Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very smooth car with great brakes that slow the car down effortlessly. The engine is brilliant, smooth and sounds great. Plenty of torque and a good 0-60 of 7.6 seconds quoted by ford. Only negative about the 182 bhp ecoboost however is that first gear when pulling away seems to be limited and sluggish presumably to protect the gearbox?. Once into second and third it pulls great. The car handles great I've never driven a ford that doesn't.

What's it like to park?
Not too bad however the rear visibility is slightly limited. Turning circle is ok with the 18imch alloys.
