If Ford delivers the Ford Focus Active exactly as we’ve heard from them, then be can boldly conclude that this is one car made with some sense of pride. Here is the thing Ford has built this wagon-style bodied hatchback within very close collaboration with customers.
It is built from the ground up to provide and promises to deliver nothing less than confidence-inspiring, intuitive, and rewarding driving and occupant experience. It is a mid-size family car for the European market and beyond. These are combinations of a car that can significantly shift the tides of the market.
The Ford Focus takes advantage of human emotion to deliver a class-leading exterior styling. The interior gives more space and is enhanced with high-quality materials and craftsmanship.
A sophisticated range of Ford driver assistance including the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) now enhanced with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane-Centring for effortlessly negotiating stop-start traffic are some of the features to enjoy on the Focus. Combine all this with the Active Park Assist 2 (which now also operates gear selection, acceleration, and braking) and you have a vehicle that is competitively placed.
The new machine has 34 mm more ground clearance than the regular Focus hatchback and with this, the Focus can firmly compare to the Subaru Outback and the Subaru XV. The Ford Active draws its energy from a 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo engine used in quite a wide range of Ford brands.
It delivers 134 kW and 240 Nm. It rides on an eight-speed automatic transmission and drives exclusively on the front wheels.
