Superb all-round performance, exceptional new technology and impressive looks all help Ford’s Focus to win over even more admirers. The model is available in both hatchback and estate forms to match your requirements as well as those of families, businesses, and many others.
The current Focus has been restyled through more sculpted body panels and sporty features to boost its attraction. The grille has been revised on the front, and its long shape complements the sweeping headlights.
Dynamic tail lights merge the tailgate with the car’s waistline. A rear spoiler with integrated third brake light has been placed above them for an added touch of functionality. Steel wheels are standard fit on the entry-level Style trim, and all higher grades arrive with alloy wheels that not only look great but also boost the Focus’ stability.
Ford has also made significant changes to the interior of the Focus. Form mixes with function here as quality upholstery and other materials have been crafted to create a more enjoyable driving experience. The symmetrical centre console and instrument cluster are user-friendly, so they don’t cause any distraction and give you all the information you could need when driving. The smaller hatchback can carry as much as 1,262 litres of luggage in two-seat mode, and this swells to 1,516 litres inside the estate.
A combination of power and efficiency are produced by the Focus’ selection of petrol and diesel engines. Among them is the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost powertrain which rewards you with CO2 emissions from only 105g/km. Up to 61.4mpg combined can be returned by the same 99bhp engine. A new 1.5-litre TDCi diesel unit comes in with a sub-100g/km CO2 figure. A strong 2.0-litre Duratorq producing 183bhp is the most powerful engine available, yet even in the estate it returns maximum economy of 67.3mpg combined.
Well-powered engines and reactive handling are enough to keep you entertained at the wheel of the Focus.
The vehicle’s in-car technology makes things even more exciting and engaging for you and all others. On the dashboard is a 4.2-inch colour display which includes the manufacturer’s SYNC infotainment system with voice control and AppLink. The DAB digital tuner offers you access to a generous variety of radio stations. A USB port plus iPod® connectivity are also included as standard, so you can select your preferred source of entertainment. The integrated display grows to eight inches from the Zetec model and features a Bluetooth® function for hands-free telephone calls.
Every mile spent in the Focus is safe as well as satisfying. You are protected at every angle by the carmaker’s leading-edge active technology and the model’s overall robustness. The Electronic Stability Control System (ESC) incorporates Traction Control and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) to maintain maximum control during challenging situations. Hill Start Assist is another technology fitted at no additional cost, and it prevents the Focus from rolling into traffic when pulling away on a slope. Every version of the model includes front, side and curtain airbags alongside ISOFIX child seat mountings.
