Mo­tor­ing Ford Fo­cus

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

FORD FO­CUS 1.0 ECOBOOST TI­TA­NIUM BOOT SIZE: 375 ℓ . ECO EL­E­MENT: Fuel ef­fi­ciency from 4,7 ℓ /100km and CO2 out­puts from 107g/km. SAFETY STAND­OUTS: Eva­sive Steer­ing As­sist helps the driver steer around stopped or slower ve­hi­cles to help avoid col­li­sions. When driv­ers are rev­ers­ing, Blind Spot In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem with Cross Traf­fic Alert warns them of ve­hi­cles that may soon be cross­ing be­hind them and ap­plies the brakes if nec­es­sary. PRICE: Still to be re­leased. Ford has just launched what it calls the best car it has ever made. The new Fo­cus only ar­rives in SA early next year, but we headed to France for the in­ter­na­tional launch to ex­pe­ri­ence just how good it is.
