Ford Fo­cus

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Ford’s fourth-gen Fo­cus is set to usher in a re­turn of the dy­namic great­ness that made the orig­i­nal the dar­ling of the UK mo­tor­ing press, when the new com­pact Blue Oval ar­rives in Novem­ber. Equally im­por­tantly in to­day’s ul­tra­com­pet­i­tive small-car land­scape, the all-new Fo­cus brings the model up to date in terms of safety and in­fo­tain­ment tech­nol­ogy. With Ford fifth on the sales charts and with­out a model in the top 20 as we write, the brand needs a sales star, and the Fo­cus (with help from a hith­erto un­seen bril­liant Ford mar­ket­ing cam­paign) could be that car. Led by the lively, charm­ing, ef­fi­cient turbo three­pot ver­sion, the Fo­cus might just have the mea­sure of Corolla, Mazda 3 and i30.
