With the original Focus Wagon car series as the main sales force, Ford Liuhe launched the Focus Active Wagon model with "cross-border" functions and uses; and this crossover station wagon not only continues the Focus Wagon's existing spacious passenger In addition to its features such as load space and rich and generous equipment, the height of the chassis from the ground has been raised to 163mm through the heightening of the front and rear axles. It has a higher driving vision and the ability to handle light off-road on non-paved roads, making it The car has characteristics comparable to those of a crossover SUV, while retaining the excellent handling performance of the Wagon model. This is the unique "crossover travel style" of the Focus Active Wagon.
The Focus Active Wagon car series, released for the first time in China, currently only offers two models: , Hatchback and Active car series, together form a rich lineup of Focus teams for buyers to choose from. We hope that through this car sea strategy, we can bring another sales peak to Focus, especially the launch of the Focus Active Wagon car series. , and has entered the domestic SUV market with the product appeal of "cross-border station wagon", providing consumers with a tasteful and personalized option in addition to SUVs.
In terms of appearance, Focus Active Wagon continues the basic appearance settings of the current Focus Wagon series. However, the biggest difference is that it adopts a model-specific suspension design, which significantly increases the height of the vehicle body. Compared with Focus Wagon models, , its front axle has increased by 40mm, and the rear axle has also grown by 44mm, which also brings the overall chassis height to the ground to 163mm. This is also the main factor that makes the Focus Active Wagon more able to cope with muddy non-paved roads. In addition, in addition to the change in body height, many design elements from the current Focus Active are also used in the exterior part, such as the chrome-framed in-line radiator guard on the front and the exclusive front bumper design. At the same time, Active The exclusive anti-wear kit, including the front and rear lower spoilers, front and rear wheel arches and side skirts, are all made of black scratch-resistant plastic. Together with the matte silver trim panels on the lower edges of the head and tail bumpers and roof racks, the entire appearance is enhanced. Create a more significant cross-border sports atmosphere.
In terms of interior layout, the Focus Active Wagon is roughly the same as the current Focus Wagon ST-Line The dynamic blue brushed decorative panels, and the stitching of the seats and the leather-covered center console are also designed with white stitching to highlight a more lively and relaxed outdoor atmosphere.
In terms of equipment, in addition to the 13.2-inch floating full-color LCD touch screen that is standard in all models, the Vignale model also has a wealth of equipment that can be called a full range of equipment, such as a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument and SYNC 4 entertainment and communication integration system. (Built-in Chinese voice control, Bluetooth connection), wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connection, Chinese satellite navigation, HUD head-up display, Ford Sensico fashionable and sustainable leather seats, B&O subwoofer surround sound cabin, dual-zone climate control, driver's seat 8 Electric adjustment, Qi wireless charging stand, dual-mode reversing assist and kick-sensitive electric tailgate are all standard features of this car, especially with the complete set of Ford Co-Pilot360 active safety assistance technology (Level 2) , the equipment's combat power can be described as very strong.
As for the cabin space performance, it is almost the same as that of the Focus Wagon ST-Line It has been increased to 1653 liters. In addition, the rear luggage compartment floor also has functional modes such as vertical fixation and high and low double-layer adjustment. Together with the flat floor design and accessories such as waterproof pads and mesh grids, it can bring height to the car owner. Flexible space use and maximum practical convenience.
Focus Active Wagon is also equipped with its widely used 1.5-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engine, and is paired with a Select Shift 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive setting. It has a maximum horsepower and torque output of 182hp, 24.5kgm, and an average Fuel consumption can reach 16.1km/L. In addition, this car also provides a variety of terrain driving mode choices, including 5 mode settings: standard/energy-saving/sport/anti-skid and non-paved roads, to meet the driving needs of car owners and improve the adaptability to various road surfaces.
The power output performance of this turbine engine is consistent with previous experience, giving people a powerful feeling. The acceleration performance without any sloppiness on ordinary roads is very admirable. Not only is it brisk and energetic at low speeds, but the re-acceleration performance in the mid-to-high speed range is even more impressive. Full, abundant and linear, you can feel a passionate acceleration passion when you press the accelerator, which is quite impressive. However, its suspension characteristics are significantly different from the Wagon ST-Line Vignale model that we have tested before, that is, it is biased toward a comfort setting more suitable for family use, so it can give the occupants in the car better comfort on ordinary roads. Ride comfort, but it will cause more obvious roll when driving on mountain road curves. Fortunately, the suspension is supportive enough, so the dynamic stability of the entire body during cornering is still at a standard level, even if it is not as good as the Wagon. ST-Line Vignale can also enjoy a high degree of driving pleasure, but its overall handling performance is also good.
The original manufacturer also specially arranged a short period of driving experience on non-paved roads for this test drive event. After all, this is also the focus of this crossover station wagon. Although the non-paved road is full of potholes and gravels, it is a piece of cake in the "non-paved road" mode, and you don't even have to press the L position deliberately in exchange for high torque output. To respond, step on the accelerator and move forward quickly without any slippage, and enjoy the fun of this car's "cross-border" exploration of secrets.
With the personality and taste of a station wagon, coupled with the flexible and practical passenger space like an SUV, and the ability to conquer non-paved roads with a raised chassis, the Focus Active Wagon is indeed different from ordinary SUVs. The crossover style and charm, especially compared to an SUV, instantly make it a top student in driving. Such all-round outstanding performance is the innate ability and capability of the Focus Active Wagon.
