Introducing the Ford Focus Active X – A ‘Crossunder’?

Ford Focus Active X Crossover

When the original Ford Focus was released, it was a game changer. It almost instantly became the benchmark against which all other cars in the sector were judged – We’re often asked by our car hire customers for a ‘Focus sized car’ for instance. Fast forward to today and a few iterations later, the mighty Focus is still amongst the most popular cars on the road and deservedly so.

In today’s competitive car market, SUV’s are incredibly popular and the market for ‘Crossover’ vehicles – production cars which have been given a higher ride and gruffer styling to give an SUV ‘look’ has been a direction many manufacturers have headed down. So have Ford finally done the same with the Focus to create the Ford Focus Active X? Well, almost!


What’s Special About The Ford Focus Active X?

The Ford Focus Active X is certainly a little taller than the standard Focus and it has extra cladding round the wheel-arches as well as having more rugged styling, but it’s not ‘quite’ a crossover and this is a good thing!

One of the best things about the Ford Focus and what’s made it such a popular car in all its guises is its incredible driving dynamics. It’s responsive, precise through the corners and gives exactly the right amount of feedback through the controls and steering wheel.

When a standard car becomes a crossover, driving dynamics and some of the fuel economy are often sacrificed to give that commanding driving position and ride height. Crossover sales tell us that this is a trade-off many are willing to accept, however, Ford have played a blinder with the Focus Active X, by appealing to the those who want a little extra ground clearance and a little SUV styling but still want an engaging drive. It’s chunkier than the regular Focus, but not quite a Crossover….. we’re calling it a ‘Crossunder’ until the motoring industry either chooses a better name or adopts ours…… you read it here first!

Horse Box Hire

My 1st time hiring the 3.5 tonne horse box this weekend and the box itself was brand new top spec, lovely to drive and very spacious for me and my horse and all his belongings. The box has a camera which gives you lots of reassurance that your horse is safe and allows you to have a calm drive transporting your horse. The staff at Westwood were very professional and friendly from start to finish with nothing being any trouble. We made use of the living area; fridge, gas stove and bunk beds which were also another great benefit. Very well priced for the high standard of customer service and the vehicle itself. I will definitely be hiring from here again. We loved travelling in style. Kirsty

This company speedily got me into a new van following my old one being beyond repair. The sales team was great knowing i needed to be back in work & couldn’t have more than one day off. This resulted in me having a new van on the road within 5 hours of choosing one off their forecourt. Cannot fault their service & will definitely be using them again.
