Press Release :

  • Ford Focus ranks as the best-selling vehicle nameplate in the world, based on just-released Polk new vehicle registration data for the 2013 calendar year
  • Focus gains momentum with 50 percent sales growth in Chinese market
  • New Focus four-door sedan globally unveiled, featuring leading combination of technology, fuel economy and power

Ford Focus retains its title as world’s best-selling vehicle nameplate for 2013, according to Ford analysis of the just-released full-year Polk new vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive. The news comes as a new Focus four-door sedan prepares to make its debut at next week’s 2014 New York International Auto Show.

Registrations of the compact Focus were up 8.1 percent with 1,097,618 cars sold worldwide last year. That compares with global Focus sales of 1,014,965 in 2012.

Market gains for Focus continue to be driven by consumer demand in China. China registrations were up 50 percent in 2013 to 403,219 vehicles, up from 268,354 vehicles in 2012. China now is responsible for just more than one out of three Focus vehicles sold globally, based on Polk data.

The debut of the new Focus four-door sedan and the Focus Electric in New York follows the Geneva Motor Show debut in March of the Focus three- and five-door hatchback and wagon. A new version of the performance Focus ST will be shown later this year.

The redesigned Ford Focus offers a bolder exterior design, a more intuitive and upscale interior, a host of technologies uncommon for a compact car and the additional powertrain option of Ford’s award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost® engine with a new six-speed manual transmission in the U.S.-spec Focus. While U.S. EPA fuel economy ratings are not yet available, Ford expects the 1.0-liter EcoBoost Focus to raise the bar in fuel efficiency among non-hybrid compact vehicles.

For 2015, Focus adds an SE Sport Package, which includes new body treatments, paddle shifters (requires automatic transmission), a revised touring suspension, 17-inch black gloss aluminum wheels and P215/50 HR-17 tires.

The paddle shift feature provides drivers an additional element of control by allowing them to simulate the manual gear selection aspects of a manual transmission and extract more power from their engines.

Also notable for 2015, Ford’s popular MyKey® feature will be standard on all trim levels. An all-new heated steering wheel will be available as well as 10 different wheels as factory options.

“It is remarkable to see Focus again lead the industry as the No. 1-selling vehicle nameplate on the planet,” said Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president, Ford Motor Company Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln. “With the new car, we’ve raised the bar again, showcasing Ford’s commitment to continuous improvement – adding better technology for drivers and a sleeker, more modern exterior across the entire Focus family.”

While the latest Focus is essentially the same worldwide, color preference varies. In the U.S. market, Sterling Gray is the most popular at 21 percent of sales, with Tuxedo Black second at 15 percent. In China, Crystal Solid White is overwhelmingly the most popular with just more than 50 percent of sales. Candy Red is second at 17 percent.

Fiesta world’s best-selling subcompact

Ford’s analysis of Polk new vehicle registrations also confirms Ford Fiesta earned the top spot as the best-selling subcompact car globally, with 735,299 registrations for 2013.

Together, registrations of Ford’s small cars – Fiesta and Focus – totaled 1,832,917 vehicles last year, which is a 4.3 percent increase from 2012.

Award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost

In addition to a host of styling and technology advances, the new Focus will offer the efficient, fun-to-drive 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine with a six-speed manual transmission. Automotive journalists globally named it International Engine of the Year for 2012 and 2013.

“The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is proof that excellent fuel economy and performance can come in one package,” said Raj Nair, group vice president, Ford Global Product Development. “Focus is already known for bringing together efficiency and fun, and our latest offering will bring consumers a whole new level of enjoyment – on the road and in what they’ll save at the pump.”

The smallest engine in Ford’s growing EcoBoost family – already available in Fiesta - will come standard in Focus with an Auto Start-Stop feature that automatically shuts down the engine at stops and instantly turns it back on at takeoff.

EcoBoost technology combines smaller-displacement engines with turbocharging, direct injection, variable valve timing and proprietary Ford software to bring customers outstanding performance and fuel economy. Ford EcoBoost engines can deliver significantly better fuel economy than larger-displacement gasoline engines.

New Focus customers also will enjoy a quieter ride, achieved by thicker carpets and side window glass and improved engine-bay insulation.

Stylish new Focus

The new Focus arrives with a bolder look. It features a restyled hood and grille, signature LED lighting for headlamps and taillamps, new rear lamp clusters and a restyled trunk lid. Four-door and five-door versions will be available in the United States.

Inside, colors and materials have a clean, modern look, with satin chrome detailing, new seat trims and switches, and an available heated steering wheel. A new center console incorporating adjustable cupholders improves storage capacity.

Advanced technologies

A package of sensors brings a new level of convenience for compact car customers by adding driver-assist technologies, including a rear view camera, available Blind Spot Information System and a lane-keeping system.

Standard on Focus for the first time, the rearview camera will appear on either a 4.2-inch screen or the 8-inch screen that comes with MyFord Touch®-equipped cars.

BLIS® uses two advanced multiple-beam radar modules, the same used with cross-traffic alert, which are packaged in both rear quarter panels. The radar identifies when a vehicle enters the defined blind spot zone and illuminates an indicator light on the corresponding sideview mirror, providing a warning that a vehicle is approaching.

Should a Focus driver start to drift out of the current lane without a turn signal activated, the lane-keeping system provides a warning through a series of steering wheel vibrations that mimic a rumble strip. If the unintended lane departure is not corrected by the driver, the aid function of the system actively applies steering to help the driver direct the car back toward the center of the current lane.

The new Focus benefits from advancements in exterior styling, interior design, powertrain and technology, as well as suspension and chassis upgrades.

These include a new shock absorber valve design providing improved interior quietness, and a change to the rear suspension to give drivers a more connected feel to the road. The electric power-assisted steering has been retuned to make the driver feel even more connected to the road.

Enhanced SYNC AppLink

Focus drivers will have access to powerful new capabilities thanks to a host of functions developers can integrate as they modify their apps to communicate with enhanced SYNC® AppLink.

Android and iOS smartphone users can download more than 60 AppLink-enabled apps from the Apple App Store and Android market.

New functions include:

  • Connected apps can access a variety of real-time vehicle data such as speed, acceleration, odometer and location information that can be used by the app to further customize and personalize the owner experience. For example, access to the in-vehicle GPS signal can enable more precise and accurate location-based services than phone sensors
  • More consistent user experience thanks to voice pass-through capability. This enables developers to use on-device or cloud-based voice-recognition systems to evaluate driver commands, meaning drivers can use the same set of voice commands to control an app when connected to the vehicle as they would use when not connected
  • Notifications read aloud as a driver enters the car, with no need to touch the phone. Best of all, alerts are available any time a mobile device is connected to SYNC AppLink, even if the app is not currently active. This means a driver could get an alert about a traffic jam ahead while listening to the radio or using another app

Ford builds the Focus in eight manufacturing plants on four continents. Facilities in Germany, the United States, Russia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan and Argentina have a combined capacity to build more than 1.5 million Focus cars annually at a rate of more than two per second.

Since the launch of Focus in 1998, the best-selling vehicle nameplate in the world for two years running has sold more than 12 million vehicles globally.

Vero Touareg, e migliora decisamente.

Ma i fari sciolti... :(((

Immagino fosse un pelo troppo costoso andare a modificare anche quel lamierato.

Aggiunte anche le altre foto.

      DS Automobilies schiera la pedina più importante della sua giovane storia. Infatti, la DS 3 Crossback  è la seconda delle sei auto totalmente inedite che il marchio presenterà entro il 2024, ma è la prima che rispetta la promessa di proporre una versione ibrida plug-in o una full-electric. È, quindi, con questo modello che DS inizia a proporre uno dei frutti del suo ruolo di leader dell’innovazione all’interno del gruppo PSA: l’elettrificazione.
       
      Missione strategica. Di conseguenza, le caratteristiche più scontate della DS 3 Crossback sono la corporatura da Suv e la taglia compatta, dovuta alla lunghezza di 4,12 m. Il loro intreccio la collocano in uno dei settori accreditati di maggiore crescita nei prossimi anni e nel quale, in ossequio alle ambizioni premium del marchio, si propone come alternativa a modelli come l’Audi Q2 e la Mini Countryman. Parallelamente questa nuova Suv compatta accompagna in pensione la DS 3.
       
      Si proietta nel futuro, ma non tradisce il passato. Svolge questi compiti indossando vesti nelle quali s’intersecano stilemi evoluti dalla vettura che sostituirà con altri del tutto inediti. Si tratta, per esempio, della palpebra che sormonta i fari anteriori e degli elaborati scudi paraurti. Abbinandosi a tratti caratterizzanti come le “pinne di squalo” laterali ereditate dalla DS 3, le fiancate muscolose che insieme all’andamento orizzontale della coda tendono a esaltare l’autorevolezza della corporatura e l’altezza da terra rialzata originano un aspetto che non passa inosservato. Poi, la DS 3 Crossback sfoggia anche soluzioni raffinate come le maniglie delle porte retrattili, tipo quelle della Tesla e della Range Rover Velar. Inoltre, anteriormente inalbera accanto alla grande calandra DS dei gruppi ottici Matrix Led Vision Beam.
       
       
      Punta al'elettrico... Quella dei fari è una tecnologia inusuale su una vettura compatta, ma non è quella di maggiore spicco. Infatti, la DS 3 Crossback porta al debutto alcune importanti primizie. È questo il caso dell’architettura CMP (Common Modular Platform) studiata per ottimizzare la volumetria interna, soprattutto, in presenza della propulsione elettrica. Quest’ultima dà origine alla versione E-Tense ed è affidata a un’unità con una potenza di 136 CV e una coppia di 260 Nm, gestibile anche con le modalità Eco e Sport. È alimentata da una batteria agli ioni di litio da 50 kWh ricaricabile completamente in 5 ore tramite wallbox e all’80% in 30 minuti utilizzando una colonnina rapida. Secondo la Casa è in grado di spingere la vettura a una velocità di 150 all’ora e sino a 100 orari in 8,7 secondi, con un’autonomia  superiore ai 300 chilometri, secondo il ciclo Wltp. Ma questo valore, al momento, non è ancora stato omologato.
       
      …pur non ripudiando benzina e gasolio. Ma le novità non mancano anche nello schieramento dei motori termici. Tra quelli a benzina PureTech, tra l’altro tutti con filtro antiparticolato, debutta il tre cilindri turbo di 1.2 litri con 155 CV, abbinato al cambio automatico a otto marce, al quale si affiancano quelli di analoga cilindrata da 100 e 130 CV. Il capitolo dei turbodiesel BlueHDi, invece, è composto dai recentissimi motori di 1.5 litri con potenze di 100 e 130 CV. Per le unità da 130 e 155 CV è previsto solo il cambio automatico a otto marce, mentre le meno potenti sono equipaggiate con il manuale a sei marce.
       
      L’artigianalità incontra l’hi-tech. All'interno si ritrovano le lavorazioni complesse che vogliono esaltare la ricercatezza del marchio e anche gli allestimenti Montmartre, Bastille, Rivoli e Opera, ai quali si aggiungono la sportiva Performance Line e quella in tiratura limitata La Première, che rimandano ad ambientazioni parigine. Ma questa Crossback è diversa dalle altre DS. L’arredamento, infatti, è il punto d’incontro tra materiali e lavorazioni che vogliono richiamare l’artigianalità e la sartorialità e soluzioni hi-tech come la strumentazione digitale, l’head-up display e il touch screen da 10,3” del sistema d’infotainment.
       
      Adas, connettività e servizi dedicati. La nuova Crossback porta con sé, di serie o a richiesta, il sistema di guida autonoma di livello 2 della più grossa DS 7, avanzati dispositivi di sicurezza, una connettività che permette di dialogare con la vettura anche solo con il Bluetooth e molte app dedicate. Tra queste, c’è anche quella che consente di assegnare l'auto, anche solo per periodi ben definiti, ad altri utenti. Infine, tra i molti pacchetti va segnalato DS Mobility. È destinato a chi acquista la E-Tense, perché offre la possibilità di utilizzare una DS 3 con motore termico quando non si è così certi di trovare facilmente punti di ricarica per la Crossback elettrica.
