The All new Ford Focus has received a top award from Diesel Car magazine. On sale since March 2011, the car was crowned best diesel medium-sized car on the market. Diesel car tested the 1.6 and 2.0 litre Ford Focus TDCi models each of which are available in two power outputs.
Ian Robertson, Diesel Car editor, said: "The Ford Focus is quite simply the best handling, most dynamically accomplished car in its class - the one the others have to match. A new benchmark has been set for this size of car, because the bar has been raised by new Focus."
Jon Wellsman, Ford Britain sales director, said: "This is a sizeable market for Ford, with 45 per cent of Focus cars bought being diesels... To receive independent endorsement from Diesel Car is recognition of the UK-based Ford engineers and manufacturing specialists producing these engines."Published 11 May 2011
