The enhanced Ford Focus now features a fuel efficient EcoBoost Hybrid electrified powertrain and delivers 155PS of power alongside 116 g/km CO2 emissions (WLTP).
In addition, a more premium driver experience is delivered with a new ‘true colour’ 12.3” LCD instrument cluster with improved connectivity and ownership experience enabled by a standard FordPass Connect modem.
The Focus Zetec Edition variant joins the range including he sporty Focus ST-Line Edition, stylish Focus Titanium Edition, SUV-inspired Focus Active Edition and luxurious Focus Vignale Edition. EcoBoost Hybrid powertrains are available across the range.
“Our electrified powertrains are designed not just to save drivers money on fuel, but also to boost the fun-to-drive character of our vehicles,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “The Focus EcoBoost Hybrid seamlessly integrates electric and petrol power for efficiency and performance that would have seemed the stuff of dreams just a few years ago.”
EcoBoost Hybrid Efficiency
The 155PS 1.0 litre EcoBoost Focus delivers more than twice the power density of a 145PS 2.0 litre petrol engine available for Focus just 10 years ago.
Locating the 48-volt battery beneath the front passenger seats has allowed the mild hybrid powertrain to be integrated with no loss of cargo or passenger space for Focus customers.
The intelligent, self-regulating mild-hybrid system continuously monitors how the vehicle is being used to determine when and how intensively to charge the battery for optimal benefit, and when to utilise the stored battery charge.
Easier to Stay Focused and Connected
New technologies including a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and later this year Local Hazard Information make the enhanced Focus easier to drive than ever.
The LCD cluster is fully configurable and uses 24-bit “true colour” technology to generate detailed, high definition images and icons, making them brighter, less tiring on the eyes and easier to read. The cluster also allows drivers to prioritise the information on display according to personal preference.
12.3-inch digital instrument cluster for the Focus EcoBoost Hybrid also features a unique theme and clear graphics to keep the driver informed about their electrical energy usage.
FordPass Connect also allows customers to remotely control a selection of vehicle features from any location via their smartphone and the FordPass app. In addition to helping drivers plan faster, less stressful journeys with Live Traffic updates for the available navigation system, customers can operate Door Lock/Unlock, Remote Start4 for Focus models with eight-speed automatic transmission, Vehicle Locator, and Vehicle Status for checking fuel level, alarm status, tyre pressures, oil life and more.
