The 2018 incarnation of the Ford Focus Zetec has been designed to make the interior more spacious, making it more comfortable for passengers and allowing you to fit everything you need in the boot. There’s enviable amounts of head and leg room for all occupants, meaning that even your tallest passenger will travel in comfort. The new interior makes the most of every aspect, from the front leg room to the boot. The rear seats split 60/40 and fold down to provide generous luggage space. There’s also an adjustable load floor in the boot, which can be lowered to increase space or raised to create a handy hidden storage compartment. So whether you need room for work equipment or space for weekend trip luggage, the Zetec is up to the challenge!
The Zetec integrates smartphone technology into every journey, meaning you never feel out of the loop. With SYNC 3, you can make the most of your smartphone when you’re on the move. This advanced system is easy to use with its enhanced voice commands and increased functionality, the larger buttons improve your usability while the colour touchscreen now incorporates pinch-and-swipe gestures, exactly the same as you find on your smartphone. Ford have also ensured that you can utilise all this system has to offer thanks to its use of AppLink, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so no matter which smartphone you have, you can display its information on the central touchscreen.
Under the Zetec’s bonnet lies your choice of powerful and
highly fuel-efficient engine. The Ford EcoBoost petrol engines now feature
cylinder deactivation, which shuts off a cylinder when torque demand is low,
such as on a motorway. The Ford EcoBlue diesel engines also improve fuel
efficiency, are more responsive and are also less noisy than ever before. The
exterior design has also been sculpted to create a shape that’s both athletic
and aerodynamic, whilst helping to improve efficiency even further. All engines
now have particulate filters to help reduce emissions, and are fitted with Auto
Start-Stop technology that can save fuel by automatically switching off the
engine when you come to a halt.
