Glad its not just me.
Sat here with after-sun on my neck! Feeling a bit hot and uncomfortable  lol   :(

#378511 Saw One!

Posted by 2011fiesta on 25 June 2014 - 09:03 PM

It looks like it was designed for the Asian market. I don't like it at all.

 

Completely agree. Can't remember if I read when it was first designed that it would only be sold to Asian markets - might have just totally made that up though lol.

 

I personally wouldn't buy it. The new Kuga is nicer - but it's 3 piece Focus-style grille looks odd. And as we know the Focus is getting a face lift to bring it in line with the new face of Ford (i.e new Fiesta / pending new Mondeo (current US Fusion) - so maybe the new Kuga will get refreshed in a year or two too.

 

The all new Ford Edge SUV (larger than the Kuga) has been revealed today - check out FordEU & Ford (US) YouTube channels for vids.

#352615 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

Posted by 2011fiesta on 10 April 2014 - 06:45 PM

New York Auto Show 2014 has brought new face Focus photos to light...

 

The white version shows off the new lines a little better:

2015-Ford-Focus-hatchback-side-motion-vi

 

 

2015-Ford-Focus-hatchback-rear-side-moti

 

And the Electric focus has been face lifted too:      (EDIT: The electric version has had a new grille and lower grille added, but its not been fully face-lifted - hence still having the older style head lights)

Again the Electic model's interior hasn't fully been refreshed either - its has the newer centre, but still has the older steering wheel - (according to these pics anyway).

And the trio shot  (Red = electric  /  White = standard hatch  /  Blue = standard saloon (not available here :( ) :13739110625_7480f6f838_b.jpg

You can see how much sharper the fully facelifted focus' (white & blue) look compared to their predecessor's face (the red one)




#344583 Facelift Focus - Mk3.5

Posted by 2011fiesta on 18 March 2014 - 11:02 PM

I'm suprised at the positive comments towards the focus saloon picutre I posted - I thought I was the only one that liked them lol.

Shame they don't at least give us the option of the 4 door saloon focus.

 

I know small saloons aren't popular but theres a fair few on UK roads, with some new ones only appearing over the last few years even -we've got the Chevy Cruze saloon, Suzuki Kizashi saloon, VW Jetta (basically a Golf saloon), Audi A3 saloon. Skoda Rapid is a hatch back but shaped like a small saloon, and Chrysler Sebring although no longer available here, has been relauched as the Chyrsler 200 stateside, so could possibly show its face here eventually too.

Few more pics for the fans :P

I'll stop now. ;)

...erm, yeah, so to stay on topic - now the Focus mk3.5 hatch has been revealed, I'm looking forward to seeing the 3.5 saloon, (even though we won't get it :( lol)

#343612 Facelift Focus - Mk3.5

Posted by 2011fiesta on 16 March 2014 - 07:57 PM

Maybe they should bring out a sedan ?

 

They do a sedan of the mk3 Focus, so the 3.5 will be in sedan form too - America gets is, Australia gets it, China too, probably parts of mainland Europe gets it - even Ireland gets it - yes that close, but the UK, no - as small saloons don't sell well here :(

 

I've always wanted the mk3 focus saloon and can only imagine the 3.5 saloon will look better again.
The rear just looks better - espeically the tail lights as they look mean, and not dopey like the hatch's.

(must admit this isn't the most flattering angle of the saloon, and the Titaniums look even better with the rear deck lid spoilers on)

You may be surprised to hear there's fiesta mk7 and mk 7.5 saloons out there too   :)

#305448 1.4 Titanium Auto ... 25 Mpg - Why?

Posted by 2011fiesta on 14 November 2013 - 06:31 PM

Hello fellow auto owner. Also to bare in mind is pre 2012/3 fiestas have an old school 4 speed automatic which isn't know for good fuel economy.

 

My mpgs fall through the floor during these winter months when doing short city stop & go commutes from a cold start. As James has said it should improve over time, and as daft as it sounds my mpg is much better in the summer months.

 

To be honest though if you're looking for good fuel economy from the 1.4 petrol 4-speed fiesta, you're going to need a steep decline, and a strong tail wind lol.

 

Having said that I think my best ever reading was something like 48mpg - but that was on a single journey, rather than an average over a whole tank of fuel. 

 

Post facelift (auto) fiestas now come with Ford's Powershift, a 6 speed twin clutch automated manual gearbox which gives much better mpgs than it's predessor.
