Ford Focus owners regularly update to the latest model to capitalise on more innovative Ford technology, uprated performance and efficiency, and the latest styling. These traits and more all help to make the model a class leader in a competitive segment.
The carefully sculpted exterior of the new Focus follows others in the model family with a sporty theme. Swept-back headlamps at the end of a pointed front section merge the smooth wings with the fascia, while dynamic rear lights and a rear spoiler are both functional and visually appealing. A popular family model, the Focus is offered as a five-door hatchback or estate to fit the requirements of more motorists.
The standard interior is spacious, supportive and stylish. All models come fitted with a 60/40 split folding rear seat to offer you a number of seating and storage configurations. The estate can hold as much as 1,516 litres of cargo when only the front seats are upright, while the hatchback carries up to 316 litres in five-seat mode. Adjust your seat and steering wheel to find the most comfortable driving position and relax surrounded by premium materials.
Both the estate and hatchback offer an impressive range of Ford’s petrol and diesel engines. The petrol line-up includes the brand’s award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost unit which has been celebrated for its combination of power and economy.
The 123bhp version uses auto start/stop to power from 0-60mph in under 11 seconds yet at the same time return up to 60.1mpg combined. The 247bhp 2.0-litre EcoBoost is the fastest Focus with a 0-60mph time of 6.5 seconds (6.7 seconds in the estate), while the 1.5-litre Duratorq is the most efficient. It emits 98g/km of CO2 and can return 74.3mpg combined with careful driving.
Underpinning the Focus’ nimble performance is ultimate occupant safety. You are not only surrounded by a super-strong safety shell but are supported by Ford’s Intelligent Protection System (IPS). It features active technology including an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and Torque Vectoring Control to maximise your control in a variety of hazardous situations.
The car’s multimedia technology is just as advanced. The standard infotainment system gains Ford SYNC with voice controls, AppLink smartphone app integration and Emergency Assistance which alerts the emergency services if you are involved in an accident. With an upgrade to the Focus Zetec the 4.2-inch display is swapped for an eight-inch TFT screen to join an audible text messaging function and SD card slot.
