2019 Ford Focus Active

2019 Ford Focus Active Hatch

The All- New Ford Focus Active Hatch is a model with a difference and offers plenty of modern kit, safety and style.

Let’s get straight to what powers the new Crossover Hatch: so it’s the zippy new 1.5-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine that delivers the goods, and it is complemented by a very good 8-speed automatic transmission with a rotary gear shift dial for the “cool factor” – paddle-shifters are also present.  Ford EcoBoost engine technology delivers performance that’s smooth, responsive and rewarding; but it’s also boasting smart technology like its cylinder deactivation technology where one of the four cylinders shut down when torque demand is low – like on the highway.  When you need more torque the cylinder flicks into operation again to give you all the power you need.  Fuel economy for the taller Focus Active models is good, and will impress you with a combined fuel cycle of less than 7 litres/100 km.

Also under the all-new 2019 Ford Focus Active hatch is a series of smart technologies that are designed to protect you, your family and other road users.  For example, Active Braking and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection can warn you of a potential collision – and even apply the brakes automatically if you don’t react in time.  This advanced safety technology saves lives and any embarrassing insurance claims!

2019 Ford Focus Active Interior

Inside the new Ford Focus Active models the interior is much the same as in any of the other 2019 Ford Focus cars.  The excellent seating comfort and space is backed up by a sophisticated cabin feel -one that continued to grow on you after the first few drives.  A change in the dash layout sees a simpler, cleaner layout, with the classy touch screen standing proud in the upper-middle section of the dash board.  Ford Focus Active models come with plenty of interior features – features that make the journey more entertaining and enjoyable, not to mention informed and connected.  The 8-inch touchscreen is the gateway to all of the audio and communication features.  Voice Control can also be used to sweep between features.  Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Applink, Bluetooth, phone and audio streaming, DAB+ Digital Radio, satellite navigation, a six-speaker sound system, WiFi Hotspot, wireless phone charging, 2 x USB ports, SYNC3 Voice Control, 12 V power outlets front and rear, dual-zone climate control, illuminated vanity mirrors, power windows front and rear, rain sensing wipers, front and side curtain airbags, cruise control, Hill Launch Assist, paddle shifters, a rear-view camera, four-way front seat adjustment and front seat lumbar support are all features that will make life in the new Focus Active a pleasant experience.

Ready for its new owner, the Ford Focus Active models are all set-up to cater to the needs of a fast-paced lifestyle that includes outdoor excursions and fun weekends away.  It would have to be the Active model over all other Focus models that has the feeling of being perfectly set up for the adventurous small family who love doing stuff and getting their hands dirty.

On the road the Ford Focus Active Hatch is very well balanced considering the extra height.  Steering is nicely weighted and accurate, while any hint of body roll is superbly managed.  Ford’s Focus line-up boasts a nice ride that soaks up the bumps well.  Power is delivered responsively, and the 134 kW motor is a quick motor when poked along.

Luggage space is good and, of course, the split folding rear seats provide more cargo-carrying ability should the need arise.

The new Ford Focus Active is defined from its siblings by its taller ride height (30 mm higher at the front, 34 mm higher at the rear), larger wheel archers, unique bumper shape and other important Active detailing that includes features like scuff plates, skid plates, roof rails and other Active accessories.

All-in-all a very nice drive that’s not too expensive: the brand new Ford Focus Active being a crossover winner on all accounts.
