Competition Reg Hardware and Ford have teamed up to bring three lucky readers the chance to take part in a week-long test drive of the 2011 Ford Focus.

The new Ford Focus is the technology-packed family car we judged to be "possibly the most complete C-Class hatchback on the market, and certainly the most hi-tech" in our review.

The Ford Focus puts more technology into the driver's hands than ever before. Active Park Assist can get the Ford Focus into a gap only 20 per cent longer than the car itself.

On the road, the Ford Focus will ensure you stay in lane, track traffic signs for you, even brake for you to prevent low-speed impacts.

Check out Reg Hardware's review for all the details.

In fact, with its 360° sensor array, the new Ford Focus probably has a clearer understanding about what’s going on around it at any given moment than many drivers have. It's like having an intelligent co-pilot on board.

But don't take our word for it - why not try all these features out for yourself? Correctly answer the questions below, and you could win a week's test drive - and become a Reg Hardware journalist, telling us and your fellow readers how much you enjoyed using the Ford Focus.
