Best Ford Cars to Suit Your Lifestyle

When you start the search for your next car, you may need to weigh up what you need versus what you want.

Budget Car Options

If you are on a tight budget, you may want to consider a quality used car from County Garage Ford. We stock a range of Ford approved used models at affordable prices, all with low mileage. Our used cars are also available with fantastic finance options to help you spread the cost of your next car.

Because we are a certified Ford dealer, we have a wide range of used Ford models from compact hatchbacks to family SUV’s.

For complete peace of mind, all our Ford Approved used cars come with 12 months Ford Assist, 12 Months Warranty, a 75-point Ford Approved check, an up-to-date service and MOT and a full valet.

Our used car selection can be seen online and if you see a car you really like, you can put down a fully refundable £99 deposit to secure the car. This will take the car off sale for a short period of time, giving you chance to come and take a test drive, without anyone purchasing the car in the meantime.

If you have a car you would like to part exchange to offset the value against your new purchase, we would be happy to give you a clear and honest valuation. To get an idea of the value of your current car, use our handy online car valuation tool.

Best Small Family Cars

If you will be regularly travelling with a young family, you want a car that is reliable, practical and of course completely safe.

The Ford range has a range of options if you are looking for a compact family car. The Ford Fiesta is one of Ford’s most popular models, offering both style and practicality.

The Fiesta is packed with safety and driver assist features for complete peace of mind when travelling with young children, from Lane Keeping Assist to Traffic Sign Recognition. The rear view camera allows you to see potential hazards behind you, especially when reversing. The Ford KeyFree feature is particularly popular with families as it allows you to release the door even when your hands are full.

There are plenty of styling options with the Ford Fiesta, from Vignale, which offers additional style and comfort to the ST-Line for those who enjoy performance models.

Best City Cars

You may need a car that will fit into city life but also may need to seamlessly switch between city and rural living.

For daily commuting, you will likely need a compact and economical car, that is both cheap to run but also comfortable enough when sitting in stationary traffic.

The Ford Fiesta is offers the best of both worlds, being compact enough to easily navigate city streets but with plenty of driver assist features for driving further afield, whether to the beach or across country.

If you are making short journeys on your commute, you may want to consider a Hybrid such as the Ford Mondeo Hybrid, which generates electricity for the battery using the petrol engine. You will not utilise your petrol engine in the same way as a conventional engine as your petrol reserves will only kick in once you go over the range of the electric battery, making your journeys as cost effective as possible.

The Ford Mondeo Hybrid also allows you to take weekend adventures and remove the range anxiety associated with plug-in electric vehicles.

Alternatively, if you are just commuting or if you live in the city centre, you want a vehicle that is environmentally friendly, reducing your impact on the environment. The Ford Mustang Mach-E is completely electric, meaning you will need to be able to access a public charge point or have one installed at your home or workplace.
