You can now own one of the best selling Ford vehicles – the Ford Focus from as low as RM668/month* or simply choose the RM15,000 cash rebate. Not only is it dashing and seriously fun to drive, the Ford Focus is packed with an array of smart technologies and powered by the award winning 1.5L EcoBoost petrol engine. Available in six different stylish colours — Frozen White, Panther Black, Ingot Silver, Candy Red, Magnetic and Winning Blue — it is also one of the most powerful yet efficient vehicles in the mid-size car segment, in Malaysia.
“This agile little wonder is simply a dynamic car that every Malaysian should consider owning, especially when more consumers are opting for fuel-efficient cars these days,” said Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director, Sime Darby Auto Connexion.
“This car also made it to the AutoBuzz.my list of the Best Cars of the Year 2016, #ABC2016, while its 1.5L EcoBoost engine received a special recognition from Vehicle of the Year Awards (VOTY) 2017 for ‘Petrol Engine of The Year’ by DSF.my-Allianz Vehicle of the Year 2017 (VOTY 2017),” he continued.
He also added, “while we take fun seriously, safety is still of utmost importance in every car we sell.”
Seriously fun features to keep you safe
At the forefront of safety innovations, the Ford Focus helps drivers maintain awareness of their surroundings via the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert feature, which uses three distinct warnings to alert drivers if the system detects a vehicle approaching either from the left or the right side, up to a range of 40 meters. Using radar technology, BLIS alerts the driver when another motorist is in the driver’s blind spot by illuminating warning LEDs in the external mirrors.
The Focus also comes with smart, hands-free parking system called Enhanced Active Park Assist, which builds on Ford’s popular Parallel Park Assist with the addition of Perpendicular Park Assist. Once activated, the system scans for available parking spaces alongside other cars. When it finds one, the system takes control of the car’s steering to guide the vehicle into the space while the driver controls the shifting, braking and acceleration.
Perpendicular Park Assist uses two new ultrasonic sensors on the rear of the car, which also enables Park-Out Assist. Park-Out Assist takes the stress out of exiting a parallel parking space by taking control of the steering while the driver operates the brake and accelerator.
In urban driving up of to 50 km/h, an Enhanced Active City Stop System can help to mitigate low-speed collisions. The system pre-charges the brakes if the car is approaching a vehicle in front too quickly. If the driver fails to take action, the system reduces engine torque and automatically applies the brakes to reduce the impact of a collision.
Another cutting-edge safety driver assist technology available in the Ford Focus is the Enhanced Transitional Stability technology that actively determines when a car meets the conditions that may lead to a spin and intervenes early to help prevent the driver from losing control. When a risk is identified, the brakes are applied to individual wheels in order to help the driver maintain control and continue on the intended path.
When a vehicle owner is not behind the wheel, the Ford MyKeyTM allows for a spare key to be programmed to reduce the maximum speed of the vehicle, give an earlier low-fuel warning, limits the volume of the in-car entertainment or even disables it completely if the seatbelt is not fastened. The technology can provide reassurance to owners when lending their car to less experienced drivers.
Ford Focus’ impressive all new SYNCTM 3, an assistant on the road, allows voice commands to make calls, play music, and have text messages read aloud, while driving. SYNCTM 3 currently supports Android AutoTM and Apple CarPlay.
The Ford Focus is not just smart; it’s also a green car packed with fuel efficient features such as the Active Grille Shutters which works to optimise airflow via motorized vanes which rotate to block airflow, resulting in reduced aerodynamic drag by up to six per cent to save fuel.
The 4-cylinder 1.5L EcoBoost engine is the fifth member of the EcoBoost family with the capacity to boost fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions up to 20 per cent. It is the most powerful in its class – churning out an impressive 180PS of power and 240Nm of torque.
Other features of the Ford Focus include:
● Keyless entry Push-button Start
● Six airbags
● Dual-zone climate control
● Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
● Electronic Power-assisted Steering (EPAS)
● Torque Vectoring Control
● Hill Launch Assist
● Six-speed SelectShift with paddle shifters
The Ford Focus also offers remarkable levels of cabin quietness, with sound deadening materials – including sound-insulating windshield glass, thicker side-window glass, thicker carpets, increased insulation in the door trims, and improved engine insulation – for increased refinement.
The impressive safety features in the Ford Focus resulted in the car being awarded with Euro NCAP’s maximum 5-star rating.
