Not sure if this will go very hot or very cold... but I've just spotted drivethedeal.com selling the current model Focus Zetec TDCi 110 5dr for the bargain price of just £12,591. The list price for this model is currently £20,171 so your saving 37.5%!! This deal is for a UK-Supplied car with a 3-year warranty, not a pre-reg or import like past deals, and can be registered on a 10-reg numberplate next month. We all know Fords traditionaly don't sell for list price, but this is still very cheap as usually you don't get more than 20-25% off a Focus. Its also a non-scrappage deal, you don't need to trade in a old car or anything silly like that to qualify.

This is the latest UK 2010 Zetec model (the most popular one) and the full spec is:

7x16" 5-spoke alloy wheels
ESP/ ABS
Quickclear heated windscreen
Comfort suspension
Perimeter Alarm
Sport-style front seats
Dark headlamp surrounds
Body colour rear spoiler
Driver lumbar adjust
Premium centre console with integrated stowage box and armrest
Electrically-operated and heated door mirrors with side turn indicators and body colour housings
Perimeter Alarm
CFC-free air conditioning
Trip/ fuel computer
Remote audio controls
Sporty instrument cluster design with satin aluminium-finish trim rings
Aluminium-finish interior door handles and handbrake release button
Roof curtain airbags
6000CD
5-speed Manual

This is the widely recomended 1.6 TDCI 110 model, which does 0-60 in 10.9 seconds running onto a top speed of 117mph. Average MPG is 62.7 and this vehicle qualifies for £35 ROAD TAX.

EDIT: It seems its only available at this price if you buy the car on PCP or HP, which lets face it the majority of people do these days. If your buying with cash you would need to either add £1500 to the price, or take out the finance and pay it all off as soon as the vehicle is delivered. Contact drivethedeal for the full info, don't shoot the messenger! Either way this is still cheap for a new focus of this spec, considering the list price is over £20k. Cheers.

List price of £20,171 is joke, not a bad buy at the current price..maybe it's a pre-reg and not the 10 plate for March

I can promise you this is UK-supplied brand new not a pre-reg and can be registered anytime up to 31st March, so would be on a 10-plate.

Not bad at all. I wish I were in a stable job so I could get myself one. I love Focuses, nice solid cars.

Turn the KEY and lost 4k..... Buy the same model with 1,000 on the clock for a fraction of the price. I really do not understand why anyone would want to by a Car brand New for such an over priced Fee.

Your already saving £7500 off the list price. Nearly new models up to 10k/1-year sell for a minimum of £11k.

i got a Ford Focus 1.8 TDCI Titanium pre reg for 11995. It was 'new' with 6 miles on the clock. got my 2.5 year warranty too as it registered 6 months earlier.

got it from Arnold Clark.

From their website:

In calculating our discounted prices, we are using a £1500 bonus provided by Ford on all models, for people who are taking out one of the following finance schemes. If you do not wish to take out this finance with Ford, then please add £1500 to the price we quote you.



Ford are advertising free Bluetooth and Zetec Sport Pack on the Zetec and Zetec S models, however we are giving you additional money off instead. This is included within the discounted prices we quote. If you do wish to buy those items on the Zetec or Zetec S models, then you will need to pay £138 for Bluetooth and £281 for the Zetec Sport Pack.

Auto Express this week (1,102)

"Prices Slashed on Ford Line-Up.....

Rock bottom deals from Ford could save your nearly £7,000 on a new Focus. The firm is adding up to £5,000 of discounts to the scrappage scheme's £2,000 deal on 10 of its most popular models.

The savings apply to the Ka Studio, and Zetec-spec models across the Ford range, except the Kuga. It gets the discounts on its titanium spec. The deal drops the price of a Focus Zetec from £18,280 to £11,495. Cars must be ordered by the 31 March, registered by the 30June, and bought via Ford options"

Me thinks there will be a lot of deals on Ford product this year!

Grossly over priced to start with, it is a Ford, nobody would pay that list price.:x

MK4 out next year. I still think MK1 was the best looking focus they ever made.


Eh, surely the 2011 model will be the MK3?

Would probably be half that after driving home in it.

nice website :S lol

How can a regular 1.6 diesel Ford focus have a list price of £21k? for that sort of money you can get a c class merc or put in a few more grand and get the new E class merc.

some one must buy it new, so others can buy it used, every one cant buy it with 1000 miles on the clock, it would make no sense

A base spec 1.6 Focus is not worth the list they've got there, it's way overpriced.

I will guarantee you if you walk into a Ford dealership they won't charge that much for the same car.
#17
Out of curiosity I have just configured a new 2.5T Mondeo Titanium X with all the toys that are considered a must for top spec cars , it came to :

£36,754 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Retail prices are a complete joke , they should be banned from advertising & lets get more realistic with actual real world ones .
#18
So without scrappage it's £13,495 on the road when financed with Ford Credit, and includes Free Bluetooth with Voice Control and Free Sport Pack.

A much better deal and you can probably negotiate on that ;)

No it wouldn't

The 1.6 TDCI is a sweet engine, for a diesel. I had a rented 1.6 TDCI C-Max and was impressed by the smoothness, torque and general performance. It's not ball of fire granted, but it pays back at the pumps.

Provided you're going to keep this car for a good few years, which is the only sensible reason for investing in a new car, then this is a good deal for a sensible car with proven mechanicals.

Ford dealership network can be a bit patchy, customer service-wise, but they're not alone in that regard.
#21
20 grand for a 1.6 focus(it's like a golf, at a price like a golf) surely i can get a golf at this price! and a gti one at that

I was in Motorpoint shopping for a nearly-new car and in the current market the average difference I saw there between new and nearly-new at this price level was not £4k, that's for sure. Also, there was very little room to haggle while my experience of dealerships selling new is that there is a lot more room to haggle (especially if you're part-exchanging). Because people aren't going for new these days the used car market seems to favour the seller more right now.

Also, with a used car you can't pick what colour or other options you want so you could be paying for extras you don't want or need and/or having to settle for you non-ideal colour. Also, when you come to sell that's two previous owners, not just one so could have a very minor impact on the resell value/desirability.

In the end I bought a 2 year old car with 5k miles on the clock because it was the car I really wanted and a limited edition that can't be bought new any more, but the new price would have been worth it for the additional 2 years warranty and younger plates (for resale).

Also, if no one bought new any more there'd be less second hand cars for the rest of us ;-)
#24
£20k isn't a realistic price as Ford will always discount, but £12.6k for a terrific car is a great bargain. Hot from me. Might be worth popping into your local garage and see if they can match the price.
#25
Nobody seems to have picked up on post 9, about charging an extra £1.5K if you don't take their finance which is no doubt a poor deal, so in reality the car is £14K +, and the headline price is a downright lie.

I've an 08 reg 1.8 petrol Zetec. I bought it new and with the extras it was listed as £18k and I paid £12k. A nice saving but now it's worth between £7k-£8k. So a loss of £2000-£2500 a year.

Not too bad for a new car but there are cars which will lose less. Although you might have to fork out more for them in the first place, so you should also consider your interest payments/charges, when working out which deals are better then others.

Also bear in mind that the New Focus is due out at the end of the year.

Fair Deal I Would Say!:-d

cracking price for one of these but i would say that the quoted mpg is provided that you drive on a flat road, at 50mph all the time. combined comes no where near that in most cases with ford
#30
I got my metallic black 5 door Fiesta Titanium with Bluetooth USB for £12k. I think the list was around £15.5k!

Never pay list price.

Buy a golf at least when you sell it it will still be worth more than 5p


Last car was a VW and while that's true, you pay the premium in the first place!

Swings and roundabouts IMO.

Seats and Skodas are worse as you pay the premium second hand without the VW badge.

What a shame all these car posts get spoiled by uninformed comments like this and worse! Just watch what happens to this thread once the self appointed car 'experts' start throwing in the anti-Ford jibes, etc.

Of course the RRP is unrealistic (true of any car which isn't actually in shortage, so the vast majority) but this remains an attractive deal which will suit many people and is therefore hot. It may be possible to shop around and equal or even beat it but wouldn't a lot of people prefer to just pick up the phone and go for this one without the haggling? Perhaps HUKD buyers are different but many people are afraid of car buying because of the need to haggle (fact from consumer research).

Typical dealer margin on a new car is 15% (part of which is not paid up front) so deals like this are only achieved by rolling together various bonuses for hitting targets, manufacturer clearances, etc. In this case there is obviously a bonus from Ford Credit (Ford's own bank) for signing up a new customer and that has been thrown in too. Look at the deal; if it doesn't suit your personal needs move on but don't knock it out of ignorance.

Can we all have a go at keeping a HUKD car thread relevant and helpful please?

Very true. The Money Supermarket advert capitalises on this!

The majority of people would need the finance, and those that don't can just pay it off straight away and stilll benefit from the £1500 saving.

Far better to pay an extra £5,000 now for a golf which will be worth at least £500 more in 5 years time!
#37
Good deal for a good car.

Ford list prices are very silly, nearly as much as premium manufacturer's. Of course nobody ever pays the list price for a Ford though.

I can never understand all the VW love. If you would rather pay more for something of comparible quality then go ahead. Ford's tend to have better handling and be more reliable than contempory VW's.

VW's (and Mercedes actually) are no where near as reliable as they once were.

The only trouble with ford cars is the rust problem my old focus rusted and it was only 6 years old.

Why are there so many misinformed posts on here. The Zetec is not base spec, the Studio is and then there is the Style and the Zetec after that.

How can you gtee your second sentence?

There is a new model in the pipeline which has a bearing on current prices
