Ford Focus actively endorses the Crossover family of Blue Oval.
We are talking about a crossover version of Focus and Focus Walk, which goes on an older recipe: implemented elements of the SUV world on hatchback and breaks. In addition to the black ornaments, Focus Active also has a discreetly raised land guard, a modified chassis and some specific amenities.
Special aesthetics include black plastic finishes with matte finish applied to wing bumpers, side sills and bumpers. The window frame and the longitudinal bars on the roof are also finished in black. Bumpers and side sills integrate additional ornaments that imitate aluminum. Focus Active Wagon is 30 meters higher in the front axle and 34 magnets higher in the rear axle. The same changes are also applied to Focus Active in the hatchback version.
The interior brings a leather steering wheel along with the wiper nut and parking brake lever finished in the same material, along with glossy ornaments on the dashboard and on the door faces. The specific upholstery is sewn with blue thread, and the front seats have more generous pillows. The interior package is complemented by a set of specific mats.
The most exciting part of the Focus Active is the loose charge suspension SLA, which includes springs, shock absorbers, stabilizing bars and a geometry different from that of standard models. The SLA, Short-Long Arm Acronyme, refers to the asymmetrical suspension suspension arms to allow balance between comfort and sportsiness, as well as better bumper resistance and reduced impact on comfort.
At the same time, the Focus Active Models received two still running modes, Slippery and Trail, which should change the response of the traction control system to surfaces covered with mud, ice, sand and snow.
The range of engines includes two EcoBoost three-cylinder in-line units and two EcoBlue diesel engines. Customers can purchase the 1.0 ecoboost engine with 125 or 150 hp, respectively 1.5-liter and 120-liter or 2.0 liters and 150-liter for focus activity. All-wheel curtain is not available in this range, but an automatic eight-speed automatic transmission for most versions or six-speed manual transmission is offered.
