Even if the recently passed recession comes back with a vengeance and hit auto makers again, Ford is going to be fine all thanks to the popularity of its Focus. The family hatchback continues to be the world’s best–selling vehicle nameplate in 2013, as global sales go up 20 per cent in the first half of this year compared with the same period last year.

Ford Focus has enjoyed a phenomenal success due to its almost perfect combination of style, practicality, economy and driving fun. The recipe for the Focus has been such a hit that when they downsized it and launched the new generation Fiesta, that instantly became a hit as well.

AS mentioned 2013 sees a 20 percent increase in Ford Focus demand, with 589,709 vehicle registrations, thanks to China and other Asian countries. In the UK 47,675 new Ford Focus cars were delivered in the first six months of this year, up 8.7 per cent on the 43,853 cars sold in the first half of 2012.  Ford Focus is the second best-selling car in Britain behind Ford Fiesta.

Combined worldwide registrations of Focus and Fiesta –946,143 cars for the first six months of the year, represent an 8 per cent increase. Ford is the only car maker with two best-selling nameplates.
