Ford Focus ST Launched In South Africa

Ford Focus ST Launched In South Africa

The Ford Focus ST was launched locally, last week Tuesday, to a select number of journalists at the Aldo Scribante Race Track in Port Elizabeth. Since our last article on the Ford Focus ST in July we have been anticipating the local launch. The Ford Focus ST will go on sale this coming November and will be available in two trim options ST1 and ST3.

The Ford Focus ST comes equipped with a 184kW 2.0L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, which accelerates the new Ford Focus ST from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 248 km/h. All of this is achieved while maintaining a claimed fuel consumption of 7.2 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 169 g/km; a 20 percent improvement over the previous Focus ST.

The 2.0L turbocharged EcoBoost engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

As mentioned earlier the Ford Focus ST will be available in two trim packages, ST1 and ST3.

The ST1 trim package offers keyless start, a deflation detection system, cruise control and power 1-shot up/down driver front and rear windows to name just a few features.

The high-spec, ST3 model adds auto folding mirrors, keyless entry, Dual Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (DEATC), rain sensitive wipers and Bi-Xenon HID headlamps including LED daytime running lights, auto-dimming rear view mirror and automatic wipers, and Leather Recaro seats with 8-way adjustability and pull-out cushion, plus the newly developed and eye catching Recaro rear bench.

The Ford SYNC system, which is also available on Focus Trend and Sport derivatives, will be available on the Ford Focus ST. The Ford SYNC system is an advanced software platform that provides hands-free, voice-activated in-car connectivity. The SYNC system allows customers to connect a compatible mobile phone or digital media player to their Focus ST via Bluetooth®1 or USB.

The pricing for the Ford Focus ST models is as indicated below inclusive of Vat and CO2 tax.
