Ford Focus Hatchback 1.0 EcoBoost 125 ST-Line Navigation 5dr 2 year lease from Yes Lease total of £4,056

Found 21st Jun 2017
Spotted this deal last night and after looking at the higher prices quoted on other leasing sites rang up and ordered first thing this morning.

Ford Focus 1.0 Ecoboost 125 ST-Line Navigation 5 door for £167.46 + 23 payments of £167.46. There is an admin fee of £300 so the total over the two years is £4,319.04.

The deal can work out cheaper if you pay a larger upfront amount.

There are only 15 cars available and the colours available at this price are magnetic (dark grey), deep impact blue, black and white.

Update: Just had a call from Yes Lease, the price has gone down to £156.49 + 23 payments of £156.49. With the admin fee that is a total of £4,055.76.

They are sending me new forms to sign so I get the lower price.

Winter tyres in the UK!!!!

Been driving for over 20 years and never once have I had a need for winter tyres, that is on a variety of front and rear wheel drive cars (including an M135i), we just do not get the weather to require it.


Almost twenty comments and not a single utterance of "Do I get to keep it at the end?" or " I could buy a ten year old Golf for that much!"

Decent deal though but for a wee bit more, I'd be more tempted by the A4 deal.


Without the torque? We just bought a 125 1.0 ecoboost focus for the wife. Took my first drive in it yesterday... Drove through our village at 30mph in 5th, as I left the village I put my foot down and it accelerated with more urge than it had any right to, certainly more than my 2litre 163hp diesel Mondeo would in the same circumstances...

Plenty of torque thanks.

Sounds good to me, a non-expert.
Seems to be a very good price.

While some of these deals are hugely tempting, two things bother me about lease cars:
1. Won't they just come with standard summer tyres? Can you specify all year round all-season tyres like Michelin Cross-Climate do you know? Buying your own winter tyres to fit to steel rims in winter isn't going to make financial sense on a 2 year lease. Having seen the benefit of winter tyres there's no way I'd go back to driving on summer tyres in winter.
2. At the end of the lease, won't they charge you for repair on every minor supermarket parking dent, chips and scratches? Seems to me a professional repair for every minor scratch and imperfection could come to hundreds.
Great price for a Focus

1. It depends on the specific company / deal as to what you can specify, but yes changing the spec may make this deal less attractive.

2. Most leasing companies seem very upfront about their charges and you can normally (and should) check this upfront. As a guideline whatcar.com/car…php

1. They will come with whatever tyres the manufacturer thinks is most suited. So they will be decent. But nothing to stop you buying and fitting a winter set if you wish? You can sell these separately when the lease car goes back.
2. This is regulated and nationally defined what constitutes fair "wear and tear". But, at the end of the day, it isn't your car, if you don't look after it and it gets damaged then you are responsible for putting it right.
this is a great deal!

can also get it with 10000 miles, 3 months up front which works out better for me. details below

I'd have to sadly agree with them. Never changed tyres on my Fiesta (1l EcoBoost/99bhp) and never needed them, always had regular tyres that came with the vehicle.

Do you live in the Antarctic?

Depends where in the UK. You can probably 'manage' ok on summer tyres all year round, but I've run winter tyres for the last couple of winters and even though it's been comparatively mild, I found the winter tyres to be clearly better over the colder months. Not just in terms of traction and grip, but also stopping distances, especially on a wet road.

I have an 09 Zetec S Focus with Sony DAB and much prefer the interior. These new Foci are butt ugly inside. IMHO.
Decent price though.
8000 miles, pah!

Mileage usually kills it for me. Commuting, only do 50 miles a day but rack up 17K in a year.

Same deal available at my local dealer (Vospers). Just showed them, they can match. Not on their website but they will FYI.

​My local dealer can also match this. If anyone like me would prefer to see the metal and speak to someone in person
I've been using winter tyres for the last 4 years. The previous 16 years of driving I never bothered.
I'm more than capable of driving in the cold. However I want to know I have the best hope of avoiding the other morons on the road. Especially the fish tailing RED cocksures. Plenty of people can drive but many also can't.

We used Yes Leasing last year, easy company to deal with although when you phone them it sounds like a noisy family in the background so I have a feeling a small family run business? We went for the Ford Ecosport and wish we hadn't it's an awful car.

What you have to remember with the "deals" is it is often a car that has been slated. The Ford Ecosport had a bad review when released so it had a facelift, as Ford released it they flooded the lease companies with cheap offers.

It's a way to advertise, you see lots on the road and it tempts you, that's the theory. Anyway, between the Ecosport and my Transit van it's persuaded me never again when it comes to Ford.

Unreliable, no cheaper to repair, noisy, tacky, cheap...
Almost twenty comments and not a single utterance of "Do I get to keep it at the end?" or " I could buy a ten year old Golf for that much!"
Amazing the amount of power they can pump out of a 1.0 litre engine these days but without the torque, it's all fur coats and nae knickers I'm afraid.

Decent deal though but for a wee bit more, I'd be more tempted by the A4 deal.

...for people that live within the M25 i most certainly agree with you.

For the rest of us that live in hillier areas like the pennines and scottish highlands, where we actually do get snow in the first quater of the year, they are definitely needed!!

So you are saying the Ford focus has bad reviews and Ford are struggling to sell them so end up leasing them out .Number of units Ford has sold of the focus does not back this up.

Yeah it's all relative I guess. A car is a big spend and £84 a month over the piece for me I would class as a small increase. Appreciate that may not be everyone and if not, there;s nothing wrong with this deal. Like I said it's decent but not for me.

I live in Rural North Yorkshire... I think that counts. Never needed special winter tyres, and I do over 20k a year. Did have one small bump once on a snowy road, but that was because the other guy had literally parked his car on a blind downhill bend, on a single track country road, on the road...
So whilst I do accept they probably DO work better than normal tyres in certain conditions, I don't think the cost is anywhere near justified for the benefit they bring!

Like yourself i do biggish miles. I found it best to buy a year old car outright (or with a loan) rather than lease.

I bought a 2016 Passat TDI SE Nav rather than lease a new car with mileage restrictions.

Transit and Ecosport are hardly the right cars to be basing your judgement on. One is a van, and the other is the worst car Ford has made in recent years (probably due to the fact its made in india).

The Ecosport and Transit offer no comparison to a Focus, its a much better vehicle.

Re "winter tyres" I find it very useful to drive in accordance with the conditions, it always seems to work well and has done for 41 years. I live in the North East and over the years the Council has cut back on road gritting but it doesnt matter, again, if you drive to the conditions and your capabilities.

Glad you're happy with it but no offense but the numbers don't stack up. You're effectively saying that a car rated at 125lb ft of torque and 125hp of power with a 0-60 rating of 12.5sec beats a car with 251Ib ft of torque and 163hp with a 0-60 rating of 8.9 secs?

The only way that would work is if the Focus was loaded with fairy dust.
offence*
OP, I'm not seeing the color options being free? or am I missing something? All I can see is solid being free and the red option?
Lovely cars to drive and brilliant deal.

I've got the Focus RS not quite as good on fuel as this one lol

Thats entirely subjective.
My mondeo was an absolute dog in the snow - any sort of incline and the wheels spun frantically. And no, im not the sort of person who spins the wheels as fast as they can to try and get traction - this was as gentle as possible being really smooth (like you are supposed to).

In the end i bought a pair of snow socks for £25, and this was money well spent. I have driven a car with winter tyres on as well and the grip was almost as good. A set of snow tyres will be more cost effective than an insurance claim, but Snow Socks will serve the purpose just as well.
For those that have matches this at their local ford dealer...
Have you gone for lease as well or is it on the options finance

Just so I'm clear... You are looking at numbers on a page, and you are arguing with me, who owns and drives both?
Numbers never tell the full story. You have to take into account how they are driven. The example I used was a real world example (deliberately) of driving economically, and then requiring some acceleration. And the focus delivers. And does so better at 30mph in fifth than the Mondeo does. Fifth is too low a gear, it's barely 1k rpm, but the smaller, lighter focus is geared to suit it better.
And you've been choosy in your figures too, trying to make your point... The focus can deliver 147ft lb in overboost, and 0-60 is 11.3 secs in the 125 version. Also take into account weight difference, and yes, the REAL world difference between the larger, heavier Mondeo and the smaller lighter focus is far less than you might think.
Of course, you've seen numbers on a page. You probably know more than me who merely owns them both.

You never need winter tyres until you NEED them. It takes one incident for you to wonder why you didn't bother. They grip better below 7c which is most of the time from November until about March for areas like real north yorkshire.

You could drive 20k a year without a seatbelt and no harm would come to you. If we all drove without seatbelts more people would be killed as a result.

Of course, we can make our own choices.

​When I saw the deal I was expecting the deal to just include the standard solid red paint, when Yes Lease rang me back after being approved they asked what colour I wanted as the deal includes metallic paint.
