Is, without doubt, one of the best kept secrets of the last few months. Renovated this year, the Volkswagen Golf, Honda Civic or Hyundai i30, and only two years ago the Opel Astra, Renault Megane and Seat Leon… what happens with the Ford Focus? It just so happens that is in the last phase of a development that the trade mark has been, and continues to be, in absolute mystery. Mystery that today we are going to try to go beyond.
And it is that, despite the fact that in recent months, we have already seen units rolling around with camo (even muletos of evidence by the south of Spain), since Ford remains the “top secret”. Today, our illustrator Schulte reveals the first image how will be the new Focus, a compact that debut at the end of the year that comes that will be already the fourth generation. The current, third, came in 2010 and was redesigned in 2014. So he already played… and more when the current Ford Focus, one of the cars ever sold in our market, has already disappeared from the list of the 10 best-selling. Will…
And will, for sure, because your new generation promises major improvements to put the Ford Focus again on the forefront of the category. Even though you have not transcended time a lot of data, everything indicates that the new Focus premiere platform. With it will be able to offer the latest in technology, more versions ecological and a structure more lightweight. From Germany to ensure that reduced, at least, 50 kg weight.
Ford Focus 2018: bigger and more dynamic
however, with some good dimensions that will further separate as the Hyundai i30 or Opel Astra (both rubbing 4,37 meters), the new Focus will also offer a more battle, and width of pathways to stand as one of the models most spacious and livable in its segment.
More space and better design, but the same sporting spirit of always. Ford will not give up in their new Focus 2018 to continue offering one of the compact of behavior is more direct and alive. All available information point today to premiere of the one direction “steer by wire”, that is to say without physical connection between steering wheel and front axle, which varies the vehicle as a function of speed and becomes very direct in situations of a demanding sport activity. Next to the greater lightness of insurance that offer you great sensations.
Mechanically, new Ford Focus in 2018 will incorporate the most modern engines of the brand, betting more than ever to a range of petrol Ecoboost that so good results has given the company… and the one that everyone imitated. Your bdo 1.0 Ecoboost will be the supply center, along the Diesel 1.5 TDCi. The fork that goes from 115 to 150 HP should accumulate the greater demand of the compact. And attention, of course, the new engine 1.5 Ecoboost also a 3 cylinder engine with 200 HP and disconnection partial cylinder. One of the jewels of the already presumed to be for the coming year Ford.
above should also continue to exist versions ST and RS abanderen his sportsmanship. In terms of transmissions will have option of manual switching and automatic, where the Powershift dual-clutch should continue to be on the scene… although do not rule out new boxes with more gears (do 8? Do 9?) seeing, for example, that Peugeot already presented in its new 308 a 8-speed torque converter, that firm Aisin.
however, are not lacking, of course, in the new Ford Focus variants with new propulsion systems. In the absence of official confirmation, there will be a perfected Focus 100% electric and should also appear hybrid versions plug-in with a good range of autonomy and zero emissions.
In terms of equipment, the new Ford Focus will feature all of systems connectivity and infotainment are now available, including the latest generation of the system SYNC 3, with a central display’s touch should exceed 8 inches maximum from the Party. The compact also will mark also the start of the company in driving autonomous. Much system of driving assistance and safety across the that will become, for sure, in one of the compact most interesting market. Already lack little, to know it completely.
