Ford Focus now available with mild hybrid tech

When full engine capacity is not needed, for example when cruising on the motorway, one of the engine’s three cylinders is automatically switched off. The mild hybrid tech extends the engine-off period when coasting to a stop: the engine will turn off at speeds of up to 16mph. Other updates to the Focus range for summer 2020 include the availability of a new full-width 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster. Later in the year, local hazard information will be displayed on it – such as obstacles or accidents on the road ahead. This includes standard wireless smartphone charging, front and rear parking sensors and Sync 3 infotainment with sat-nav.
