FORD has announced a new zero road tax version of the Focus, which is claimed to be the first petrol-engined car of its size to squeak below the 100g/km CO2 emissions barrier.

The new models use a specially tweaked version of Ford’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine turning out 100PS to achieve a combined 67.5mpg and 99g/km. Standard versions of the three-cylinder EcoBoost deliver 109g/km (100PS) or 114g/km (125PS) in the Focus.

At the same time, Ford is rejigging the Focus range by offering “Navigator” versions of the main trim levels providing sat nav as standard.

The Zetec Navigator, which starts at £17,555, will be offered for a small premium alongside the standard Zetec model, but the Titanium Navigator and Titanium X Navigator will replace the standard Titanium and Titanium X models respectively.

For high mileage company car drivers the 99g/km petrol still can’t quite beat the most economical diesel in the Focus range, which achieves 88g/km, and the forthcoming Ford Focus Electric should be cleaner still.
