2012 Ford Focus test drive





Focus, focus on your studies

This is what I used to always hear when I was a kid

Not that I wasn’t a bright kid but it is just that I used to get distracted very easily

The girls who always used to land up in my mommy’s classes intrigued me as much as I ogled at them

Things haven’t changed very much now

Now, I ogle at the girls in my office, so it could well be my boss standing behind me and telling me to focus

This brings me to the point of today’s discussion, the 2012 Ford Focus

I got the chance to test drive the 2012 Ford Focus model recently and here is a test drive report of the same

For 2012, <a title="2011 Ford Explorer review" href="http://usa

html” target=”_self”>Ford hasn’t merely refreshed the car but also ensured that it looks much like a 2012 model

For starters, this car is offered in 4 trim levels

The usual monikers are the S, SE, SEL and finally the Titanium

The base S model gets 15 inch steel wheels whereas all other variants get alloy wheels

The front of this car reveals an Audi type wide grille face with faux air intakes taking up bragging rights for the face of the car

The front fascia gets a black treatment all over

The side profile shows up 18 inch multi spoke alloy wheels which have the same blackened out effect carried over from the front

The head lamps are wrap around ones

The rear end slopes much like a coupe

This would be the only differentiating link between the old and new Focus

The rear shows off a stubby boot with an integrated spoiler and clear lens tail lamps

The build quality somehow, towards the rear showed a dip with the uneven panel gaps

The split tail lamps looked cool on the

red specimen that I had for test

By the way, I had the sedan version of the 2012 Ford Focus

As we all know, there is a hatch version also offered

The lower bumper is covered by a meshed plastic material

Cut to the interiors now

The Titanium version that I had was the loaded to gills variant

It boasted of auto wipers, leather upholstery, driver’s power seat with 6 memory functions, automated parking system as also rear view camera

A plethora of buttons on the central stack is what one would notice once you enter the cabin of the 2012 Ford Focus

The contrast stitching for leather seats is one hell of a thing and certainly deserves praises

Between the speedometer and the tachometer, there is a small information display which while being easy to read, could have been better

This screen can be programmed to display average speed, fuel economy and many more

The best part is that all this information can be toggled via switches on the steering wheel itself

The 4 spoke steering wheel feels a bit in your face but once you hold it, it feels very much at home

Seats in the Ford Focus were never a problem both in the front and rear and the 2012 model just shows it off

It gets a 13

2 cubic foot trunk capacity

I am been informed that the hatchback variant brings in 23

8 cubic feet of boot space and about 44

8 cubic feet with the rear seats down

The 2012 Ford Focus is offered only with one engine option as of now

This is a new engine for the year 2012 and a very effective one as I can tell from the test drive

This 2

0 liter engine with 4 cylinders brings in 160 Hp of power and 146 pound feet of torque into the equation

It gets a 5 speed manual transmission or a 6 speed dual clutch automatic

The one that I had with me was the auto variant

Like all Ford engines, this gasoline engine was also utter silent at low speeds but then stretch it on the highway and it lets out a growl which feels like it had something hidden up its sleeves

The shift quality is also very smooth and un-intrusive

The 0-60 mph timing was clocked at 8

5 seconds and top speed is expected to be around the 125 mph mark

EPA figures are still a guess as the vehicle hasn’t finished testing yet but then knowing Ford’s obsession with economy on the Ford Focus, expect the city figures to be around the 30 mpg mark whereas the highway figure would

read as somewhere close to 40 mpg

The top of the line Titanium variant comes loaded with rear discs, ABS, EBD, stability control, 6 air bags and 911 dialing compatible system in the event of a crash

Brake modulation was encouraging to say the least

The ride quality was a disappointment however the handling was perfect

The well weighted steering wheel promises to deliver driving pleasure to the hilt with the new Ford Focus

I am sure that the hatchback variant will have a more sorted ride quality

The 2012 Ford Focus promises more for less

It has got the space, pace, looks, equipment and finally fuel efficiency to boot for

It has a hatchback variant and also sedan form to contend with

Mazda 3 would definitely have some competition to look forward to now

The 2012 Ford Focus price would start from $ 16,243 and will end at $ 23,214

Looking forward to its launch? I definitely am
