Ford Focus Zetec Navigator 1.0-litre EcoBoost 100PS Finance
Shall we count 'em? The Ford Focus Zetec Navigator is available via “two” finance offers. Terms for the Personal Lease – that we will count as Offer One – include the £4,389 advance rental that is followed by thirty-five monthly instalments of £209. This totals £11,704 after which the car must be returned. There is then nothing else to pay subject to two terms. Shall we count those too? Number one, it must not have exceeded nine-thousand miles per-year and – number two – it must be in reasonable condition for its age. And that brings us to Finance Offer Two. Terms for this Personal Contract Plan include the £4,297.08 deposit that precedes a first monthly payment of £219. This includes the £10 finance facility fee and is followed by twenty-three instalments of £209. The total is £9,323.08. At the end of the term there are three options to count: One, pay the £7,950 final payment to own the vehicle outright. This totals £17,283.08 including the £10 purchase fee and £853.08 interest. Two, return it whereby there is nothing else to pay subject to mileage and condition. And three, settle the final payment then part exchange via a new Personal Contract Plan. If the car is then worth more than its final payment any difference pays towards the replacement's deposit. What a lot of counting.
Ford Focus Zetec Navigator 1.0-litre EcoBoost 100PS Review
The Ford Focus Zetec has class leading handling a motorist can count on. As such it corners confidently, has perfectly weighted steering, lots of traction and a supportive ride. This small family class vehicle performs far beyond its price tag. Power comes from a 1.0-litre petrol engine that - although small for the class - produces 100PS and propels motorists to 62mph in 12.5 seconds. Not fast, but respectable considering it averages 60.1mpg. This workhorse also feels nicely screwed together, has a pleasing equipment specification and attractive styling. It is safe too. Euro NCAP therefore awarded it the maximum five star rating. This incorporates scores of ninety-two percent for adult occupant protection, eighty-two percent for children, seventy-two percent for pedestrians and seventy-one percent for safety assist features such as its electronic stability program. But there is one negative that counts against this car. Cargo capacity is only 316-litres which is far less than rivals such as the VW Golf (380-litres) and the Vauxhall Astra (351-litres). But never mind. Count up the pros and they out way the cons.
