Fords don't hold their value.

Very economical regardless of 1.6 engine.

Driving

Comfortable driving position. Major problems with interior rattles/noise.

MK6 handles corners well compared to MK5. Relatively good road holding.

Fair.

Image

4 out of 5

Smart looking. Rear end of MK6 is the same as the MK5 with new front styling. Not everyone's cup of tea!

Comfort

1 out of 5

Again, dashboard and rear components suffer from constant excessive "road" noise, even on smooth flat roads. This totally spoils ride. Don’t expect this from an LX model.
