Geneva (switzerland), 2. Mar 2010 – at the detroit motor show in january 2010, ford showed the new focus as a four- and funfturer. It is the latest attempt by ford to be the "world car" as a world car. The chances are not bad this time, because the requirements and tastes in europe, north america and asia have moved closer together in recent decades – which also brings the "globalization" with it. At the geneva motor show (4. To 14. March 2010), the station wagon version of the compact car will be presented.
Quite conventional rear end
The new focus turnier is intended to offer a mixture of sporty design and practical functionality. In contrast to the very extroverted funfturer, the station wagon has a more conventional appearance. Nevertheless, the coarse jerk lamps are conspicuous. While the beltline rises dynamically, the roof and rear end are conservative in design. This is to the benefit of the interior, especially the luggage compartment volume. Integrated roof rails extend along the entire length of the roof. A rear spoiler provides a sporty finish to the vehicle. The tailgate closes automatically at extra cost. Ford has not yet revealed further details such as the hood or the size of the trunk.
Ford has also announced new gasoline and diesel engines. The new "ecoboost"-gasoline engines combine direct injection with turbocharging and variable valve timing. They are important for ford: the diesel engines from the cooperation with psa were among the best on the market anyway, while volkswagen in particular had pulled ahead of ford in the gasoline segment in recent years. Power is transmitted via the optional power shift dual-clutch transmission. After the market launch of the five-door focus is scheduled for the beginning of 2011, the station wagon has to wait a few months longer.
