Ford Focus Sport Finance

Brace yourself for a new Ford Focus Sport finance offer.

Brace yourself for a new Ford Focus Sport finance offer. Yes, until June 30th 2011, this capable five-door hatchback could be yours for only £199 per-month. More good news is that this thirty-six month contract's 'representative APR' is precisely 0%. However, wannabe owners still need to raid their piggy banks for the £7,242 deposit. The alternative is to purchase this family favourite outright for £14,406. This includes a pleasing £2,499 discount.

These numbers only apply to the Ford Focus Sport 1.6 5dr mk2. This is the recently replaced model, not the latest mk3 that has more gadgets than Captain Kirk's Starship Enterprise. No need to be put off though. The mk2 is still a fantastic machine that handles better than many newer alternatives. In fact, this 100PS beauty corners magnificently, has pin-sharp steering, a fantastic ride, and slick five-speed manual transmission. I drove one from Dorset to Scotland once and it excelled under all conditions. The Focus mk2 is still an excellent workhorse.

The Ford Focus Sport's standard specification includes its body-coloured rear spoiler, sports-style front seats, quickclear heated windscreen, air-conditioning, front fog lights, and the powerful CD stereo system. Very nice too. Ford also throw-in six good quality speakers for excellent sound quality. The Focus is also easy to live with as it has a spacious boot, five seats, robust built quality, and sensible running costs. What a lot of car for less than £14,500.
