2020 Ford Focus Station Wagon; Spacious, Fun For Family
OR FAMILIES If the last time I talked about the New Ford Focus 5-door Titanium with Diesel TDCi 1.5 engine and automatic transmission, this time I decided to get on board the 2020 Ford Focus Station wagon. But beware, not a classic station, but the one in ST-Line set-up. Aesthetically more charged, it is aimed at those dads who do not want to deprive themselves of a car with a bad look but not excessive, without giving up the possibility to load half the house when they leave for a trip with the family.
2020 Ford Focus Wagon Dimensions & Volume
4.67 meters long by 1.83 wide and 1.48 meters high, the 2020 Ford Focus Station Wagon grows in all sizes compared to the generation it replaces. In ST-Line set-up I find pleasing sports accents at 360 ° on the body, such as the glossy black front air intake, spoiler with aerodynamic appendages, side skirts, specially designed wheels and diffuser with only aesthetic value to the rear. Overall, the Focus saw 2020 ST-Line is a car that stands out and stands out from its competitors, also thanks to the new stylistic course that I have already appreciated on the 5-door.
HOW MUCH SPACE
If, as I already told you in this article, I was not surprised by the load capacity of the new Ford Focus 5-door, the change completely changed for the Focus station wagon. The trunk starts from 608 liters in standard configuration, well 118 more than the Focus of the third series, to touch the 1,653 liters knocking down the back sofa. If we are not at the top of the category, we are missing. Overall roominess is good, and even taller occupants have no problem finding the comfort they need even when sitting behind.
The interior of the new Focus station wagon does not differ from the 5-door. The dashboard is developed with marked horizontal lines that amplify the feeling of spaciousness. At the center stands the touchscreen display of the SYNC3 infotainment system, compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while for those who do not want to renounce to stay connected, Ford offers the possibility to use a preloaded data card capable of generating a useful wi-fi for up to 10 devices. The dashboard still has analog tachometers and tachymeters, as well as an evolution of the central monitor from which to obtain the travel information. The absence of a digital instrumentation even among the optional extra charges is offset by a valid head-up display of a higher category, available in the catalog for 500 euros. Plastics are pleasant to the touch, never hard or crispy except in the lower part of the door panel.
UNDER THE HOOD

The choice for petrol lovers is almost obvious, with the 1.0 EcoBoost with three cylinders available in powers of 95 and 125 HP.

Consumption goes hand in hand: if you do not want to force the gas pedal, you can easily keep on 6.5 l / 100 km, but as soon as you exaggerate you can
