General introduction

In the Vietnamese market, Ford Focus is positioned in the C-segment sedan segment, competing with a number of other names such as Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla Altis, KIA Cerato or Hyundai Elantra.

In today’s article, danhgiaXe will identify the Focus 1.5L Ecoboost Titanium 4-door variant, the direct competitor of Mazda 3 2.0L (750 million VND), Honda Civic 1.8 E (763 million VND).

Exterior

Not too elaborate as Japanese-Korean rivals, Focus’s appearance is simple and strong, standard American car style.

Looking directly, the front of the Focus is very impressive with the typical details of the American car company such as the large honeycomb-shaped grille, slender headlights combined with the highlight of the LED daytime running lights, trapezoidal fog lights reverse the way. On the Titanium version, the car uses HID headlamps that turn on when it’s dark and comes with an auto-wash function.

Focus Titanium body design does not have as many curves, angular as rivals. Some embossed details are dispersed evenly across the body such as wheel cavity or embossed above and below the door edge … The rest, most body parts are rounded details of American muscle car style.

Electric rearview mirror with electric folding, integrated turn indicator light, especially electric mirror integrated with electric drying design curved edge design minimizes blind spots, mirror tiles are painted the same body color instead of chrome plating as those current trends. The integrated door handle unlocks without a key and is also painted the same color as the body. Ford Focus Titanium uses 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.

Focus Titanium’s taillights sweep long to the sides, creating a feeling that the car is quite superficial. However, it is quite unfortunate that this lighting is not a complete LED to match the overall.

Ford Focus Titanium sedan has dimensions Length x Width x Height (mm), respectively: 4,538 x 1,823 x 1,468 (mm), wheelbase length 2,648 (mm). These numbers on the Mazda 3 are (4,580 x 1,795 x 1,450) mm, Honda Civic (4,630 x 1,799 x 1,416) mm.

furniture

If the Focus exterior is simple – the opponent is picky, the interior of the Focus is the opposite. Entering the cabin, it will take you quite a while to get acquainted with the system of buttons from the taplo table to the steering wheel of Focus. While Mazda 3 or Honda Civic or are both minimalist and shrunk to the main screen.

The seats on the Titanium version are fully leather and 6-way power driver’s seat. Although the design is quite sporty, the thigh or hip support feels a bit small and short instead of big, so it can be hugged.

Rear seat space is a weakness of Focus, legroom as well as the ceiling space is quite tight and tight compared to Mazda 3, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra or KIA Cerato.

Sporty 3-spoke steering wheel with hunched fingers is quite cool, suitable for the overall interior. In addition, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather and has a suitable size, can adjust 4 directions.

On this steering wheel cluster design modern and sophisticated buttons with blue light at night. To the left of the steering wheel are buttons that control the center screen and cruise control system with speed limit function. On the right are the buttons for controlling the audio system and hands-free conversation. The rear also integrates the gearshift pad, giving the Focus a true sportiness.

Focus’s clock cluster is shaped like a sports motorcycle, the silver-plated contours create the feeling that the watches are arranged in the separate niches. Numbers displayed on the speedometer are designed to staggered to small with each other looks quite fancy, the center screen also provides full information such as distance traveled, level, fuel consumption information … though However, the color and layout of the parameters are still simple and outdated.

Convenient

Comfort equipment is a plus for the Focus Titanium. The entertainment system is controlled via an 8-inch TFT touch screen, with an SD card slot, USB, Bluetooth. All passengers are served through a 9-speaker sound system with good quality, and especially SYNC 2. Voice control system. For customers who are busy with work and need internet connection anytime and anywhere, Focus is also equipped with a WIFI Internet transmitter.

Focus is one of the few cars in the segment equipped with 2-zone automatic air conditioning system, intuitive and modern control interface, only two temperature knobs, the rest are mostly buttons. , with handy backlight when adjusting at night. The quality of cooling is generally good, deep cooling. However, it is a pity that Ford has yet to equip the rear seats for air, so the cooling rate is only average.

In addition, Ford can say quite thoughtful when equipped with almost full interior lighting system for Focus Titanium, from central lights for the front row, rear seats to the door opening levers. also equipped with lights, so that customers hardly have to grop too much in the dark.

Ford Focus Titanium is also equipped with a small size electric sunroof, mainly for front passengers.

Conclude

However, the downside of Focus is in the second row of seats, which are quite tight, with no extra air doors. In this regard, the car is somewhat inferior to Honda Civic, KIA Cerato or Hyundai Elantra if the criteria is to buy cars for the family.

So, who is Ford Focus Titanium for? Young customers love the strong driving experience, love to design American cars and need a vehicle for work, carrying children.
