Ford Focus Sales Hits 1.5 Million
The Ford Focus sells better than oxygen to astronauts.
The Ford Focus sells better than oxygen to astronauts. As such it is more common than political corruption, more popular than a bank rebate, and more capable than the SAS. No wonder 1.5 million of these small family cars have been produced since 1998 - making it from launch the best selling car in the UK for ten years. Remarkable! The 1.5 millionth – which is a top-end 5-door Titanium X – has been delivered to Jaik Mickleburgh, a cricketer from Essex. Oh yes? Anyone would think Ford sponsor the Essex County Cricket Ground.Jaik Mickleburgh is unsurprisingly thrilled with his car. He said: “I have had four Fords in the four years since passing my test – three of them were the latest Focus models and one Kuga. For the long drives between home, Ford County Ground and away games, the Ford Focus delivers. One feature I like is heated seats which soothe away aches after playing.” The latest Ford Focus is one of the best cars ever conceived by mankind. This is thanks to its extraordinary versatility. There is a family friendly hatchback, after all, and a spacious 1,502-litre estate for load-luggers. Engines come in various forms too, from super-efficient diesels to high performance petrols. The Ford Focus also earned Euro NCAP's maximum five star safety rating, has class-leading handling, bang-up-to-date looks, and staggering gadgets. Some trims steer themselves into parallel parking bays, and brake automatically to avoid low speed collisions. All from £13,995 to £25,645. Enjoy the car, Jaik Mickleburgh.
