The Focus brings practicality, functionality and value to the table. The engine is a four cylinder 2.4 Liter with 155 hp and 145 lb feet of torque. Mileage is exceptional at around 40mpg on the freeway. The dual overhead camshaft uses direct injection which delivers the exact amount of fuel needed directly into the combustion chamber and thereby eliminating any wasted product. There are even plans in place for a future Focus which will be equipped with the Ecoboost engine. Two transmissions are available; a manual transmission and a dual clutch gearbox. Gas mileage stands at around 40 mpg, which is pretty good. The Focus is the ideal every day car for anyone who wants a practical and efficient car without spending a ton of money.
One remarkable new feature for the 2012 model is torque vectoring control, a system that is usually only found in much more expensive cars. What this system does is improve cornering and handling by distributing and adjusting to each of the wheels as needed. If you want to give your car a one-of-a-kind look you can even opt to decorate it with special tattoos. This is a nifty and fast way to customize your ride and give it some personality. Features for your convenience include a rearview camera, keyless entry and a system to help facilitate parking in narrow spots. Ford’s MyFord system is also available which allows you to easily switch up songs and adjust music volume from the convenience of the steering wheel.
Standard features for the S model includes a radio and compact disc player, climate control and an air filtration system. The Titanium model adds in a sunroof, a premium Sony sound system and Ford MyTouch which allows you to change up the music and perform other functions by giving out voice commands. Standard safety features for all models consist of dual stage front air bags, side curtain bags, 3-point safety belts. For added protection, the safety belts are height-adjustable. A tire pressure monitoring system is in place as well as electronic stability control.
It seems nearly impossible but it appears that Ford Motor Company was able to make the Ford Focus even better. With all of these tweaks and changes the 2012 Focus is sure to be a leader in the affordable small car market for 2012. In addition, mileage is among the best in its class at 40 mpg. Pricing is expected to start around $16,270 for the base model S sedan.
