The new Focus features a completely restyled and more sculpted exterior with the new face of Ford giving a much stronger road presence. On top of this, the interior has also been refined with a more unified look to maximise driving pleasure. The result is the most advanced Focus we’ve ever made. You’ll start seeing this sophisticated car on the roads later this year.
This next generation model also incorporates a wide range of remarkable new technologies.
The new Focus will be the first vehicle in Europe to offer SYNC 2. Ford’s advanced in-car connectivity system features a high-resolution, 8-inch colour touch screen and advanced voice control for easier access to audio, climate control and compatible mobile phones. This enhanced system also includes the latest in-car navigation technology making your journeys even easier.
The current Focus introduced parallel parking aid Active Park Assist that, at the push of a button, uses ultrasonic sensors to locate parking spaces and steer the vehicle while the driver controls the accelerator and brake. The addition of two new sensors to the rear of the new Focus enables Perpendicular Parking to operate in the same way, helping drivers reverse into spaces alongside other cars.
These sensors help drivers as they manoeuvre out of parking spaces:
Park-Out Assist is also designed to help steer you out of tight spaces in parallel parking: ideal if your car’s been ‘boxed in’ by other vehicles.
When you’re reversing out of a space, 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). It also shows the proximity of that traffic on Park Pilot, the dashboard display at the heart of the system.
This has also been enhanced, helping to prevent collisions and reducing the severity of impacts at speeds now of up to 30 MPH.
We've added a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine options to the multi-award winning, EcoBoost line-up. Both include Auto-Start-Stop, and fuel-economy figures have been further improved across the range.
