Good give us your feedback.I've lost interest as the turbo deisel will not be available in Malaysia. Anyway I must say it's an eye catcher and hope it does well in Bolehland.


ya..i am waiting for ur feedback too. base on what is written in oversea magazine, this model get a good rating.
my major concern will be the back seat whether can accomodate well a person of 188cm in height.
hopefully that they bring in will be 1.6 ecoboost

I actually checked out this model in OZ. It's a bit of a compact car. The back seat is ok,just nice,but not very large.In fact I found the driver postion a bit tight. The centre console is large and actually gave me a bit of a clusterfobic feel. At 188cm you'll find short on leg room at drivers position.But the car looked great. I believe the turbo diesel is dropped and the ecoboost is in. Good luck when you it,let us know about the car.

The REALdeal

For current Focus
I am 184cm for driver no issue at all, is more of a snug fit rather small. But ur rear passenger need to be shorter smile_tongue.gif

just visit Ford SD, sale gal said new focus will come in March or April...

suddenly my day is brighter!


I wouldn't bet on it just yet. Our stocks will come from the Thai plant, and I don't think they are starting production in Thailand that soon. The plant is simply not ready.

He is AW staff. smile.gif

Yes Ford has already said that the Focus for AP markets will come from Thailand from now on. So the Philippine Focus (old generation) will be the last one CKDed there.

Ford's Thai plant will only commence operations in the middle of this year. So exports will not commence till later. If I was looking to buy the new Focus, I think I will wait until they have begun production for at least 1 year. They had problems with the Fiesta. So I am sure that they will also have teething problems with the Focus production.
Regards,
Flee

The current FF does not give the clusterfobic feel at the drivers position without the large centre console.However most gadget guys will love the centre console, filled with switches and buttons.
