus handles well, it is excellent on fuel, it looks good, the interior is extremely well laid out.... but lets get this opp into some kind of order. Price. I paid £7995 for a 2001 model Focus Zetec. Just to clear one thing up.. Ford's 16 valve...

“A Car Most ordinary”

published 20/04/2008

Standard car for the average driver

sluggish performance, poor economy.

For the latest in a long line of hire cars I was presented with the 5 door, 1.6 ltr hatchback. At first impression it isn't too bad, very ordinary to look at but it's a Ford, so what do you expect? The boot space is adequate, but marred by the awkward lip, which seems to be a Ford hallmark. With...

I will start this review off by saying first I am crap at English so if my spelling or grammar is not very good I can only blame my teachers at school not me because it can not be my fault. The ford focus zetec 1.6i is the best car I have ever had which is only 4 but I have drove a lot of cars in...

it's a Ford, everyone's got one

The Ford Focus is the daddy of all mid-size car handling in its price range. What else can you buy for 10-12K that drives as good as this? 0-60 in around 10 seconds and a top speed of 115 mph so the magazines say, but it's pretty responsive. It's also insurance group 6 to 8, and on these two...

Some may not be to keen on its looks

Having bought myself a second hand Focus last year I think I am finally in a good position to give it a fair review. To be honest I think I had just about settled on a Focus before I stepped into the showroom, having read a fair few reviews and it seemed to be the car that could do no wrong. But...

More spacious than it looks and stylish design

We recently bought this car after trailing round many car salesrooms and test driving almost every possible car within our price range. It's closest 2 contenders on the market at the time were the Vauxhall Astra and the Vauxhall Corsa. Many people might not agree with that but they were main...

“Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec”

published 27/06/2009

A great car from all angles

Not as many extras included as I would have liked

I am now the proud owner of a ford focus 1.6 zetec and for the first time in many years I have actually found a car that pretty muc suits all my needs. I have spent many a time in cars that are too big, too small, not suitable, not comfortable etc but this is everything I could ask for. I own the...

Big luggage compartment, Heated windscreen

Nothing

I bought my Ford Focus in August 2006. After many months of research I opted for the 1.6 zetec climate model. As a young mother with two small children I needed plenty of room in the back and a boot large enough to carry a pushchair as well as the weekly shop, I am happy to say that this car did...
