It's a 115 bhp. Both more powerful and more torque than the 1.6 petrol in the fez. But probably more due the extra weight a slightly slower 0-60 time. But if it feels anything like the fez in terms of engine feel then I'll be very happy with it.
This will be the first time I've driven a diesel since passing my test back in 2001. And experience of that diesel Corsa led me to expect a heavier feel to the controls. Not a bit of it! Yesterday when I was sitting in it and playing with the interior I noticed that the clutch pedal was actually lighter than the clutch in my petrol fez.
Plus from an ergonomic point of view, one thing that has always really annoyed me about the fez is that in pretty much any driving position the steering wheel blocks the "60-70mph" part of the speedo... I sat in the drivers seat in the Focus and that was the first thing I looked for. Not a bit of it.
I think I'm going to enjoy this car
Well welcome to the dark side (bright side in ur case but yeah). Im going to get harassed for this like but the focus seems more of a blokes car than the fiesta its less fiddley if you know what i mean and more able to be thrown about like a rag doll lol. On the seating postion though did you ever try maybe moving the seat down or the wheel up
