Ford Focus is named 2019 NZ Car of the year!

We are proud to announce the all-new Ford Focus has won the prestigeous AA Driven New Zealand Car of the Year award!


“What a fantastic result, especially considering the very high calibre of finalists,” said Ford New Zealand Managing Director Simon Rutherford.


“This award is especially good recognition considering the judging panel and thorough testing regime all the vehicles are put through. We’ve already sent a big thank you to our engineers in Germany who designed and built the new Focus. They’ve managed to create a magic combination of style, technology and capability - all in an incredible value for money package.”


In testing the finalists, each car was put through a series of back-to-back tests at Pukekohe Park. Other finalists conisted of the Toyota GR Supra, Renault Megane R.S, Peugeot 508, BMW 3 Series, Tesla Model 3, Jaguar I-Pace, Holden Acadia, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda 3.
