After the successful update of the Ford Fiesta that we saw a few weeks ago, today the brand with the blue oval has shown us the restyling of the Ford Focus.
As you can see, this acara wash, or mid-life update affects the entire brand, from the family body to the five-door, logically going through each of the finishes, including the Ford Focus ST.
The refreshed Ford Focus arrives with many revisions inside and out. All models have LED headlights as standard and in addition these have been redesigned with integrated fog lights. As you can see, the model is much more sober and elegant and we understand that the change of the headlights will offer us a greater light output, something that the model was somewhat short of.
In a totally optional way, buyers will be able to opt for some upgraded LED headlights which will include a central camera that will offer automatic high-beam lighting system with anti-glare function. Overhead lighting also uses the camera to read the road and illuminate the inside of a curve. The grille has also been modified along with other elements.
When it comes to the taillights, both the hatchback and wagon now have darkened lights. As an option, customers can choose new LED taillights with a differentiated light shape.
As with the small Ford Fiesta, the brand has also revamped and restructured the Focus trim levels, including the Focus ST and Focus Active.
In addition to the aforementioned, the model has a new offer of alloy wheels and a new color palette Among which stands out the Mean Green paint that the model has borrowed from the Puma ST.
Already inside an important change has been made and that is that the SYNC 4 infotainment system now features a substantially larger touchscreen of nothing less than 13.2 inch.
The system will feature wireless updates, as well as wireless integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The larger screen has allowed the brand to remove the physical controls that we found in the passenger compartment, specifically those of the climate control.
Regarding the engines, the normal Ford Focus have a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol unit available in versions of 125 hp and 155 hp associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a new automatic transmission. seven speeds and double clutch.
The EcoBoost mechanics take advantage of 48-volt mild hybrid technology to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and the acquisition of the ECO sticker.
If you don’t want to keep technology in mind Mild hybridBoth engines can be purchased with 100 hp or 125 hp respectively, both associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Ford keeps diesel alive thanks to a 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBlue engine that can be chosen with outputs of 95PS and 120PS. Both configurations are powered by a six-speed manual transmission as standard, although an 8-speed automatic is available.
There are no mechanical changes in the Focus ST, which continues to have the same turbocharged 2.3-liter, 280-hp EcoBoost mechanics. We have perceived the absence of the diesel mechanics of the Ford Focus ST, which seems that the brand has deleted from the offer.
