The new ford focus

I know it's been out a while but my dad got a new focus today (Zetec) and I had to have a wee bomb around in it....
I must say the power is disappointing 1.6 125bhp I think the zr is quicker off the mark but probably a higher top speed in the focus.
But the ride and equipment is lovely. Suspension is great for bumps, dab radio, parking sensors, iPod connection as standard and many other buttons that I need to read the manual for lol
Overall will be nice to drive when the zr is in the garage....... Which happens to be this weekend :-)

Ive just got a 1.6 (115bhp) titanium, hell of an improvement from the ZR, so comfy and i think it feels quicker than the zr (120) too.

I do miss the go kart feel the ZR had, but overall im happy with it

They do drive nice the new focus' but I just plain don't like the look of them. Especially the bullfrog ST.

My Uncle just bought a 12 plate Focus as well. I was looking at it at the weekend. It's ok, certainly got loads of gadgets and shnizz which makes it perfect for him. Not for me though. I didn't have the heart to tell him I think the front bumper/grill looks bloody horrible.

My best mates dad just shelled out on a brand new one too

If I'm honest I really don't like the exterior especially the grill and rear lights I also find the dash a bit pointless and confusing =\

The RS is just porn :P

was that the mk2?? i thought his old focus 1.6 (115ps) was rather fast but this newer one is a different engine altogether and i think is a bit too eco and restricted probably could go faster if they wanted it to.....

it defiantely doesnt have the heart of a zr but the build quality is very good.....i like the dash its very user friendly but then again i did have fiesta as a courtesy car for 2 weeks previous and theyre identical.
