NEW FORD FOCUS
With a completely restyled, more sculpted exterior and a cabin space that's more advanced and sophisticated than ever, this is the most refined Focus yet.
This next generation model incorporates a wide range of remarkable new technologies, too. For example, Ford SYNC 2 with Voice Control and 8" Touchscreen enables you to intuitively operate the car's navigation, entertainment and climate control systems, just by using your voice. And an upgraded Active Park Assist has now been enhanced to take the stress out of both parallel and perpendicular parking.
A range of state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engines deliver the perfect balance of power and fuel-economy. An advanced PowerShift transmission and paddle shift gear changes maximise the performance and efficiency of both.
A car that puts you in control.
Thanks to smart technology and intelligent design, the Focus makes every minute you spend in the car as comfortable, safe, and enjoyable as possible.
Innovative technologies also ensure you're as connected to the road as you are with your music, messages and phone calls on the move.
The latest hands-free technology
Ford SYNC 2 with Vice Control and Touchscreen takes the existing infotainment system a step further with the addition of an optional 8" coloured touchscreen. This high-resolution display gives intuitive control of several key functions including phone, audio, climate control and optional navigation via voice or touch.
Parking made even easier
Active Park Assist technology can help you park hands-free into parallel spaces and make it easier to park into perpendicular spaces (like multi-storey carparks). The technology can detect a space then control the steering as you reverse into it. In addition, Park Out Assist is designed to help steer you out of the tightest of spaces.
Change gears fast, with your fingertips.
Choose an automatic transmission and you'll get the option of performance car-style Automatic Paddle Shift Controls. The paddles are fixed on each side of the steering wheel and with right to change up, left to change down controls you can make rapid gearshifts with your fingertips, even when cornering.
Ford PowerShift. Fast and fuel saving
Combining the convenience of an automatic with the control of a manual, this advanced six-speed gearbox pre-selects the next gear for you so you don't lose power when you change. PowerShift's lightning fast, seamless gear changes make driving smoother while saving fuel and lowering CO2 emissions compared with a normal automatic.
Helping you brake at higher speeds
The Active Braking system is an innovative new safety feature that works when you're traveling at speeds of over 30 mph (on a motorway, for example). The technology uses RADAR to scan the road ahead and if it detects a collision is likely, will warn you. If you don't react, the system pre-fills the brake then starts braking to help slow you down. Below a speed of 30 mph another technology is there to help you: Active City Stop. Combined, these two technologies give you the reassurance of braking assistance through the whole speed range.
Spots the vehicles you might miss
Cross Traffic Alert is an entirely new technology that's now part of the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS). When you're reversing out of a space and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too, (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic).
Technology that sees what you can't see
A Blind Spot Information System can help you change lanes more safely. That's because radar sensors scan the blind spots on either side of your vehicle. And if they detect a vehicle you can't see, the technology alerts you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the corresponding side door mirror.
Bold styling, superb detailing and design features, such as a new grille and streamlined rear lights and rear spoiler combine to make Focus the perfect combination of form and function.
