Video road test: Ford Focus 1.6 Ecoboost 150 Titanium

Martyn Collins

We're big fans of the new Focus here at Autoblog UK. So when Ford offered us the chance to spend a week with a 1.6-litre 150bhp Titanium version, we jumped at the chance to spend an extended period of time with the new small family favourite.

It turned out to be the perfect week to try the new Vauxhall Astra and Volkswagen Golf rival, as the longest drive we had in the car was a 340 mile round trip to meet another of its rivals - the Peugeot 308 at the UK press launch in Cardiff.
