First drive: Ford Focus Estate

Martyn Collins



With 10,000 new Focus's finding UK homes since its launch in March, Ford has announced the estate version of its small-family favourite. This new version is expected to account for 18% of Focus sales, Ford also claim to have taken 2,000 orders for the estate already.

So with the first owners due to take delivery of their Focus estates shortly, we thought it was a good opportunity to see if the estate was as good to drive as the hatch despite the extra space. So I headed to Goodwood for an early UK drive.
