    Ford Focus Sedan Overview

    Based on Ford’s global C-car platform, the third generation Ford Focus would be the first global vehicle designed under the ‘One Ford’ strategy which aimed to leverage Ford's global resources into creating a single common model that could be sold globally to achieve greater economies of scale.

    The facelifted third generation model made its Malaysian debut back in 2016 with 3 variants on offer, both in the hatchback and sedan form. All three variants are powered by a new 1.5 L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, replacing the outgoing 2.0 L naturally aspirated Duratec mill.

    Sporting Ford’s global design language featuring an Aston Martin-esque trapezoidal grille, the Ford Focus 1.5 L EcoBoost Sedan is offered in the sole Titanium+ trim. It is fully imported in CBU form from Thailand with launch price starting from RM 139,888, the same price for the hatchback variant in the Sport+ trim. Rival to the Ford Focus sedan include the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Jetta and the Mazda 3 Sedan.

  • Exterior

    Ford Focus Sedan Design

    The facelifted version features a rather controversial Aston Martin inspired front trapezoidal grille, resulted from Ford’s affiliation with Aston Martin at the time. The headlights are now sleeker with a swept back design to complement the pointy honeycomb grille. Stylish front and side skirtings accentuate the Ford Focus Sedan’s sporty character.

    The front bumper is all new with redesigned fog light housing that mimics the shape of the headlamps. Chrome trims are used conservatively around the grille and on the up-sloping belt line. The original Mk3 Ford Focus Sedan’s silhouette is retained along with the generously raked A-pillar, well defined shoulder line and pronounced rear haunches.

    The rear taillamps are subtly revised with a more horizontal layout. Compared to the sportier looking hatchback variety, the sedan variant features a much cleaner look at the rear with simpler lower bumper design. The spoiler attached to the boot lid is strictly cosmetic and looks a tad out of place.

    Ford Focus Sedan Dimension

    The Ford Focus Sedan and the third generation Mazda 3 Sedan are both based on Ford’s global C-car platform, although only partially on the Japanese counterpart. They are very closely matched in terms of overall dimension, with the Ford measuring at 46 mm shorter, 28 mm wider and 34 mm taller. Wheelbase is also shorter by 52 mm compared to the Mazda.


     Dimensions
     Length  4,534 mm
     Width  1,823 mm
     Height  1,484 mm
     Wheelbase  2,684 mm



     

  • Interior

    Ford Focus Sedan Interior

    The now improved interior features a new integrated centre console design, offering additional open storage and adjustable cup holders for improved storage capacity. 8-inch colour TFT display takes centre stage and flanked by a pair of vertical air vents. Gone are the old, fiddly, and complicated infotainment control buttons and replaced by a cleaner console design with gloss black inlays.

    Soft touch material is used extensively across the cabin, accented with satin chrome elements for that premium touch. A new leather wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel complements the streamlined cabin design. Beige leather upholstery brightens up the otherwise rather ominous interior colour theme. Ambient lighting and footwell lights create a cozy ambiance in the dark.

    Sharing the same wheelbase as the hatchback variant, interior space, particularly at the rear is limited. Compared to the likes of the Honda Civic that has miles better interior space, having three adults at the back of the Ford Focus Sedan can prove to be a challenge.

  • Driving Performance

    Ford Focus Sedan Driving Performance

    Engine

    Powering the front wheels is Ford’s 1.5 litre EcoBoost engine with direct injection, dishing out an impressive 180 PS at 6,000 RPM and 240 Nm of torque from 1,600 RPM. Century sprint is completed in 8.7 seconds on the way to a top speed of 222 km/h.

    The 1.5 litre 4-pot mill is essentially derived from Ford’s 1.6 litre EcoBoost engine, downsized to enable Ford to penetrate markets like China which offer specific tax relief for vehicles with engines of 1.5 litre capacity or less. Despite the smaller engine capacity, the new 1.5 L engine trumps the outgoing 2.0 L NA Duratec mill in terms of output by 10 PS and 38 Nm.

    Technical highlight on the 1.5 L EcoBoost includes a new integrated exhaust manifold and a water-cooled charge air cooler, which feeds the air into the engine more efficiently. The engine is also the first in Ford to incorporate a computer-controlled clutch on the belt-drive water pump, which helps reduce engine warm-up time.

    Transmission

    The trouble-plague Getrag 6DCT250 dry-clutch 6-speed dual clutch transmission has been dropped in favour of a more conventional torque converter automatic, in this case the SelectShift 6F35 6-speed automatic transmission. The same 6-speed unit can also be seen applied on the Ford Kuga, Ford S-Max, and the Ford Mondeo. Paddle shifters are also available this time, replacing the poorly executed gear shift lever-mounted manual override rocker button on previous model.

  • Ride Comfort

    Ford Focus Sedan Ride Comfort

    Ford’s renowned ride and handling once again is superbly demonstrated in the facelifted Ford Focus Sedan. Based on a highly rigid chassis with MacPherson strut up front and multi-link suspension at the rear, the standard suspension set up copes with bumps and road imperfections with great sophistication while inspiring great confidence when tackling corners.

    The level of steering assist to the EPAS has also been re-tuned to offer lighter steering input with better feedback and response. Great attention has also been given to address the NVH issue suffered by previous model. Revised seals around the hinges and new suspension bushes among other things combine to give the Ford Focus Sedan a more refined ride quality.

  • Conclusion

    They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But that does not stop Ford from continue to improve on the Ford Focus.
