The all new Ford Focus now available for test drive

All-new Ford Focus is now available for test drive at Roy Chapman Ltd, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

With two exciting bodystyles, the sporty 5-door hatchback and stylish 5-door estate combine dynamic design and an exceptional array of smart new technologies with high levels of craftsmanship, outstanding occupant safety and further advances in acclaimed levels of driving quality.

With over 1.4 million models sold in Britain since its launch in 1998, the Ford Focus has become a favourite with consumers for its outstanding value, comfort and safety, and above all, for being fun to drive.

The all-new Focus also offers customers the highest standards of quality and detailed craftsmanship, outstanding fuel economy, and takes the legendary Focus driving dynamics to a new level.

“We are very excited about introducing the new Ford Focus to our market”, said Justine Chapman, Sales Director. “With its desirable combination of dynamic design, outstanding driver appeal, unmatched levels of technology and impressive fuel economy, we believe that the new car will not only delight our existing customers but also expand the appeal of the Focus brand to a whole new generation of Ford customers.”

The Focus bodystyles share a sporty and dynamic character, marking the next evolution of Ford’s acclaimed kinetic design form language, which has contributed to the growing popularity of the company’s latest small and medium global cars.

The dynamic quality of the exterior is reinforced by the distinctive design of the interior. The new Focus has a modern, cockpit-style interior incorporating Ford’s latest generation Human Machine Interface (HMI) system with twin five-way toggle switches on the steering wheel controlling the two main vehicle displays located in the instrument cluster and high in the centre of the instrument panel.

When it was introduced in 1998, the original Ford Focus brought new levels of agility and responsiveness to the C segment and the next-generation Focus plans to raise the benchmark once more.  An advanced Torque Vectoring Control system fitted as standard enhances cornering stability and agility and Ford engineers have also retuned and enhanced the innovative suspension concepts, developing optimised new designs for the ‘Control Blade’ multilink rear suspension and the semi-isolated front subframe. The chassis design incorporates a completely new Electric Power Assist Steering system.

In addition to the highly efficient petrol and diesel powertrain offering, the new Focus range incorporates other features from the Ford ECOnetic Technologies programme to help minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The Focus is the first Ford model to standardise Auto-Start-Stop technology across a significant part of the range. All vehicles with the 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine and the 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine are equipped with Auto-Start-Stop, with CO2 emissions starting at just 109g/km on the diesel model.
