Ford UK announces prices of all-new high-tech focus
Ford's all-new Focus range, priced from £15,995, will introduce an impressive equipment list of high technology smart features to the medium car market when it goes on sale in March 2011.
Standard equipment on all models will include Ford's Torque Vectoring Control technology which debuted on the new Ford C-MAX. This electronic system balances the distribution of engine torque between the driven front wheels to optimise grip and stability irrespective of driving conditions or road surface.
Also included on all new Ford Focus models are digital radio (DAB), Bluetooth and USB connectivity, voice control of key convenience features, Thatcham Category 1 alarm, Ford Easy Fuel (to prevent misfuelling), front, side and curtain airbags, ESP, ABS and Isofix child seat attachments.
Mark Simpson, Ford of Britain marketing director, said: "Ford Focus set the class benchmark for ride and handling at launch in 1998 and the all-new model will set another new standard in the segment – this time for next-generation features and smart technology.
"Ford Focus is firmly established as one of the UK's favourite cars, and this all-new range is set to grow that reputation even further thanks to its sporty exterior styling, advanced technology-laden cabin and rewarding dynamics," he added.
