Ford introduces the sporty Zetec S to
its acclaimed all-new Focus line up. Developed specifically for UK
customers, Zetec S combines sporty styling with the debut of the
1.6-litre 180PS EcoBoost petrol engine.
Based on the existing Zetec model, it
adds a full sports styling kit including unique front and rear spoilers
with lower sill extensions and 17in alloy wheels together with sports
suspension featuring stiffened springs and dampers, aluminium-style
sports pedals, rear LED tail lamps and Ford Power starter button.
Anthony Ireson, Ford Britain marketing
director, said: "Zetec S models have always been popular with UK
customers and so we are delighted to welcome our new Focus Zetec S to
the range. With sporty exterior body styling and impressive performance
and economy, this latest addition is set to be another showroom hit."
The Ford Focus Zetec S is available now
in five-door bodystyle with estate to follow in February 2012, and is
offered with a choice of four engines including the 1.6-litre 180PS
EcoBoost turbo-charged petrol engine which has a top speed of 138mph,
reaches 0-62mph in just 7.9sec and emits only 139g/km CO2.
Any Focus Zetec S chosen with this engine or the 1.6-litre 115PS TDCi
will carry the ECOnetic Technology badge, as they benefit from auto
start-stop, Ford ECO mode, gear shift indicator, active grille shutter
and smart regenerative charging.
The 1.6-litre 125PS Ti-VCT petrol and
the 2.0-litre 163PS TDCi are also available and can be specified with
either manual or PowerShift automatic transmission.
At £18,745 on the road the Focus Zetec
S is priced just £1,250 above the equivalent Zetec derivative, which
represents outstanding value, as if purchased separately, the additional
features would add over £1,700. The Zetec S and Titanium are
identically priced so customers can choose either sport or luxury at the
same price point.
