Segment Leading Ford Focus

With over 10 million units sold since its introduction in 1998, the Ford Focus has become a firm favourite with consumers worldwide for its outstanding value, comfort and safety, and above all, for being great fun to drive. The all-new Focus is also packed with more smart technologies and features that put the fun and convenience into driving. Generally found only in larger, more expensive cars, many of these smart features are a first in the mid-sized car segment.

  • Award-winning Ford SYNC™ system, powered by Microsoft – reads text messages, enables drivers to make and take calls or play their favourite music using voice commands.
  • Active Park Assist – hands free parallel parking system is the first in the segment for Malaysia (only on Sport+ and Titanium+ models).
  • Active City Stop – automatically applies the brake in the event the car ahead stops suddenly (only on Sport+ and Titanium+ models).
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) – a warning system that alerts drivers when a vehicle enters the driver’s blind spot area (available in the Titanium+ variant).
  • Active Grille Shutter – automatically opens and closes the lower grille, controlling the amount of air entering the engine compartment, improving aerodynamics and fuel economy by reducing drag.
  • 2.0L Ti-VCT GDI I-4 engine – delivering 170PS of power and 202Nm of torque, better fuel economy.
  • Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and Torque Vectoring Control – prevents slippage to gain traction and control during hard corners.
  • Electric power-assisted steering system (EPAS) – delivers precise steering with a natural and confident feel, while reducing fuel consumption by up to three percent.
