All-New Ford Focus Active | Shropshire | Furrows Ford

Rough road-capable. Fun to drive. 

The Focus Active chassis features unique springs, dampers, stabiliser bars, and front and rear knuckle geometries, alongside a ride height raised 30mm front and 34mm rear over the standard Focus.

The SLA system optimises comfort and response, and features an isolated subframe that delivers a desirable balance between front and rear compliance over larger bumps in the road, for smoother journeys. Multi-compound bushes feature different stiffness characteristics when stressed in different directions, for better isolation of smaller bumps and improved noise, vibration and harshness. A unique SLA geometry for the wagon model repositions the dampers helping the vehicle remain agile and responsive even with a fully loaded boot, and helping maximise boot space with a wider load-floor area.

Selectable Drive Modes 

​In addition to the Normal, Sport and Eco Selectable Drive Modes equipped as standard for all Focus models, the Focus Active introduces:

  • Slippery mode, which adjusts ESC and traction control settings for increased confidence on surfaces with reduced grip such as mud, snow and ice; reduces straight-ahead wheel spin, including when pulling away from stationary; and delivers a more passive throttle response
  • Trail mode, which helps maintain momentum on soft surfaces such as sand; adjusts anti-lock braking to allow greater wheel slip; configures traction control to allow higher wheel spin that cleans sand, snow or mud from the tyres; and delivers a more passive throttle response

Effortless cruising with advanced engines and technologies

The all-new Focus Active delivers the comprehensive range of sophisticated driver assistance technologies introduced to the all-new Focus earlier this year. Advanced technologies seamlessly integrated to enable an intuitive, stress-reducing and refined driving experience include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control, which now enhanced with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane-Centring for effortlessly negotiating stop-start traffic
  • Ford’s Adaptive Front Lighting System with new camera-based Predictive curve light and Sign-based light that pre-adjust headlamp patterns for improved visibility by monitoring bends in the road and – for the first time in the industry – road signs
  • Ford’s first Head-up display to be offered in Europe, helping drivers focus their attention on the road ahead
  • Evasive Steering Assist, a segment-first technology that helps drivers steer around stopped or slower vehicles to help avoid collisions

Engines and fuel efficiency

Focus Active customers can choose from a range of advanced Ford EcoBoost petrol and Ford EcoBlue diesel engines delivering optimised power and refinement. Powertrains are supported by standard Auto Start-Stop for reduced running costs; and slick-shifting six-speed manual or new eight-speed automatic transmissions for effortless cruising. The sophisticated eight-speed automatic adapts to different driving styles to offer optimised gear changes.

Ford’s multi-award-winning 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine delivers from 107g/km CO2 emissions and 58.9mpg (combined) fuel efficiency. Ford’s 150PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine delivers from 121g/km and 5.3 l/100km. Ford’s 120PS 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine delivers from 93g/km and 62.8mpg (combined). Ford’s 150PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine delivers from 114g/km and 78.5mpg (combined).
