Proving that refreshing an icon doesn't dilute its spirit, the new Ford Focus ST comes off the back of an impressive global debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a platform usually reserved for multi-million pound hypercars. Contact TC Harrison Ford today for more details on this high-performance model, which is available as an estate or a hatchback and, for the first time, with a Petrol or a Diesel engine.
The new Ford Focus ST features sportier and more aggressive styling than the previous generation, with a lower, wider stance; new dynamically sculpted bonnet; slimmer headlamps and rectangular fog lamps. The sports body kit also includes body‑coloured side skirts and diffuser elements either side of the twin-hexagonal exhaust. A rear roof spoiler optimised for aerodynamic performance, black lamp bezels, ST badging and new 19-inch optional, ST design alloy wheels, all complete the look.
Ford have also released a new colour; Stealth grey, to further complement the existing range of six colours: Race Red, Frozen White, Panther Black, Deep Impact Blue, Tangerine Scream and Moondust Silver.
Ford has redesigned the Focus ST interior for a more intuitive layout that also is simpler, with a clearer visual connection between the key components and significantly fewer buttons in the cabin. An additional bank of three gauges – an ST hallmark – is situated on the instrument binnacle and displays turbocharger boost pressure, oil temperature and oil pressure information.
A new, flat-base sports steering wheel with a soft leather-covered rim; a satin chrome-topped gear lever; and ST pedals deliver the interior that ST drivers expect. Satin chrome door grab handles and illuminated aluminium scuff plates add extra touches of refinement, and sports seats developed jointly by Ford and Recaro provide the support required to fully enjoy the ST driving experience, while remaining comfortable for everyday driving.
The new Focus ST gives customers the chance to add increased fuel efficiency into the ST mix with the unveiling of a 2.0 Duratorq TDCi engine. The new ST diesel engine is the most powerful diesel available in a Focus, delivering 185PS and a peak torque of 400Nm.
For customers who still prefer the petrol ST, the 250PS 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivers a top speed of 154mph, 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds, fuel efficiency of 41.5 mpg and 158 g/km CO2.mountune performance is also available for the new petrol version, so customers looking for even more power need not worry.
The new Focus ST has a 5-star crash rating and is equipped with an advanced Intelligent Protection System to protect you and your passengers. As well as an impact-absorbing bodyshell, there's an array of airbags, plus the steering column and pedals collapse to reduce the chance of injury to the driver in the event of an accident. ABS and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) combine to ensure that braking is more controlled, whilst ESP constantly monitors your vehicle's progress. The new Focus ST also offers Auto-Start-Stop for the first time and other driver assistance, convenience and connectivity technologies, such as Ford SYNC 2, Adaptive Front Lighting, Driver Alert, Forward Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control, Active City Stop and Lane Keeping Aid.
