The range of gasoline engines will change. There will be four of them: 1.4; 1.6 (two options) and 2.0 liters. The more powerful of the 1.6-liter engines - with variable valve timing. It was decided to install a modern turbodiesel with a working volume of 1.8 liters on Russian “Fords”. The list of additional equipment will expand significantly. The list of works on adapting the machine to Russian conditions includes facilitating a cold start, a reinforced heater, additional engine protection, anti-gravel processing of thresholds, overcoming ford. Sorry, nothing is said about the increase in ride height.

The world of cars got bored, new things sometimes yawn, marketers of eminent companies go out of their way to prove to a bewildered consumer that three identical cars with different nameplates are three different models. Integration, globalization, cost reduction - where to get away from it. Only here, bright, original cars appear less and less. Of course, we are not talking about expensive, low-volume cars. And build in a row a modern golf class: are there many written beauties or originals? Meet, of course, but infrequently. So one more has become less.

New “Focus”! For Russia, its appearance is an event more significant than the start of competitors, classmates. Those are one hundred percent foreign, and this one is almost ours. The predecessor is collected near St. Petersburg, sold on almost every corner. In addition, it was announced that in the middle of next year, they will start making and selling a new product in our country. So the new Ford has received increased attention from the domestic journalistic fraternity, which means more meticulous “digging in the guts”, more flattering praises and … more toxic criticism. The burden of popularity, you know.

There was another reason why I was eager to quickly look, feel, ride. This reason is today's “Focus”, which now can rightfully be called old. In my opinion, it was the same car that stood out sharply from a number of classmates. I don’t consider him handsome, but there’s more than enough originality, even now, when I’ve become familiar. And six years ago! I remember the first impression of the presentation: “Is it a Ford?” Will it be mass-produced? Millions of copies?”Then the biodesign was tattered into small pieces by a sharpened“new face”, and a serious emotional blow was dealt to the psyche of the potential consumer. And only then, having survived the first shock, I began to realize that that Focus was not only an original, but also a very perfect car: with new engineering solutions, with good driving performance, with a spacious, comfortable body.

No wonder they say that the shell does not fall twice into one funnel. Looking at the new Focus, I saw a stylish, attractive, fast-moving, but very similar to Focus C-max car. In a cozy interior flashed the features of "Mondeo". There was no doubt that before us is another representative of the family of modern "Fords". As there was, alas, no special emotions and enthusiasm.

In motion, the car habits reminded itself of the former. Confidently holds the road, reacts quickly enough to the driver’s commands, rather tight suspensions provide, nevertheless, a decent level of comfort. The new Focus cannot be called clockwork or incendiary - to ride it is more convenient than interesting.

The driver’s workplace could be attributed to obvious successes - it has become even more spacious, even more convenient, and the adjustment ranges are even wider. Good insulation. But the back seat was less than expected. But the trunk is capacious, and this is important - compatriots like to go to the cottage. With basins, boards, seedlings and a fixed cat. Now all this will go not only in the open space (the car has become larger) and comfort (modified suspension, new finishing materials), but also safe. There is a complete set of modern systems: ABS, stabilization system, safe body structure, belts, pillows and much more.

And then there was a technical presentation, where it became clear why the new “Focus” in terms of driving sensations is similar to the old one. The fact is that the suspension of the previous Focus moved to the new car, naturally with some changes. Why reinvent what has already proven itself? The suspension was modified primarily by two parameters - comfort and precision control. This work, in my opinion, was completely successful. But don’t think, for God's sake, that the new “Focus” is a modernization of the old. Pendants are perhaps the only thing inherited.

The designer’s performance was also memorable: with a perfect hand movement, he emphasized one or another stamping on the body, drew attention to the glass line, and spoke about the elaboration of details. Just said nothing about the perception of the car at all. And what can I say - in front of us is another one of the “Ford” family: attractive, fast-moving, sporty, but already similar to someone, and therefore not original.
