A great day out yesterday

The New Ford Focus launch to the dealers, what a great car and packed with new features I had never heard of.

Torque vectoring control - no i hadn't heard about it either, but a great safety feature, designed to improve traction, roadholding and agility when cornering. to us laymen it will adapt the maximum grip you have at each wheel.
Not just making it safer but gives you a better driving experience - and it is standard.

Blind spot information system is available as an option - great for the motorway, when you look in the mirror to change lane, it will illuminate to tell you that there could be another vehicle in your blind spot.

And a range of new engines, with improved power and fuel economy, not the two things you would normally hear in the same sentence.

I will admit i wasn't that excited about this car until yesterday, when i saw it and experienced it for myself, this is a car to get excited about, it was like when the first Focus came along to replace the Escort all over again.

And the new Estate version, fantastic, but I will save that for another day. If you want to come and get a preview of this new car before the public launch on March 11th let me know I may be able to help.

More New Focus information coming every day as i get the news myself.
