Ireland’s Focus

0

Ford has launched the All-New Ford Focus in Ireland. Ford says “This latest version of the Ford Focus delivers more style, space and advanced driving technologies for mid-size family car customers than ever before”. Ford goes on to say its engineers collaborated closely with car-buyers to develop all-new Focus five-door hatchback and even more practical Focus wagon models in distinctive versions, each with their own personality – including the stylish Focus Titanium, sporty Focus ST-Line and upscale Focus Vignale. Ford also says the all-new Focus Active crossover model, arriving in Ireland early 2019, will feature rugged sports utility vehicle-inspired styling that includes raised ride-height, roof bars and additional cladding.

“Our all-new Ford Focus is the pinnacle of technology and driving appeal in its segment,” said Ciarán McMahon, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland. “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.”

Prices start from €24,900 and is available with engines fueled by petrol or diesel.
