New Focus at JIMS

2008-10-30 09:48

The upgraded Ford Focus, on display at the Johannesburg International Motor Show, is a prelude of what’s to come in 2009.

The latest Focus features a fresh, new “kinetic design” exterior, upgraded interior, new features and technologies.

A new body-colour one-piece bumper design for both front and rear bumpers is complimented by a new bonnet design. Fog lamps and bezels have also been added to the front face of the Focus. Si derivatives receive further cosmetic treatment with Sport Body Colour rear bumpers with a self-coloured diffuser area.

The interior design will be enhanced with new door trim and new seat trim material.

New Focus also delivers new levels of technology for connectivity and in-car systems. Any portable audio device can be connected to the car's audio systems either via a conventional 3.5mm jack or now, a new USB port with connectivity module. The latter is particularly significant for users of latest generation Apple iPod players.

Bluetooth ® connectivity and Voice Control are also available.

The Focus range will also be expanded with the addition of a new petrol engine in the form of a 1.8-litre petrol powertrain, which replaces the current 1.6.

Other changes include the addition of two new body colours. The upgraded Ford Focus is expected to arrive in SA in the first quarter of 2009.
