Cheap Ford deals

1. B-Max

Our pick Ford B-Max 1.4 Zetec
Used deals Limited stock

Although the Ford B-Max is no longer available from Ford as a new car, it's still a hugely affordable family car as a used option. Its headline feature is its sliding rear doors, and the lack of a central pillar on each side means that the entire car opens up if you have all four doors open. This makes it extremely easy for passengers in the back to get out, all in a car that's only 37mm longer than a Ford Fiesta.

For all this extra convenience, the fact the B-Max is based on a small car is does show when your see how much space there is inside. While there's plenty of headroom compared to the Fiesta (the B-Max is 128mm taller), taller passengers might feel the squeeze on their legs, while the 318-litre boot is much smaller than what's available in rivals such as the Citroen C3 Picasso.


2. Ford Fiesta

Our pick Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost Zetec
Used deals from £4,990
Monthly finance from £0*

The Ford Fiesta has long been one of the most popular cars in the UK. It's small, reliable, practical and fun to drive. For the cheapest deals, we're looking here at the previous-generation model that was on sale from 2008-2017, so while it won't have the latest tech on-board, there's still plenty to enjoy about this car.

As a small hatchback, there's enough space for a small family of four, although taller passengers might feel the squeeze in the rear seats. Boot space is reasonable compared to its rivals, too, although 290-litres is unlikely to be enough to store luggage for any lengthy trips.

The Fiesta's party piece it its small but excitable 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. Although actual performance is hardly anything to write home about, it's economical, and drivers will at least be able to enjoy pushing hard on the throttle and reaching for the rev limiter.


3. Ford Focus

Our pick Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 125 Zetec
Used deals from £5,395
Monthly finance from £0*

Much like the Fiesta, the Ford Focus has been a hugely popular family car for the majority of its life. This is certainly true of the version we're looking at here that was on sale from 2011-2018. It's bigger than the Fiesta in all directions, so the Focus is a better option if you're in need of more space. Boot space grows to 316 litres, while rear seated passengers will be treated more leg room.

The best part about this generation of the Focus is that it's now available for less than £7,000 as a used car, and there aren't many cars of this size and quality you can buy for this kind of price - this might be the best cheap used car you buy at all, let alone the best cheap Ford.

Despite its age, the Focus still looks modern from the outside, and there's plenty of tech on offer inside, too. Zetec models feature air-conditioning, digital radio, and a heated windscreen. There's even a touchscreen media system, although it feels its age compared to newer models.


4. Ford Ka+

Our pick Ford Ka+1.2 Zetec
Used deals Limited stock

For a long time, the smallest model Ford made was the Ford Ka, but that was replaced in 2017 by the refreshed and bulkier Ford Ka+. It's still small, measuring 117mm shorter than the current Fiesta, and this makes it ideal for drivers spending more time navigating narrow city streets.

It's the small size of the Ka+ that's the main selling point here, but there are many smaller options available if you're keen for something that's easy to park. But what helps this stand out over the likes of the Fiat 500 and Skoda Citigo is the ready availability of five doors, and a much larger 270-litre boot.

Because the Ka+ is newer than the other options on this list, the interior feels more modern with a 4.2-inch media display mounted on the dashboard, while other Zetec trim features include air-conditioning, cruise control and a digital radio.
