Ford launches new Focus Studio

Ford has announced that its all-new entry-level Focus Studio will arrive on the market next month, as customers rush for the new '61' number plate cars.

The latest addition, which extends the all-new Ford Focus range to five series, will be available from £13,995.

The Focus Studio sports a 1.6-litre 84bhp petrol engine and will be offered as a five-door hatchback, delivering a fuel efficient 48mpg on the combined cycle.

It features standard equipment, including 16in alloy wheels, a body-coloured rear spoiler, USB connectivity, air conditioning, electrically operated front windows and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) for safety.

The price difference between the all-new Focus Studio and the premium Titanium X stands at £10,000.

The Titanium X boasts more powerful engines, together with a range of technology and safety features.

Nigel Sharp, managing director of Ford of Britain, said: "With the high end of the new Focus range fully established, we are now making it easier for customers to get behind the wheel at the entry level."
