Engine and Performance
Ford Focus station wagon comes as a part of ST trim level which is a high-performance tier of Focus’ lineup. This is a FWD vehicle that has 2.0L high-output EcoBoost I4 engine which is good enough to deliver 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque and is coupled with 6-speed manual transmission.
Fresh design has brought new wide hexagonal stripe open mouth grille and thin laid-back headlights. Roofline falls seamlessly and rear-end is finished with long tail-lights. Side fenders are softly pronounced, both at front and rear wheels which gives new Focus some style and power. Station wagon looks just like the hatchback, but is longer and a bit more capacious.
Interior is furbished with soft-touch materials including leather on higher trims. What differentiates wagon from the rest of the lineup is, both more headroom and legroom at the rear, plus much more cargo space in the trunk. Rest of it is pretty much the same and Focus wagon has 8-inch touch-screen that comes with the MyFord Touch infotainment system and offers smart device connectivity, audio system control and use of navigation. Dashboard is heavy and takes much more space than it did in previous models. Besides the fact that it is too big and space-robbing, dash is better designed and keeps controls close. Safety features come with airbag system, standard rearview camera and optional BLIS blind-spot warning system, and a lane keeping system.
Fuel economy ratings for Focus wagon stand at 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway which are quite solid numbers considering the heavy body and strong engine that it has.
