Ford is now offering its PowerShift automatic transmission on the 1.0-litre EcoBoost derivatives.

The popular Ford Focus range has been bolstered with the addition of four new options for buyers to consider. Ford is offering its automatic transmission on the Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost derivatives in both Ambiente and Trend specification levels for both the hatchback and sedan, bringing the total count of Focus models on offer to 14.

“By making the combination available on sedan and hatchback models, and in both Ambiente and Trend specification levels, these two great technologies are more accessible than ever. The Focus 1.0 EcoBoost Ambiente, in particular, offers exceptional value for money for private, company and fleet buyers alike,” says Tracey Delate, General Marketing Manager, Ford Motor Company Sub-Saharan Africa Region.

Engine Performance

Ford’s 3-cylinder 1.0-litre turbocharged engine offers 92 kW and 170 Nm of torque and achieves a claimed fuel consumption figure of 5.5 l/100km when paired with the automatic transmission. Other fuel saving technology includes auto-start-stop, active grille shutter and a regenerative charging system. It’s also worth mentioning that the Ford Focus 1.0T Trend is currently South Africa’s best compact car in the recent Cars.co.ca Consumer Awards.

If you are after a bit more power from your Focus, you can also consider the 1.5-litre EcoBoost Trend derivative that offers 132 kW and 240 Nm.

In terms of safety, the Focus comes well equipped with four airbags, ABS with EBD, emergency brake assist, electronic stability programme with traction control and hill launch assist. Ford MyKey also allows for personal settings on selected driving and in-car features.

Features

In Ambiente trim, the Ford Focus 1.0T comes fitted with electric windows and mirrors, electric power steering, trip computer with ECO mode, manual air-conditioning and a temperature gauge as standard.  An audio system with six speakers is also included while the 4.2-inch multimedia screen features Ford SYNC with Bluetooth and Voice control. There are also two USB ports for added convenience as well as an auxiliary input.

The Focus 1.0T Trend derivative gains 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, cruise control with speed limiter and all-round electric windows. This derivative also gets curtain airbags, taking the airbag count up to six.

Buyers can opt for a Styling Pack to personalise their Focus Trend model too, and this option includes 17-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, privacy glass, automatic headlamps, adaptive bi-Xenon HID headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights, dual-zone climate control and heated and electrically folding side mirrors
