It is available in six different colours – Frozen White, Panther Black, Ingot Silver, Candy Red, Magnetic and Winning Blue.
The Focus is powered by a four-cylinder 1.5L EcoBoost petrol engine which generates 178hp and 240Nm maximum torque mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
It features several safety innovations including the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Enhanced Active City Stop System, and Enhanced Transitional Stability.
BLIS uses three distinct warnings to alert drivers if the system detects a vehicle approaching either from the left or the right side, up to a range of 40 metres.
In urban driving up of to 50km/h, the Enhanced Active City Stop System can help mitigate low-speed collisions by pre-charging the brakes if the car is approaching a vehicle in front too quickly and reducing engine torque and automatically applying brakes to reduce the impact of a collision if the driver fails to take action.
Meanwhile, the Enhanced Transitional Stability technology actively determines when a car meets the conditions that may lead to a spin and intervenes early to help prevent the driver from losing control; when a risk is identified, brakes are applied to individual wheels in order to help the driver maintain control and continue on the intended path.
With the Ford MyKey, owners can also programme a spare key to reduce the maximum speed of the vehicle, give an earlier low-fuel warning, limit the volume of the in-car entertainment or even disable it completely if the seatbelt is not fastened.
Besides that, it is also equipped with Active Grille Shutters which work to optimise airflow via motorised vanes which rotate to block airflow, resulting in reduced aerodynamic drag by up to six per cent to save fuel.
Other features include keyless entry Push-button Start, six airbags, dual-zone climate control, anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic power-assisted steering (EPAS), torque vectoring control and hill launch assist.
