Twenty years ago, the Focus was a turning point for Ford. It was another family hatchback, but one endowed with a chassis and suspension that meant it was actually fun to drive. Not the kind of fun you can only have on a track, but fun just heading to Waitrose.
Some of us remember the old MG ZS, a rebadged Rover 400 with a go-faster spoiler and flash wheels. This is not the replacement to that model, and the current owners of MG would probably rather we forgot all about the 90s entirely.
