All-conquering Focus has impressed with each model but examined – and now we pattern a mid-range diesel with the automated gearbox. Is that this the one to go for? Legend has it that Enzo Ferrari as soon as stated that with a Ferrari you purchase an engine, and the remainder you get totally free. Maybe the other is true of the all-new, fourth-generation Focus – you purchase an amazing chassis, and it doesn’t actually matter what else there’s.That’s considerably flippant, after all, as early assessments of various variations are revealing fairly completely different characters relying on the automotive’s propulsion and trim – but with that nice chassis fortunately remaining a relentless. The newest model of the Focus to reach at Autocar HQ for check is that this 1.5-litre diesel model. It’s the mid-range of three diesels, a 94bhp 1.5 sits under this 118bhp model and a 148bhp 2.Zero-litre above it. You may have it with both a six-speed guide or eight-speed computerized gearbox, the latter examined right here. No matter gearbox or model of the 1.5-litre diesel you go for (and, let’s be sincere, a diesel Focus nonetheless holds big enchantment for thus many automotive patrons who cowl the sorts of distances such five-door hatchbacks have all the time relished), you do get the ‘lesser’ of the 2 rear suspension choices, a torsion beam, the multi-link reserved for the two.Zero-litre range-topper.
