New 2014 Ford Focus Quotes

Performance

Sharp steering, an agile chassis and strong grip make the Ford Focus a responsive drive, whilst excellent body control, complete with a precise gearshift and progressive brakes gives the car the class and feel of BMW. Ford offers 1.6-litre engine petrols ranging from 104bhp to 180bhp and 1.6-litre to 2.0- litre diesels, all between 95bhp and 161bhp. There is also the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo petrol, offering the most economical engine for this car. The Ford Focus comes in Hatchback and Estate models.

Running Costs

For a car with this level of performance, the Focus isn’t too impractical to run boasting an official average fuel economy of 39mpg. Lower emissions across the whole of the Ford range of vehicles also adds to the penny saving. The efficient new engine range can take a lot of credit for this, but it’s also down to a series of weight-saving measures. Despite all of the extra kit and advanced safety features, the third-generation Focus is lighter than ever before, allowing for cheap and more efficient running costs.

Equipment

The Focus comes in 6 different versions. The Studio model features a 1.6-litre petrol engine, the next model up is the Edge which does not offer much more in terms of features but is much more affordable. However the Zetec model includes a digital radio, Bluetooth, USB connection, front sports seats and heated front windscreen and door mirrors, making it much value for money. The Zetec-S offers a sports version – sports seats, pedals and suspension, whilst the Titanium model is more family orientated with cruise control, auto headlights and rear armrest. Driver Assist, Parking Assist and Blind Spot Indicators can also be purchased as optional extras.
