The Ford Focus looks set to have as a good a 2014 as 2013 for sales. Joseph Cann of Motorpaper.co.uk tells us why…
Can you guess what the bestselling car was? Fords latest generation of cars have taken the UK by storm because they offer stylish looks, a dynamic drive, and a healthy list of technology for a price that doesnt break the bank. German car manufacturers such as Volkswagen might have more badge appeal, but that means nothing alongside the value a Ford from Macklin Motors offers.
For 2015, Ford’s number one family hatchback, the Focus, has taken on a new look inside and out and if first impressions mean anything, it has made quite a good one. Inside, the eccentric spaceship like centre console has gone in favour of a more premium and minimalist design, and on the outside Fiesta-inspired headlights and a new chrome grill bring the Focus bang up to date with the rest of the range.
The engine range is expected to remain the same, but Ford is said to have been working on refining each power plant to be more efficient than ever. It is unclear whether Ford will keep the thirsty and boring 1.6-litre engine in basic 2014 cars, but they will definitely be keeping the 1.0-litre and 1.6-litre EcoBoost engines, along with the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre TDCi engines. Excitingly, there are already spy shots of a new 2015 Ford Focus ST, which should use the same 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine as the current ST.
