Ford sets Focus prices lower

FORD’S new Focus will be cheaper than the outgoing model when the first drivers take delivery of the car on January 1, 2005.

However, higher specification models will have a price increase to take account of extra equipment.

The Ford Focus CL has been replaced by a model called Studio and will be priced at £10,895 on the road for the 1.4-litre 3dr variant. It represents a saving of £250 over the outgoing CL.

The new LX has air-con as standard for £11,945, where it was a £500 option on the £11,800 outgoing car. There is a new Sport derivative which sits between LX and Zetec and is priced from £12,220.

Zetecs are priced from £13,095. Ghias are only available as five-door or estates and start at £14,670, while the new Titanium is also available as a three-door priced from £14,925.

Euro IV diesel models are available in each of the manual 1.6 TDCi and 2.0 TDCi for a £300 premium over the Euro III compliant versions, with prices for EU IV starting at £14,645 on the road for the 1.6 TDCi LX.
