2012 Focus’ in UK Dealerships

1.6L TDCi turbo-diesel ready for customers.

The 100 mpgUS capable 2012 Ford Focus with the 1.6L TDCi… Can we just drive it once please

Over this past weekend, Ford's 550-strong dealership network welcomed customers to its showrooms to see the blue oval's new star.

Priced from $25,615 including the outrageous UK/Euro taxes, every new Ford Focus comes with voice-activated Bluetooth, USB connectivity, DAB digital radio and a Torque Vectoring Control system which optimizes engine torque distribution between both driven wheels and mimics a limited slip differential.

Frugal new 1.6 TDCi diesel-powered versions of the new Ford Focus deliver over 56 mpgUS, while powertrains featuring Ford's new DI and turbocharged 1.6L EcoBoost engines return more than 39 mpgUS, both on the NEDC.

First launched in 1998, the Ford Focus has been the UK's top-selling car for 10 years. Latest figures show Ford Focus as 2011 best-seller year to date.

Nigel Sharp, Ford Britain Managing Director:
Quote:
"Our new Ford Focus delivers a level of refinement and comfort, combined with hi-tech features and connectivity, not found on a medium volume car. Dealers are ready with enough new Focus stock to keep the car in pole position in the marketplace."
Shipments of the new 2012 Focus Hatch are flowing at a rate of 500 vehicles a day. About 55 percent of UK Focus’ are Zetec series, 25 percent top-end Titanium models and the balance Edge. Estate deliveries will start next month to bring this body style to dealerships by May according to Ford UK.
