Ford Focus Active is based on the Blue Oval crossover family.
We're talking about the cross-version of the Focus and Focus wagon, an older tariff: applying the hatchback and breaks of the SUV world. In addition to black decorations, Focus Active also features a raised floor protection, a modified chassis and several special features.
Specific aesthetics include black plastic coatings with a matte finish applied to blades, side blades and bumpers. The window frame and the longitudinal bars in the roof also finish in black. The bumpers and side sills combine an additional decorating that simulates aluminum. The Focus Active Wagon is 30 millimeters higher on the front axle and 34 millimeters higher on the rear axle. The same changes are applied to Focus Active in the hatchback version.
Inside, the wiper nut and the parking brake lever are located in the same material, as well as a leather steering wheel with glossy decorations on the panel and door surfaces. The special upholstery is sewn with blue thread and the front seats have more generous pillows. The inner package is complemented by a series of special mats.
The most exciting part of Focus Active is the SLA & # 39; s with independent rear suspension with springs, shock absorbers, stabilizing bars and a different geometry from standard models. The SLA refers to asymmetric suspension suspension arms to provide a balance between shorter-long arm shortening, comfort and sportiness as well as better bumper resistance and less impact on comfort.
At the same time, Focus Active models have two additional operating modes, slippery and traces, which change the response of the traction control system to mud, ice, sand and snow-covered surfaces.
The engine range includes two EcoBoost three-cylinder in-line units and two EcoBlue diesel engines. Customers can purchase a 125 or 150 hp 1.0 EcoBoost engine for the Focus Eco, respectively 1.5 liters and 120 liters or 2.0 liters and 150 liters. Four-wheel drive is not available in this range, but most versions offer an eight-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual transmission.
