Say hello to the new Ford Focus. Jam-packed with cutting-edge technology, it’s the most advanced yet – and as usual, it promises plenty of fun behind the wheel.
The new Focus is available as a five-door hatchback and an estate, and both boast a distinctly sporty edge. The contemporary One Ford global design provides a more dynamic look than ever; the restyled profile now features sculpted edges, a chiselled bonnet and a striking trapezoid grille. Plus, you’ve got slimmer headlights providing a sleek finishing touch.
You’ll find a refreshed design in the cabin, too, which has become more refined and relaxed. It’s a decluttered space with ample room for up to five adults to ride in comfort, amid a selection of quality materials. It’s well insulated, too, and that means peace and quiet on board, whether you’re flat out on the motorway or cruising through the city.
It’s kitted out with a suite of smart features, too; in fact, this is the first model in Europe to come with Ford SYNC 2 in-car connectivity as standard. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without the multifunction infotainment system, which allows you to control the air conditioning, Bluetooth, satellite navigation and audio system via an eight-inch colour touchscreen.
Engines and performance
The new Ford Focus comes with a superb choice of petrol and diesel engine options, so you can find the perfect fit for your lifestyle. One option is the new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol option, which achieves up to 50.4mpg. Alternatively, you could go for the smaller 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, which manages an impressive 58.9 on a combined cycle. These engines are known for their excellent fuel efficiency and refusal to compromise on performance.
Fancy going even greener? You’ll be pleased to hear that an all-electric variant of the Focus has now been added to the line-up. This eco-conscious engine lays claim to zero CO2 emissions and enviable fuel economy to boot.
Safety and technology
Safety and security features have also been upgraded, so you’ll have total peace of mind during every journey. The new Focus still holds the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Now it comes with rating Pre-Collision Assist and Active City Stop braking, too, which anticipates potential impacts and responds accordingly. Meanwhile, Active Park Assist has been improved to include Perpendicular Park Assist; it’s designed to help you park in bays and on-street.
In addition, Ford MyKey technology has been introduced to enable owners to programme the car’s settings to individual drivers – simply by using individual keys. For example, you can choose to mute the audio system until all seatbelts are fastened, you can limit the top speed and select the maximum audio volume.
