It sometimes takes a bit of time to gel with a new car. Controls are in different places, there are quirks to the multimedia system you need to get used to – even the seats can feel car deals news
With that in mind, and the world opening up once more, I planned a trip to visit a friend in Wales.
The Focus easily swallowed my mountain bike with the seats down and a change of clothes or two and I headed for the glorious asphalt of the Welsh valleys.
My friend Dan and I fancied a bit of a challenge too, so we decided to climb the highest peaks in south and north Wales on the same day – Pen Y Fan and Snowdon.
There’s around 120 miles or so between the two across the middle of Wales, so not only would we be punishing our calves, but the ST would get a spirited run too.
We started early for the hike up Pen Y Fan and hit the summit before breakfast at 7am. An hour or so later we were back down again and hitting the stunning, winding roads that bisect the country.
The A470 heading north is a glorious stretch that twists and turns across breathtaking countryside.
The ST’s pace and surging torque was a delight. The six-speed gearbox rifles through the ratios with accuracy and there really is nothing like stirring a manual on an engaging road.
