How Good Is The Focus 1.0l (125bhp) EcoBoost?

Recommended Posts

So you could safely say this little 1.0l 3 cylinder EcoBoost 125 engine in the Focus has lots of pulling power (torque) in low revs, mid revs and high revs?

Thanks again for all you comments in this post.

 

Very low down below about 1500rpm it doesn't have boost and if you try and pull away without revs it will vibrate a fair bit.

It's a good engine a good fit for the Focus. Has more character than the 1.5 ecoboost imo.

My parents had 3 great years with their 1.0 Focus estate, they only changed to a Kuga as they want to tow.

Please don't buy one without test driving though. Any Ford dealer should have a 1.0 Focus for you to try as they are so popular.

Mine will be two years old in February, but next week will have 50k miles (I'm a super commuter as they say).  For what it's worth....this Ecoboost car is the best car I've owned, not just the best Focus I've owned (of which I've owned 5). For my type of driving the relatively modest power isn't an issue, and I've been able to be in the high 40s for MPG and even broke 50 MPG in two tanks this summer (in America the EPA rating is 30/40). It's quiet and well behaved, and has all the normal Focus traits we all love in abundance.  Now my best friend has a white 2017 himself largely as a consequence of mine. 

In the US it's harder to find manual cars, and when you do find them on lots with the heavy rebates like I did you rarely get much of a choice in color.  I'd have preferred a white, red, or blue candy hatch but ended up with a magnetic gray sedan which looks upscale and handsome, but that's my only real issue. Also the manual cars are all minimal spec, and now you can't even get the appearance package without the auto. I'd have also really liked Sync3 and the touchscreen and heated seats and LED DRLs, but what can ya do?
