Sarah Dopson, AA’s Head of Group Fleet, said the Focus would make the “perfect stablemate” for the Fiesta.
“Not only is the new Ford Focus attractive to us in terms of its cost-effectiveness, but it is also ideal as a car for tuition purposes and learners are attracted to the AA Driving School as a result,” she said.
Ian Watson, Ford’s direct sales manager, believes the new Focus has the ability to impress just as much as the Fiesta.
“The car in which you learn to drive leaves a lasting impression on you and Ford is of course delighted to have been associated with the AA Driving School on an exclusive basis for many years,” he commented.
“We’re sure that the new Ford Focus will prove every bit as popular with students as the Ford Fiesta and the previous Focus.”
Ford’s exclusive supply deal with AA Driving School goes back to 1998. The British manufacturer is currently in a three-year deal with AA to provide over 8,000 cars.
