Ford-Focus-Mk-2

The Ford Focus family hatchback was the most scrapped car model in 2021, with 29,525 sent to automotive heaven, according to new internal data from the Scrap Car Comparison service.

The Vauxhall Astra was revealed as the second most scrapped model (22,143 cars), with the Vauxhall Corsa following in third (21,717 cars)

With the average age of scrapped vehicles sitting at around 14 years old, it’s easy to see why so many Ford Focus cars are now hitting the scrap heap.

After all, it topped the charts as the most sold car in 2001 and maintained this position through to 2007, so many are likely to be coming to the end of their driveability.

Ford was also the most scrapped car manufacturer of 2021, with more than 76,418 vehicles sent to the scrap heap over the last year.

“Popularity will always have a bearing on which cars are scrapped, and 2021’s results help to spotlight the enduring popularity of the Focus model, even if many do eventually meet the scrap heap.”

The smell of the leather seats, the sound of the throttle, and even light from outside—all affect your state of mind. That’s what makes a good car great.
