2012 Ford Focus CRASH TEST
http://www.youcar.tv The rating of the Ford Focus has been upgraded from 2011 to 2012. The car is unchanged and test results have been carried over from the previous year. The 2012 rating reflects the performance of the Focus against Euro NCAP's latest requirements. Adult occupant The passenger compartment of the new Focus remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of all body regions for the front passenger, and for all body regions except the lower legs of the driver, protection of which was adequate. Ford demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to the knees and femurs of occupants of diiferent sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. Protection of the pelvis was adequate in the side barrier test and was good for all other body regions. In the more severe side pole test, chest protection was rated as marginal but was otherwise good or adequate. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear impact. Child occupant The Focus scored the maximum points available for the protection of the 3 year child in the frontal and side impact tests, and lost only a fraction of a point for the 18 month infant. A switch is available as an option which disables the passenger airbag, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. The test cars were not equipped with the switch and no assessment was done. Labels warning of using a rearward-facing child restraint in that seating position without first disabling the airbag were not available in all European languages. Pedestrian The protection provided by the bumper to the legs of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good. The front edge of the bumper offered good protection in all areas tested. In most areas likely to be struck by a child's head the bonnet offered good protection. While protection of an adult's head was also good in places most areas tested were rated as poor or marginal.





Volvo V40 vs. Ford Focus
De Volvo V40 is een spraakmakende nieuwkomer. Hoe doet hij het tegen de Ford Focus, die de laatste anderhalf jaar elke test in AutoWeek waarin hij meedeed, won? We zetten een T3 tegen een even sterke 1.6 EcoBoost. Dezelfde motor in totaal andere verpakkingen.





2012 Ford Focus Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Do you like European car design? If so you'll like the new Ford Focus because it is part of Ford's global plan to design and the build the same car for the entire world. That means the same basic Focus you can buy at your local Ford Dealership will also be for sale in Europe and Asia. Think of it as Global design for a worldwide market place. It also means that Ford spends less money developing and building the new Focus. Developed and tuned in Germany the new Focus is tuned to storm the Autobahn and still get decent economy numbers. With an inline-4 cylinder engine that gets 160 the Focus comes with either a 5 speed manual transmission or a 6-speed duel clutch automatic. A duel clutch automatic is usually found on much more expensive cars but the Focus is no longer just a inexpensive economy car but instead a more European and Premium small car.
