#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.

Turned up at work this morning and everyone I spoke to was like "Oh, someone's caught the sun!".

 

Been to FF two years on the trot now and both have been glorious weather!

 

On speaking with Mark/Steve/Nathan yesterday, I reckon we should drum up some interest for next year to try and make it the best yet. Think about it, potentially everyone who was there can join this forum: it's a welcome environment for Fords both old or new, standard or modified etc. It's the one opportunity in the year for a large meet for all members :)

 

 

Maybe some FOC flyers under wipers too to dish out or for people to pick up.

Yeah people will see all the various club names when there, but if they then get home and have a web address on a flyer they'll be more likely to browse the forum and potentially join, and even become a supporter once they see what a friendly and helpful place this is.

 

Maybe set times when all FOC members will actually be at the FOC stand would be an idea too. Say 10.00, 12.00, & 14.00 etc, as for example I saw a few FOC cars I recognised, but never actually met the members who own them.

 

If its all planned earlier on this time I'll probably book the Monday off work so I can stay overnight on the Sunday, as well as the Saturday - (then I'll have more time to bore inath and jimrex about powershifts and american fords ;)  )

 

Oh and a pitch on the right as you come in against all those tall trees would suit me down to the ground, shade wise.  :lol:

 

 

Paul :)

Cheers mate, it was my first 'long drive' in the Fez, and it was great, returning 51.8mpg.
Happy days, although the sun got my neck again, almost same colour as the car lol

 

I could feel my neck burning too - thought it was just me haha

Looks Really good there some great pictures.

 

I am going to have to be there next year.... at least i now have a year to get my car finished and ready :P

 

I only decided to go on Friday night, so quickly booked a hotel and set off on Saturday afternoon. I've never been and regretted not going last year - plus this may have been the first and last time my fiesta goes, (not that it was on show - too dirty to show its face haha).
