Ford Focus Active X Vignale Revealed
The Ford Focus is having a banner year in Europe, delivering a total of 194,700 sales through October — good for a four-year high and the equivalent of one sale every 135 seconds. Ford isn’t letting its foot off the pedal, introducing a new variant to add further intrigue to the lineup: the Ford Focus Active X Vignale. Can’t wait for next year when we get the Ford Focus Active X Vignale: Turbo Edition.
“From the Focus five-door model to the wagon, from Active to ST, there is no wider choice offered to customers in the segment,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “And all models come with great design and technology.”
The Ford Focus Active X Vignale offers up plenty of must-have amenities like LED headlamps, leather Vignale interior upholstery, Active Park Assist, and a head-up display. Helping this version of the Focus stand out even more are unique 17-inch alloy wheels and a contrast black roof and mirrors.
But wait, there’s more! Ford is also launching a new Focus EcoBoost Hybrid with a 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain in 2020, growing the Focus family and its electrified offerings in Europe.
From the Focus Active to the Focus ST, Ford has struck a chord with drivers across the continent. According to research, 40 percent of Focus drivers say that exterior design is the leading reason for purchase. Folks also love the comfortable interior, which boasts best-in-class rear kneeroom.
Since launching the Focus in 1998, Ford has delivered over 7 million cars across Europe.
