The Ford Focus received a comprehensive facelift that managed to really improve its premium appeal in 2015. The face of the car was completely changed, and the new aggressive looking headlamps and the Ford’s new corporate grille that makes it look like a mini Aston Martin and the smart proportions help the Focus stay contemporary.
On the inside, the Focus has started showing its age a bit, and the centre console feels a bit too cluttered in today’s age with simple touch interfaces. The seats are comfortable and offer very good lateral support, however the compact exterior dimensions restrict the space on the inside, and the rear seat space is at a premium. Also, the solidly built interiors do not offer the same luxurious feel as its competition, clearly making the driver’s seat the best place to be, while in the Focus.
The Focus comes with a 1.5L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that has gasoline direct injection, forced induction and is offered in two states of tune, producing a decent 148HP and 240Nm of torque on the lower variants, while the higher variants get the same engine in the higher state of tune, producing 180HP and 240Nm of torque. Both the tunes get the 6-speed AT as standard, and higher state of tune is interestingly, more efficient too with 17.8 km/L against 16.1 km/L of the 148HP tune. The Focus has always been a lovely car to drive, and with the facelifted model, Ford has managed to fine-tune this even further and especially in the Sport variant get even sportier tunes of suspensions, the Focus is a real hoot to drive.
The Focus is available on 4 trims, Ambiente, Trend, Sport and Titanium. The Ambiente variant is available across the 4-door, 5-door and wagon body styles, while the higher trims are available in 4-door or 5-door body styles only. Standard safety features include ABS with EBD & brake assist, dual front and front seat side airbags, ESP, tyre pressure monitoring and ISOFIX anchors for child seat mounting. Additionally Ford has a long list of optional equipment to personalize the Focus to one’s choice.
