Athletic Ford Focus enhanced


Earlier this year we heard that the Ford Focus has become the best-selling nameplate in the world. The new generation has been with us since 2011 and has found homes with many South Africans. The local Sport model has now received a few new niceties.

The Sport now comes with front and rear park distance sensors, as well as the option of Active Park, which helps drivers to parallel park by using the above-mentioned sensors to identify if a gap is large enough to park in. The steering wheel is operated by the system while the driver controls the brake and throttle.

Other new features include bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights and full leather seats, with the driver’s side being four-way electrically adjustable. There is also a sports body kit that includes colour-coded side skirts and bumpers along with an ST spoiler at the rear.

The Sport is powered by a 2.0-litre GDi petrol engine that produces 125kW and 200Nm. Claimed fuel consumption is 6.6 litres/100km, which equates to 154g/km of CO2 emissions. The Sport model also has a sports suspension, partial leather sports seats, keyless entry, dual-zone air conditioning and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

The Ford Focus 2.0 GDi Sport sells for R303 700, meaning that the Sport Option Pack adds R13 870 to the price, which also includes a 4-year/120 000km fully comprehensive manufacturer warranty and a 5-year/90 000km service plan.
