The Focus CC was designed and is assembled for Ford by Italian coachbuilders Pininfarina. This shows in the nice touches which help this car to stand out from the rest of the Focus range. As with most hardtop convertibles derived from a saloon it has a rather swollen and elongated rear but the designers have done a good job of distracting the eye with some impressive styling. None of the engine options are particularly sporting but it’s still a good car to drive, particularly when the roof is up which adds rigidity. The Ford Focus CC is a lot of car for the money. So far only available in Europe despite the pleas of the US market.
The UK list price jumped up in 2009, perhaps to allow dealers to offer impressive looking discounts.
