The Ford Motor Company, usually just referred to as ‘Ford’, was founded by Henry Ford over 100 years ago back in June 1903.The American company that has grown massively in that time initially began in a small factory in Detroit, Michigan. Paris was where Ford’s first international sales branch opened in 1908 to begin the journey to becoming the global automotive powerhouse it is today.
The company has had a stake in several other huge names in the automotive industry over the years, such as Land Rover, Aston Martin, Jaguar and Volvo. The iconic Ford logo as we know it today has seen several transformations over the years as well. There have been no less than ten versions of the logo precede the current logo which came about in 2003.
If you go for a drive today, it’s highly unlikely that you won’t see a Ford on the roads, and its testament to the reputation the brand has built as well as the wide variety of models that are on offer for consumers to choose from. Two of the most popular Ford models are the Focus and Fiesta which provide a good all round option, but there really is something for everyone within their range. For example the KA is hugely popular with new drivers for its no nonsense small design and practicality, while for those with a family who take a lot of day trips, the Ford Edge fits the bill! There’s even the likes of the Mustang for those craving a true sporty ride.

Sold as the MPV for those who didn't want one, Ford's C-Max has always been a car that put the fun back into transporting the family. With its great engines, neat looks and excellent dynamics, the C-Max offers fun in a segment where it's often sadly lacking. However, for a segment that should major on practicality, the C-Max isn't as versatile as it could be, but that doesn't stop it from being a desirable family hold-all.
It's the UK's favourite supermini, and for plenty of good reasons; good to drive, plentiful and reliable, the Fiesta has much to commend it. The Fiesta isn't always as well built as you'd like though, with quite a few potential issues waiting to crop up - but track down a good one and you'll love every minute of ownership.
The second-generation Focus didn't create the same stir its predecessor did. Introducing significant improvements was always going to be tough, but Ford pulled it off somehow; the Mk2 Focus was sleeker, better to drive, more reliable and more refined than its predecessor. Thanks to it being the UK's best-selling new car month after month, there are huge numbers available - with an engine, trim and body style for everyone.
Ever since Ford introduced the original Galaxy back in 1995 it has been the UK's best-selling people-carrier. It's not hard to see why; with plenty of standard equipment, a range of great engines and the usual excellent Ford dynamics, the Galaxy is far better than the van-with-windows MPV stereotype suggests. With ample practicality and versatility, a dealer in every town and low purchase prices, it's easy to see the Galaxy's appeal. Spacious and comfortable, the Galaxy Mk2 has notched up one award after another, including gongs for its safety and security. If you need to pull a caravan the Galaxy's size means it also makes a superb tow car, but reliability can be an issue, so check any potential purchase very carefully before committing.
Ford was slow to cash in on the SUV craze. When its Kuga appeared in 2008, some of its rivals were in second or even third-generation form; the Toyota Rav4 that launched the segment arrived in 1996. But the Kuga was worth waiting for because in typical Ford fashion it was one of the best cars in its class to drive, build quality and reliability were decent and you got plenty for your money. In common with most of its rivals the Kuga was designed mainly for road use, but as the safest compact SUV that Euro NCAP had ever tested - and for a host of other reasons, the Kuga makes great sense as a family car.
When the Ford S-Max arrived in 2006 it cut a dash like no other car in its segment. Seen by some as the world's first seven-seater sports car, thanks to its handling prowess, the S-Max was capable enough to secure the 2007 European Car of the Year award. For many, having a family means an end to enjoying driving, but thanks to Ford, you don't have to make such compromises. The S-Max also makes a brilliant tow car when fitted with one of the larger engines; even when you're not towing, some of the smaller units can feel a bit weedy. As an all-round family car however, the S-Max is up there with the best of them, proving that the best things don't always come in small packages.
Ever since the original Fiesta was launched in 1976 the baby Ford has come to define the supermini segment. For decades it's been one of the best-selling cars in the UK, and it's not hard to see why. Fun to drive, brilliant value and cheap to run, it's no wonder the Fiesta is a national institution. Thanks to its popularity there are masses to choose from so you won't have to travel far to find one, and there are lots of variations on the theme to choose from, so whether your focus is on performance or economy there's a Fiesta for you. As an all-rounder, you really can't buy a more accomplished used supermini, while the Fiesta ST is one of the finest hot hatches available.
The Fusion sold badly because buyers didn't get it and neither did the press. It's easy to see why; you could hardly call the Fusion a looker and to make things worse the car was just as bland inside, with a disappointing lack of versatility. However, with most of the Fiesta's good points in evidence along with a higher driving position, the Fusion is not without merit.
If there's one thing that's key to making a small car succeed it's keen pricing - something that Ford has always excelled at. But buyers don't buy Fords just because they're cheap to buy; they're also practical, cheap to run and usually fairly reliable. While the second take on the Ka formula didn't have the cheekiness of the original, when it was launched in 2008 it was good enough to attract plenty of plaudits. Unfortunately, because some of the biggest strides in car design and technology have been in the smallest cars, a lack of development on Ford's part means the Ka now feels dated. But at this end of the market most buyers tend to want good value above all else, and that's something the Ka offers in spades.
The only problem with modern Fords is the low-rent image - the product itself is generally superb. Take the Mondeo for example. It's got loads of space, it's comfortable and it's excellent to drive. Build quality is generally very good, and so too is reliability. There are loads of them about so prices are keen, while it's a smart-looking car too. But less practical German rivals have become the default choice in the segment, proving that sometimes car buyers don't know when they're onto a good thing.
