But recently it’s had to fend off competition from the Vauxhall Astra, Volkswagen Golf, and many, many more besides. So Ford really has pulled out all the stops for the fourth generation of Focus, as John McIlroy explains… More Auto Express videos New Audi A1 revealed: https://aex.ae/2yKe2QQ New Volvo V60 revealed: https://aex.ae/2yNUXgL Car reviews playlist: http://aex.ae/2gY4ViX More on AutoExpress.co.uk Top 10 hatchbacks 2018: http://aex.ae/2DfigyA Top 10 family cars 2018: http://aex.ae/1K6qbPP 2018 New Car Awards shortlist: https://aex.ae/2rM61nN Follow us Twitter: https://twitter.com/AutoExpress Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AutoExpress Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/autoexpress

Additional technologies designed to help Focus drivers avoid accidents and distraction include: Evasive Steering Assist, designed to operate at city and motorway speeds, which uses radar and a camera to detect slower-moving and stationary vehicles ahead and provides steering support to enable drivers to manoeuvre around a vehicle if a collision is imminent Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, which warns drivers reversing out of a parking space of vehicles that may soon be crossing behind them and can for the first time now apply the brakes to avoid or mitigate the effects of collisions if drivers do not respond to warnings Rear wide-view camera, which offers a near-180 degree view to the rear of the vehicle for improved visibility when reversing from parking spaces or driveways Wrong Way Alert, first available for customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, which uses a windscreen mounted camera and information from the car's navigation system to provide drivers with audible and visual warnings when driving through two "No Entry" signs on a motorway ramp Ford MyKey, which allows owners to programme a key for younger drivers that can inhibit incoming phone calls; restrict top speed; prevent deactivation of driver assistance and safety features; reduce audio system maximum volume, and disable the audio system altogether if occupants are not using seatbelts Auto INTERIOR ''SUBSCRIBE NOW''
DEARBORN, Mich., May 24, 2018 – Ford is making its iconic F-150 Raptor – the ultimate high-performance off-road pickup – even better with upgraded technology including class-exclusive, electronically controlled FOX™ shocks, new Trail Control™ and all-new Recaro sport seats. The upgrades are focused on key components that have made F-150 Raptor the benchmark in off-road trucks for an even tougher, smarter, more capable trail runner. “Raptor’s success is rooted in its incredible suspension, superb vehicle control and the confidence the truck instills in its owners,” said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs. “Upgrades to the 2019 F-150 Raptor have improved all three to new levels that the competition will have to benchmark – again.” While Raptor has plenty of torque and horsepower, building a high-performance off-road truck isn’t just about engine power – it’s also about the suspension. Raptor’s suspension upgrades make it even more capable of clawing away at the terrain. To enhance Raptor’s already proven internal bypass shocks, Ford Performance worked directly with FOX to develop all-new electronically controlled Live Valve technology for the new platform that continuously adjusts damping in real-time. This class-exclusive setup uses sensors in the suspension and body to maximize comfort, handling and bottom-out resistance. “By automatically varying compression rates, Raptor can now make the most of its suspension travel of 13 inches at the front and 13.9 inches at the rear,” said Salenbauch. “The 2019 Raptor is not just more capable off-road. It’s smarter.” Paired with Raptor’s Terrain Management System™, Live Valve suspension technology can increase the truck’s high-speed off-road capability while also enabling smooth on-road driving performance. “Not many trucks need sensors to detect when you are midair,” said Salenbauch. “Raptor sets the dampers to full stiffness to help smooth shock performance as the truck lands.” Low-speed performance off-road is also improved. New Trail Control helps F-150 Raptor drivers navigate challenging conditions. It’s like cruise control for low-speed, rugged terrain, automatically adjusting power and braking to each individual wheel to allow drivers to focus on steering over rugged terrain. Trail Control can be activated at speeds from 1 mph up to 20 mph depending on driveline position. The system makes everything easier – from driving on a simple two-track trail to traversing a rocky hill climb. Not only can Trail Control automatically draw significant engine torque to overcome steep obstacles, it can individually brake the wheels so the truck comes down smoothly on the other side. Raptor drivers now have enhanced seats to help keep them firmly in place for improved confidence at low and high speeds. All-new Recaro sport seats provide aggressive support with generous bolstering in the seat back and cushion. This available seat design features blue Alcantara inserts and accent stitching inspired by the Light Speed-colored interior of the Ford GT supercar. Raptor’s aggressive exterior gets even more intense for 2019 with eye-catching new colors including Ford Performance Blue, Velocity Blue and Agate Black. An enhanced rear appliqué and available newly designed beadlock-capable wheels round out the new look. The upgraded 2019 F-150 Raptor will be built at Dearborn Truck Plant. It goes on sale in late 2018. ============================================== ► Please contact this email if you have any copyright issues: firstname.lastname@example.org ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ► If you love cars you should subscribe now to Auto TV the world famous automotive channel: https://goo.gl/SGPqjc #newcars #autotv #cartv #topcar #topsuv

The fourth generation of the Focus has grown in size but not in weight, aiming to correct one of its predecessor’s biggest flaws with a roomy cabin that offers class-leading comfort for the rear passengers.
In addition, the dashboard is more ergonomic than ever, featuring good quality plastics, a modern infotainment system in the form of the SYNC3 and a cleaner look. Tech features are plenty and include everything from active cruise control with lane keep assist to automatic parking, where the driver lets the car park itself.
More expensive models can be specified with an adaptive suspension that features Ford’s pothole detection system, which senses when a wheel is about to hit a pothole and adjusts the suspension travel accordingly, thus improving ride comfort even on badly-surfaced roads.
The engine range includes both petrol and diesel units, while customers will be offered the choice between a six-speed manual or a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Petrol models include the 1.0-liter EcoBoost in 85 PS (83 HP), 100 PS (98 HP) and 125 PS (123 HP) guises and the 1.5-liter EcoBoost with either 150 PS (148 HP) or 182 PS (179 HP).
Diesel models get a 1.5-liter EcoBlue unit with either 95 PS (93 HP) or 120 PS (118 HP) and a 2.0-liter EcoBlue engine with 150 PS (148 HP) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque.
The fourth-generation model, which will start at a UK price of £17,930? Ford claims the new car offers best-in-class cabin space, driving dynamics and aerodynamics – which helps deliver a 12 per cent cut in fuel consumption – and makes big advances in driver assistance systems and connectivity.
There’s a broad choice of models: in addition to the five-door hatch, Ford will sell a stylish but capacious estate, an SUV-inspired Active version, plus luxurious Vignale and sporty ST-Line trims.
For 2018, Ford is keen to push the Focus into more bodystyles and niches, in an attempt to hoover up more buyers tempted to stop buying hatchbacks in favour of crossovers and SUVs.
