Focus Mk2.5 Estate vs Fiesta Mk7.5


Recommended Posts

I'm really considering selling my 2015 Fiesta for a Mk2.5 Focus Estate 1.8 Petrol. I miss my old blue Focus that is still my profile picture here.

What's your thoughts about selling a relatively new and reliable Fiesta for an atleast 11 year old Focus. I can think of pros and cons to each car, but mainly I'd be concerned the age of the Focus would be it's downfall, it's why I had to sell my old one.

My heart says Focus but my family and potentially my wallet say to keep the Fiesta...

Looks like we had the same model car previously, I had a 2009 Focus Zetec S in Ocean Blue,
It was 10 years old when I part-ex'd it for my 2015 Focus ST Estate, I loved it too and was sad to see it go.

I took a financial risk to get the ST, but I thought it was also a risk keeping the Zetec S past 10 years old,
The car before that was an Escort and that was getting replaced piece by piece every year lol.

Sounds like a big practical difference between a Focus Estate and a Fiesta, I would ask what you want to do with it.
I could never justify the cost difference between a 2009 Zetec S and a 2015 ST Hatchback, it would mainly be an engine upgrade for £10k,
Getting an ST Estate felt like getting something more useful and practical for the long run, while still being fun (and better looking in my eye).

It seems like you are going backwards if I'm honest, I'm sure a 2015 Fiesta is way nicer than a 2009 Focus, and worth more too.
I would obviously point you to an ST Estate if an Estate is what you're looking at,
I don't think I go through any more fuel than the Zetec S did in mpg terms, but I do put Premium in now which is a few quid more.
