The new Ford Focus Estate 1.6 TDCI Titanium has an ego the size of Mars. In fact, the range as a whole is extremely 'pleased' with itself. This is partly the fault of motoring journalists. We test the car, instantly love it, then write glowing reviews guaranteed to swell its head. The problem is we have no choice - there is simply nothing of note to criticise. Its looks, for starters, are stylish and bang up-to-date. The handling is top-class, the ride fantastic, and it has more toys than a millionaire's spoilt child. Standard equipment includes: Bluetooth, MP3 connectivity, climate control, four electric windows, cruise control, and start/stop. It also earned Euro NCAP's maximum five-star safety rating.

But wait, there is more news to make this mile-muncher feel smug. The Ford Focus Estate 1.6 TDCI Titanium has respectable performance and fantastic fuel efficiency. As such, this 115ps beauty hits 62mph in 11.1 seconds and averages 67.3mpg. Emissions are only 109g/km, so it sits in road tax band B/£20. Great news for the environment and your wallet. This six-speed eco-warrior has a large boot too. Capacity is 476-litres, but folding the rear seats flat increase this to 1,502-litres. Oh, there must be something we can criticise – some way to stop its ego taking-over the universe. Okay, the radio's on/off button is 1mm too small. Sounds like a deal breaker. Who thinks it is worth £20,845 now?
