Ford Focus up for Motor Trend Car Award

Each year the magazine ‘Motor Trend' gives out an award that see's one motor manufacturer‘s model receive the title of ‘Motor Trend car of the year'. This year the magazine has said that the Ford Focus has been shortlisted and is a solid contender for the title.

The Focus was originally released for the European market and saw production a few years later in North America. The car received praise during its last review by the motoring magazine so it stands a very good chance of winning the annual competition. The awards have taken place since 1949 with the Cadillac Motor Division first winning the title; cars being considered for the competition have to be ‘all-new ‘ and have been on sale for twelve months.
