New 2012 Ford Focus
2012 Ford Focus will offer advanced new airbags when it goes on sale in early 2011.
The new driver front airbag offers enhanced chest protection.
The new driver front airbag offers enhanced "chest protection" technology designed to help reduce chest and rib injuries, said Ford in a statement. The front passenger airbag on the 2012 Ford Focus will "help enhance head and neck protection by better matching deployment force with occupant size," said Ford.
One of the best examples of that is the 2012 Ford Focus. We’ve already seen the standard car, but now the hatchback performance model is being previewed with the Focus ST showcar.
The headlights and fascia have lost the nice detailing that is apparent on the production sedan Focus. The interior doesn’t disappoint either, with a modern, sporty look befitting of the Focus ST’s performance intentions. Top notch? Definitely.
Ford’s EcoBoost powertrain has made waves for its performance and attributes of high power generation while still returning good fuel economy figures.
We’ve witnessed that for ourselves on numerous test vehicles. The benefit for the V-6 EcoBoost models is V-8 power with V-6 fuel economy.
Here, the Focus ST has a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder making 247 horsepower. The Focus ST will be the hottest Focus hatchback until the new RS arrives.
