The exterior is great for a Ford, and even a little sporty, because while it does have a bigger back end, it’s still not as large as a regular wagon, so it doesn’t scream “station wagon!”, which could be considered a plus for some people. It still retains that sophistication of the new Focus design as well, which is a good thing.
The interior is not as swanky as the outside, which is a bit of a letdown. The seats are fabric and they feel good on the skin but they look a little budget, which I think brings the rest of the design down. The centre console is clearly set out and everything else is nice and simple, with no fancy extras to confuse you.
There’s a shiny feature panel on the dash, which does help lift the look, and the steering wheel also brings things up a notch - it’s leather and has a flat bottom, which feels really great while driving.
