Ford Focus is keeping out the winter blues with new models, equipment and a brace of offers to get Spring customers off to a bright start.
Focusing On Value For Money
The emphasis is on value for money across the Ford Focus range this Spring. Zero per cent finance is now available on most Ford Focus models, over 36 months, with a 35 per cent deposit, with low rate finance also available from 5.9 per cent, for no minimum deposit.
Space And Pace With New Focus ST Estate
The sporty Ford Focus ST170 line-up features an estate model from January 2003, priced from £17,245 on the road. For £750 more than a five-door, Focus ST estate features all the same refined ST sports styling and equipment, but offers up to 1,060 litres of extra loadspace.
All this space is not at the expense of pace though, as Focus ST estate reaches 0-62mph just a fraction after the five-door ST, in 9.0 seconds, and boasts a top speed of 133mph. Ownership costs are still affordable thanks to combined fuel economy of 31.0mpg and CO2 emissions of 218g/km.
Making it even easier on the pocket, Ford Focus ST170 also attracts one year’s free insurance (25 years and over) and zero per cent finance.
High-Tech Music Solution With Ford Focus MP3
Those customers struggling with too many CDs can now benefit from the latest special edition Ford Focus MP3, which can play MP3 files from your own tailored music CDs.
Focus MP3 is based on a 1.8 Zetec three-door, with the addition of air-conditioning, rear spoiler, 17-inch alloy wheels and a 6000 series MP3 compatible CD player and is available now, priced from £11,995 on the road.
LX Value Upped With New Studio
The value-for-money 1.4-litre, three-door Focus Studio, priced at £9,995 on the road, will replace the Focus Flight from February.
Despite a £1,150 saving over the 1.4 LX, Studio maintains a high comfort specification, including ABS, remote central locking and Quickclear heated windscreen.
Better Stopping With ABS As Standard
Keeping the Focus range competitive, all models now feature anti-lock brakes (ABS) as standard. Previously, ABS was part of a £500 Reflex Pack, an option on all models except 2.0-litre petrol and TDCi. The other component in this option pack - front seat side airbags - will continue to be offered as an option, priced £150.
All the offers listed are available from 1 February - 31 March 2003.
