The new Ford Focus Zetec S 0

The all new Ford Focus Zetec S is a sportier version of the standard Focus. It offers many practicalities of what the normal Focus can but with extra speed and performance. In our article today we take a look at the car and discuss exactly why it could be a hit on the UK car market.

Ecoboost engine

The car has the all new Ecoboost engine which has a 1.6 litre capacity. It is able to reach a maximum speed of 138 MPH and hit 0 – 60 MPH in 7.9 seconds. The car offers a wonderfully engaging drive with plenty of excitement.


 Being a Ford Focus, you can expect it to be very economical. It can achieve 47.1 MPG and emit just 139 of C02 emissions.  Economy is a major part of all new cars being released, even sports cars. Don’t expect any less with the sporty version of the Focus.

Looks modified

The Ford Focus Zetec S has a great looking body kit to match it’s sporty performance. The alloy wheels look very stylish and stand out. The sports suspension gives the car a wonderful balance and allows the car to take corners at speed.  Despite the sportier suspension, the ride is still comfortable enough for a family. The exhaust system has also been modified, producing a great sound when high revs are reached.

One Ford

This car is developed for British roads and catered for our market only. This is a rarity for Ford, adopting a “One Ford” policy whereby all cars around the world have the same setup.


The car’s price will start from £18,745. This is quite a reasonable price, as there isn’t many small hatchbacks on the road that are this fun to drive. The Ford Zetec S’s closet rival is the Vauxhall Astra GTC 1.6i SRI. This will cost £22,480, making the Ford better value for money on many fronts.

The Ford Focus Zetec S offers a perfect balance of having a family car which is also fun to drive at the same time. Family’s credentials are enhanced with the car’s great safety equipment. The upcoming Ford Focus ST is a lot more powerful, with running costs and the actual price of the car being a lot more expensive. We believe that if it’s a normal family road car which you require, the Zetec S gives all of that plus more
