THE FOURTH-GENERATION Ford Focus has arrived in Ireland and is available in dealerships now.

Launched originally in 1998, the Focus nameplate is celebrating 20 years this year. More than 129,000 Focus models have been sold in Ireland since its original launch, making it one of the most popular cars in Ireland.

Speaking about the launch of this all-new model, Ciarán McMahon, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland, said:

In spite of the rise of the SUV over the last number of years, Focus is consistently in the top 10 for car sales in Ireland and we are sure that this high-tech new Focus will delight the many fans that the nameplate has won over the last 20 years.

The all-new Focus is bigger than before and provides more space inside for passengers and luggage. More than five centimetres in additional length between the front and rear wheels allows for more knee clearance for rear seat passengers, and all occupants benefit from the wider interior – there’s six centimetres more shoulder room in the rear.

Available in five-door hatchback and estate body-styles the Focus is offered from launch with one diesel and one petrol option.The diesel is Ford’s new 1.5-litre EcoBlue engine producing 120hp and delivering from 3.6 litres/100km fuel efficiency and CO2 from 94g/km.

The petrol is Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine producing 125hp and delivering from 4.8 litres/100km fuel efficiency and CO2 from 108g/km.

A six-speed manual gearbox comes as standard but buyers can also opt for a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The all-new Focus will initially be available in four trims in Ireland: Zetec, ST-Line, Titanium and Vignale. The new Active SUV-inspired trim will be available next year.
