#334001 Ford Focus High Mpg And Low Car Tax

Posted by stuartr26 on 19 February 2014 - 11:15 AM

I've got a 13 plate Focus which I got from new last year. It's a 1.0 ecoboost 125ps. It's got plenty of power and returns between 40-45mpg mainly on B roads and around town. Tax is only £30 a year but I think it is only £20 on the 100ps. Can't fault the car so far and I've had it for 11 months and done around 8500 miles I think.

:-) sounds cool, I added u as a friend stuart,


did you choose the premium sound pack




Nah just the standard that comes with the Tit X - don't know how much difference there is between the two options but I didn't want to wait any longer for my car to be ready!

silly question I know lol but years ago higher models often were built better and included a "Higher level of Sound insulation over bla bla model"


Has anything changed with the 1.6 tdci 115 (vs my may 2012 1.6 tdci) have they changed anything with the gearbox etc etc etc






Honestly couldn't tell you, I have the ecoboost 1.0 125ps

Thanks for the replies :-)


Iam excited


When I Rang the dealer it still only had an order number  and not a chassis number :-(   (last week)


Does the higher models have more sound insulation etc than the lower models etc,




I'm not sure if it better insulated but I know the sound is a lot better than on the old standard radio/CD with old Fiesta's!

Nice to see some more Titanium Xs in Ink Blue being picked.


I was amazed when looking at the colours, how few people have it. I think the brochure does it no justice.


In the flesh it is such a deep and rich blue, looks so nice. Really nice to have a "coloured" car again after my previous black and grey choices too :)


My dealer had a Focus MK3 in Ink Blue in the showroom when I went to see about getting a Midnight Sky Focus. When I saw it, it was a case of scratch that, I want that colour!


Totally agree! It looks great on the Focus, better than it did on my previous Fiesta. Not even a little bit of snow can make it look bad to me at the moment  ;)

Just joined and took delivery of a Titanium X on Friday.


2.0 TDCI

Panther blk

Appearance pack

Sony sat nav


Ordered late Jan

Build date 21st Feb

Delivered 22nd Mar


Unfortunately, due to the snow, i have only managed 4 slow and steady miles since receiving it  :blink:


It looks fantastic inside and out. Seats are great, Ford sync with voice control works great, the missus loves the ambient lighting but i'm not too keen on the pink  :unsure:


Looking forward to the snow clearing to really try it out.


You will love it mate, mobility or not. I got it as a company car driver. Upgraded from a 2.0 TDCi Mk 2.5 Titanium.


I picked up my Titanium X on Saturday, absolutely love it! Everything on it is great and it is brilliant to drive. Clocked over 100 miles in the first weekend, thoroughly enjoying it so far  :)


You won't be disappointed when you get it on the road!!
