INTRODUCING THE NEW
FORD FOCUS ST
The Focus experience… enhanced.
DESIGN THAT FURTHER ENHANCES PERFORMANCE
TAKE THE WHEEL,TAKE CHARGE
Racing-style sports suspension
An upgraded suspension includes stiffer bushes on the front lower control arm and rear spring links, plus an all-new anti-roll bar design. This setup lowers the chassis, bringing the centre of gravity closer to the road for more precise cornering.
Effortless maneuvering and cruising
Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to provide easier, lighter steering when you’re parking in a tight spot and firmer steering for more control on motorways.
Change direction: maintain control
The Focus ST incorporates a new technology called Electronic Transitional Stability (part of the advanced three-stage Electronic Stability programme). By sensing vehicle stability and driver inputs, the system can react and respond to help you maintain precision and control when changing lanes, or overtaking.
Turbocharging, twin-independent variable cam timing technology, high-pressure direct fuel injection: the 2.0-litre, 250PS EcoBoost petrol engine utilises them all to deliver (in the 5-door model) a 0-62mph, time of just 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 154 mph (limited). This lightweight aluminium engine is ultra-responsive and exceptionally efficient: providing swift acceleration through the gears and maximum torque available from just 2000 RPM.
The 2.0-litre, 185PS TDCi engine is available in both PowerShift and manual transmissions. The powerful engine can propel your Focus ST 5-door from 0-62 mph in 7.7 seconds (PowerShift) and onward to a top speed of 135 mph (limited). Peak power is developed at 3,500 rpm and 400 Nm of torque is available from 2,000- 2,750 rpm. This torque output enables impressive in-gear acceleration and strong performance at low rpm.
Recharge your battery more efficiently
Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it, and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator.
A wheel that puts everything to hand
A new three-spoke steering wheel has been ergonomically designed specifically for the Ford Focus ST. Every button and control is at your fingertips and the position of the wheel improves both the usability and visibility of your car’s instrument panel.
Start your car with the touch of a button
Now there’s no need to use your key. Simply push the Ford Power Starter Button while holding the clutch down (or brake pedal on an automatic) and the engine fires into life.
Wing mirrors that can protect themselves
To avoid accidental damage, power-foldable mirrors automatically fold inwards when you’re parked. Tucked back, they also protect the stylish integrated indicators.
Coordinated safety systems activate in a split-second
The Focus ST is equipped with an advanced Intelligent Protection System (IPS), which coordinates a number of safety systems to protect both you and your passengers. As well as an impact-absorbing bodyshell, an array of airbags help shield the car’s occupants. The steering column and pedals are also designed to collapse away from the driver, helping to reduce the chance of injury in the event of an accident.
Helps make city driving safer
Accidents in stop-start or slow moving traffic happen all too frequently (particularly in busy city streets). Active City Stop is designed to help you avoid, or reduce the impact of them. If the system detects the car in front slows down unexpectedly, and you’re travelling at a speed of under 30 mph, it automatically applies the brakes.
Ultra-bright, low-energy, bi-xenon headlights
From motorways to city streets, Bi-Xenon Headlamps with Adaptive Lighting change their beam pattern automatically, providing the best illumination for a variety of driving situations. The headlamps also auto-dip when an oncoming vehicle is detected.
