Ford Gives Lucky Malaysians All-New Focus ST Drive Experience
Ford Malaysia recently provided 60 lucky Malaysians with the thrilling experience of driving its first global performance car, the all-new Focus ST, through an exclusive driving experience session. Hundreds of Malaysian drivers jumped at the chance to try out the turbocharged yet fuel-efficient all-new Ford Focus ST at the ELITE Speedway circuit racetrack in Kuala Lumpur, which provided an ideal venue to test the outstanding handling and incredible driving dynamics of this high-performance model.
The driving experience also allowed drivers to experience the power of Ford’s 250 PS high-output version of the fuel-efficient 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which helps deliver acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 248 km/h. The engine also offers strong torque levels in a broad, flat curve peaking at 340 Nm.
“The opportunity to drive the all-new Focus ST was truly an unforgettable experience,” said Ashok Kumar Nambiar, a senior regional sales director for an international IT and communications company. “The all-new Focus ST clearly showcases the high quality and performance of Ford’s vehicles.”
The range-topping all-new Ford Focus ST delivers an exhilarating combination of outstanding performance, handling, refinement and style in a muscular and aerodynamic design. Innovation and technology combine to create driving dynamics capable of exceeding the expectations of even the most demanding auto enthusiast.
The all-new Focus ST was the best-selling hot hatch in Europe over the last three months of 2012, according to automotive data intelligence provider Polk,* representing 44 per cent of all hot hatches sold in Europe; ahead of VW Golf GTI and Renault Megane Sport. In order to meet the high demand for more exclusive test drives, Ford’s Malaysian distribution partner Sime Darby Auto Connexion is already planning additional exhilarating all-new Focus ST drive sessions in the near future.
