The 2017 Ford Focus remains one of the world’s most popular nameplates, with an excellent balance of handsome styling, a fun driving character and high-tech features.
This model year saw the introduction of the SEL package, which included the 17-inch machined-aluminum wheels with black-painted pockets, fog lamps, black headlight bezels and a power moonroof. The Focus is available in either sedan or hatchback, with engine choice offerings that include a 2.0-litre Ti-VCT I-4 or 1.0-liter EcoBoost®, which can be optioned with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with available SelectShift® functionality.
The 2017 Ford Focus has the SYNC® 3 enhanced voice recognition available and entertainment system with AppLink™ and 911 Assist®, an 8-inch center LCD touch screen with available navigation and swiping and pinch-to-zoom capabilities. Two standard smart-charging USB ports are great for families on the go with energy-hungry devices.
The 2017 Focus also offers available technology like Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert, a lane-keeping system, heated steering wheel and LED signature lighting. Available active park assist uses the car’s 12 ultrasonic sensors to scan for suitable parking spaces and assist in backing into a spot while the driver controls the gear shifter, brake and accelerator pedals.
A new colour was introduced for the 2017 model called ‘White Gold.’
