Delivering head-turning style, advanced connectivity, and an electrified powertrain, the Ford Focus takes family motoring to the next level. And with no fewer than eight trim levels to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect edition to suit your lifestyle, from the feisty ST to the rugged Active. Choose a Vignale variant to add in an extra element of luxury, elevating your drive even further.
From first glance it’s clear that the Ford Focus is a step up from previous editions. The headlights have taken on a more slender appearance, giving a greater sense of purpose to the model, while a more prominent air intake emphasises its lively performance. The Blue Oval badge now sits proudly on the radiator grille, and at the rear, a darkened lighting effect and ‘loop light’ pattern ensure the Focus stands out at night. Unique features adorn each variant, with individual grille and alloy wheel designs helping to set them apart from their siblings.
Step inside and you’ll find a cleaner, more sophisticated cabin, with fewer buttons and switches. Instead, the majority of functions are controlled via the vehicle’s high-definition touchscreen, which is intuitive to use, or with the voice command system, which features advanced natural language recognition. Whether you choose the hatchback or estate, you’ll enjoy the same comfortable drive thanks to high-quality materials and finishes, and generous space for both passengers and luggage.
The Ford Focus may look sleeker and provide a more dynamic drive than its predecessors, but when it comes to safety, the same high standards have been met. Systems such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and Pre-Collision Assist work actively to reduce the severity of accidents, should they occur, while passive features such as ISOFIX anchor points provide peace of mind when travelling with children.
Behind the wheel, you can expect the spirited, responsive drive for which the Focus is renowned. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid option, which incorporates mild-hybrid technology, is now available with seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission, precision engineered to provide greater efficiency and seamless shifts. Taking emissions to less than 106g/km and providing fuel economy of over 60mpg, it ensures your journeys are cleaner without compromising on performance.
Other options include the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol unit, which has an output of 123bhp and delivers energetic performance both in town and on the motorway, as well as the 1.5-litre diesel variant, which offers impressive fuel economy over long distances. Whichever engine you prefer, you’ll enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride and exceptional agility. ST drivers will benefit from even more punch and razor-sharp responses thanks to the precision tuning of the model’s engine.
The Ford Focus range has now introduced Ford SYNC 4, which creates an advanced and immersive experience wherever you go. The system includes a 13.2-inch touchscreen, cloud-connected navigation, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay integration, meaning that finding your next destination, streaming your music, and accessing smartphone apps is effortless. Meanwhile, the FordPass Connect modem enables you to connect up to ten devices to the WiFi hotspot, as well as check in on your vehicle remotely using the FordPass app.
