Do you love the Ford Focus Studio 1.6 more than kids love sweets?

Do you love the Ford Focus Studio 1.6 more than kids love sweets? If so, check-out its manufacturer's personal contract purchase plan. Terms include a £2,775.16 deposit, followed by twenty-four monthly payments of £199. Throughout this period, motorists have a sweet tasting mileage allowance of 9,000 per-annum. Any excesses are charged at 7.2 pence per-mile. At the end of the term there are three options. One, pay the £6,252 purchase fee to own the vehicle outright. This – with interest and other charges – totals £13,813.16. Option two is to return the Focus like a bitter penny chew. There should be nothing else to pay, subject to any mileage excess and condition. Option three is to trade- in.

The Ford Focus Studio 1.6 is one of the tastiest cars in its class. Why? Because the handling inspires confidence, it has a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, and a smooth ride to stop sweets bouncing around the cabin. This complements the spacious 316-litre boot, that can be increased to 1,101-litres by folding the rear seats flat. Plenty of room for toffee, then. The only niggle is the equipment specification. This entry-level Focus lacks Bluetooth, an alarm, and climate control. That is a pity, particularly considering high- spec trims are staggeringly equipped. Under certain conditions – after all - some park, steer, and brake automatically. At least the Focus Studio 1.6 has an electronic stability programme for safer cornering, and air-con to stop sweets melting. That is tasty enough for most.
