EcoBoost Focus still 'causing a storm'

It's hard to imagine the Ford Focus being any more popular than it was but that is exactly what has happened with the release of the EcoBoost petrol engine range.

The powerful one-litre model has been available in Bristol Street Motors dealerships for over a month now and still the model is "causing a storm".

With figures boasting a top speed of 120mph and a 0-62mph time of under 12 seconds – all from a one-litre engine don't forget – it's easy to see why.

Ford believes that the power the car possesses will convince even the most sceptical of UK drivers.

With a maximum engine torque of 170Nm, the EcoBoost outperforms a standard 1.6 litre engine.

But power beyond its size is not the only draw attracting drivers to the all-new Focus as it also boasts first-rate efficiency figures.

CO2 emissions come in at just 109kg/km – which means zero road tax for the first year – and fuel consumption is 20 per cent better than the 1.6-liter engine the EcoBoost replaces.

A spokesman for Bristol Street Motors explained that the car's efficiency and driveability have led to some great feedback from the motoring public.

"The Ford Focus one-litre engine is suitable for anyone who is looking for a quality driving experience combined with a high level of fuel economy," they said.

"The technology is making its debut in the Ford Focus range, which is billed as perfect for anyone who wants a powerful drive plus the benefits of low fuel consumption."

Drivers looking to get behind the wheel of the new Focus model will also benefit from a host of standard safety features including driver and passenger airbags, Ford's Intelligence Protection System and anti-lock brakes which combine to create "one of the safest cars on the road", according to Bristol Street Motors.
