Ford releases greenest ever petrol Focus

JonathanAugust 19, 2013

At UK Carline we only stock the best manufacturers in the industry and are pleased to supply more than 400 Ford models as part of our exclusive and carefully-selected car leasing collection.

The American producer has long affirmed itself as one of the most reliable and popular brands in a very competitive market. However, more recently Ford has invested time and money into building cars and vans that are as eco-friendly as they are trustworthy.

It released the new ultra-efficient version of the Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost model, which will be the first petrol family car in Europe to offer 99g/km CO2 emissions. The car has also produced 67.5 mpg in tests which can be attributed to its specially calibrated 100PS version of Ford’s award-winning engine. Outstanding in every area, the EcoBoost will become the company’s most fuel-efficient family car when it goes on sale in 2014.

The upcoming Ford Focus will sport the brand’s latest ECOnetic Technology, which includes the ultra-low rolling resistance tyres, accompanied by aerodynamics under the car and revised gearing, which all help to deliver the company’s most fuel-efficient model to date.

Barb Samardzich, European product development vice president said: “Just a couple of years ago few would have thought that a medium-sized petrol car could break the 100g/km CO2 barrier.

“Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has a habit of taking expectations of what a petrol engine can deliver and turning them upside down.”

The model is more powerful than the original Ford Focus due to the incorporation of the engine which has won the accolade of International Engine of the Year in both 2013 and 2012. It will be the third Ford vehicle to carry the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine which has also been introduced in the Fiesta, B-MAX, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX last year.

UK Carline offers a number of Ford cars accompanied by competitive car leasing contracts to get you behind the wheel of some of the best vehicles with an affordable deal and world-class customer service.
