The New Ford Focus
Earlier this year, the Ford Focus line-up was completed with the addition of the new Ford Focus TDCi 4-door sedan with six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission and the 1.8L Focus Trend sedan now with the convenience of an automatic transmission.  The Ford Focus line-up was completed with a total of eight variants. The entry-level Ford Focus Style and Trend in 1.8L Duratec with manual transmissions, the Ford Focus Trend in 1.8L Duratec with automatic transmissions, available in both sedan and hatch, the Focus Ghia 4-door 2.0L Duratec AT, the Focus Sport Hatch 2.0L Duratec AT and finally, the top two variants with Ford’s Six-speed Dual Clutch PowerShift technology, the Focus Ghia Sedan 2.0L Duratec AT and Focus Sport Hatch 2.0L Duratec AT.

The Ford Focus Sport Hatch boasts of a new front bumper giving it a sportier edge, with body color matching Front Hood Bar and Fog Lamp Bezel. Its latest innovative offerings is through the 16- inch ST Design Wheels, specially designed for the ultimate comfort and smooth driving with the Ford Focus. With class-first features such as Rain Sensing Wipers, Auto On/Off Headlamps and Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror, this Ford Focus Sport is geared for optimum performance on the road with the comfort and convenience.

The Focus TDCi PowerShift Promise
One of the Ford Focus’ most distinctive features has always been the Ford PowerShift™ TDCi difference. The technology delivers the fuel efficiency and dynamics of a manual gearbox with the driving ease and full comfort of a premium automatic transmission, all because of its electronically-controlled dual-clutch technology to change gears. Not only does PowerShift™ allow you to tap into more power and control in its six-speed transmission, it also helps reduce fuel consumption by up to nine percent depending on the application.
Following regional recognition as the Best Hatchback Diesel at the 2009 Bangkok International Motor Show, it was also recognized locally at the 2009 Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards as Media Choice Awardee for the Most Fuel- efficient Diesel vehicle, and at the C! Awards as 2009’s Best Compact Vehicle.
Furthermore, for two years running, it has landed in the Top Ten Fuel Misers List of the annual Department of Energy (DOE) Fuel Economy Run.

The Ford Focus Ownership Experience

What’s more Ford commits to providing free parts and labor for the first two maintenance services – 1,000 km and 10,000 km while other brands provide labor only and just on the first 5,000km  maintenance service.
