"The all-new Ford Focus has been a big hit with UK customers looking online and visiting dealerships and our attractive Focus estate completes the line up for them. The new Focus estate's athletic looks gives the car its own unique personality and we believe will broaden its appeal," stated Mark Simpson, Ford Britain marketing director.
