The Ford Focus, selected as the best Family Car by 17 Scottish Automotive journalists, is available from £13,995 for the five door model and £17,100 for the estate.

In the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers' Car of the Year awards, the all-new Ford Focus has been named Best Family Car.

President of ASMW, John Murdoch, presented the award and said: "In this, Ford's centenary year and our 50th anniversary year, it is with great pleasure that we can jointly celebrate the success of the Focus as winner of one of the toughest categories – best family car.

"As a family car, all-new Focus is unsurpassed for its comfort, space and practicality, not to mention keen pricing and generous levels of equipment. Mix in brilliant drive, refined engines and running costs that are easy on the wallet and our winner is one of the most complete all-round cars you could hope for."

In receiving the award, David Calder, product manager for Ford of Britain said: "We are delighted that all-new Ford Focus has been voted Scotland's best family car and recognised for its sporty styling, refined driving dynamics, low cost of ownership and high-level specification.

"Ford Focus won the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers' inaugural awards in 1998 and for the latest model to pick up another accolade is proof that the new Focus will continue the model's success. We would like to thank Association members for this award and congratulate them on their 50th year anniversary."

The Ford Focus, selected as the best Family Car by 17 Scottish Automotive journalists, is available from £13,995 for the five door model and £17,100 for the estate.
