First there is the new three-cylinder turbocharged direct injection (the first two engines above), which is established as drive for the future vehicle-middle class, although it has only one litertotal displacement. The first should bring unbeatable consumption values. Initial tests in the Focus, it certify a respectable running performance meeting the requirements of the class.
About design may be debated but not about sliding doors, particular when parking in tight parking spots. This of course comes right on cue for a four-meter car. Imagine, how short would be swinging doors. So you will easily reach the seats and if you want to load back something larger, you also can get better.
In addition at this car is omitted even the B-pillar. This omission, of course, makes even more sense here than for vehicles with rear swing doors. Ford promises that the side impact safety has not suffered by the reversal of B-pillar. The result is then yet a new body concept where progress is actually no longer considered possible. 08/12
