Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

This is a really key area with cars like the Focus, and as a result, the margins of difference are pretty slim. When judged on price, efficiency and resale values, the Focus is just about bang on with the Seat Leon, so it should cost roughly the same to own over a typical three-year period.

The Volkswagen Golf is pricier to buy and not as clean as the Ford, but the VW’s superior resale values will even out that difference. And, while neither the Hyundai i30 or Vauxhall Astra are as efficient as the Ford, both cost a little less to buy. However, these differences are by no means deal-breaking, and if you decide on the Focus, you’ll be getting decent value for money, whichever version you buy.
