Focus Euro IV versus Focus

Hi New to this group and the focus for that matter.
Thinking of the Focus as my next company car, ive been looking at the "What Car" & "Top Gear websites which are pretty informative which is
more than i can say for the Ford uk website which i found confusing.
Question Whats the difference between the Euro IV model and basic Focus apart from it costs a bit more to buy new but the car tax is a little less (Euro IV that is).
As there are a lot of models out there which gives the best value for money.All i know at the moment is ill want Diesel/Estate/Manual/1600/
All the best 0mic

Welcome
Not a surprise The Ford website is far from clear and concentrates on silly flash bits rather than actual information

Euro IV is I presume refering to the new model which is somewhat more fuel efficient hence the lower CC Tax

Didn't even know they did a 1.6 Diesel the old Focus had 1.8 TDDi and TDCi engines with Power outputs ranging from90ps to 115ps the new Focus has a 2.0l diesel rated at 130ps as I understand it
As for best value under a CC scheme that will really depend on how the scheme works and what your allowance but I found with my current scheme that the Ghia spec worked out well as the resale value was higher than say the Zetec models but as I said this does depend on how your scheme works.

Euro IV is simpy the emissions level. It is currently the cleanest (most stringent) standard and gives some tax breaks in Germany at least. I think the next round of emissions standards will require particle filters on all diesels.
