At Ford, one is proud to have the world's best selling car (12 million in 16 years) in their own ranks, which of course is just a question of skilful combination. After all, here seems to be managed the 'world car', of the also General Motors at least dreamed already once.

This is of course a responsibility to design such a car new. The you can feel when you look at the video below with the participants in the development. There then is much less risked as for example with the first Focus. New-wedge design meanwhile practise others, e.g. Skoda in hints with the new Octavia Coupé Concept.

It is like that. When it's hard up with the factory or a model, the designers will be rather encouraged, if all runs well, is smoothed. After all, one has take in hand the dashboard with success. It is at least as interesting as the old but much better to operate (Figure 7), e.g. with a significantly lower number of confusing buttons.

The new interior equipment also includes the successor to the SYNC system with read-aloud function. In the second generation, the system can also listen and interpret. This means you will enter the complete destination address at once and the car steers there. Just kidding.

Finally, someone has also wondered about how to pull out of parking spaces and not just about to pull in. If one wheels backwards into the cross traffic, the system warns you against vehicles which are less than 40 metres away. This then is not enough for re-parking, but at least for not to continue to drive forward.

One is so bent on modernities that one easily disappointed reacts when registering Bi-xenon, because still no LED is available. Nevertheless, xenon is also further developed, can distinguish in addition to the previous between town and country and adapt to objects oncoming, including even pedestrians.

For the drives exists in addition to the now already a bit famous EcoBoost three-cylinder, two such with four cylinders and really enough performance and above all enough torque. Overall, the CO 2 emissions are reduced significantly once again , not least by the offer of diesel engines.

The new Focus is a convincing offer with quite a good basic equipment. Whether it looks too similar its little brother
Fiesta, or rather the Aston-Martin unattainable for it, about it let's arguing the gods ... 01/15
