Ford Focus Estate (2011–2014)
The Ford Focus estate is both dynamic and practical offering the extra space and flexibility customers expect.
4,556mm x 1,858mm x 1,482mm.
Compared to the five-door it is 20cm longer, has 10cm greater width between the wheel arches and a maximum load capacity of 1,502 litres (in two-seat mode). The estate therefore provides generous interior accommodation for both passengers and their luggage.
Luggage capacity 476 litres seats up, 1,502 litres seats down.
The Focus estate brings the same class leading levels of technologies as that of the five-door, with many of the features new to the mainstream medium car market. These include the optional £750 Driver Assistance Pack comprising seven advanced technologies – Active City Stop, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Aid, Blind Spot Information System, Auto High Beam and Driver Alert.
The estate is also available with the same choice of low-CO2 powertrain options. These include the 1.6-litre TDCi 115PS engine which comes equipped with standard Auto-Start-Stop and has CO2 emissions starting at just 109g/km. Sales of this powertrain account for 43 per cent of all-new Focus in the UK.
The new Ford Focus range also includes the state-of-the-art new 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost 150PS turbo-charged direct injection petrol engine, which debuted on the C-MAX last year. This is one of a new generation of global, downsized, high-efficiency, low-CO2 petrol engines which deliver the strong low-end torque and responsive performance of a large capacity engine, but with the size, weight and fuel economy of a much smaller unit.
Priced from £17,100 on-the-road, the all-new Focus estate comes with over £1,000 additional standard equipment versus the equivalent outgoing model, including Bluetooth and voice control, USB connection, DAB, Thatcham Category 1 alarm, aluminium roof rails, tonneau cover, driver lumbar adjust and torque vectoring.
Ford announced that it will be fitting new 1.0 Ecoboost engines to the 1,000 out-of-warranty Fiesta, Focus and Tourneo Connect models the company had previously refused to re-engine when the engines failed due to loss of coolant (some cars for a 2nd time). 600,000 1.0 EcoBoosts have been produced. 44,000 have had their turbo-to-expansion tank degas pipes replaced as a TSB 'service action'. But 2,000 suffered actual engine failure. Of these, 1,000 have had their engines replaced free of charge, but the other 1,000 had not. Ford rectified this situation on 1-10-2018.
