Ford Australia have gone below the $20,000 barrier with pricing for the new Focus range starting from $19,990 for the entry-level manual CL hatchback and sedan, undercutting the new Toyota Corolla by $1,000.
The Focus CL comes standard with dual front airbags and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).
Ford are also offering an optional safety pack on CL models which includes side airbags, curtain airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Traction Control (TC). The safety pack will bring the Focus to a five-star safety rating level.
Ford will release pricing for rest of the Focus lineup, including the much anticipated new turbo-diesel Focus TDCi towards the end of this week. Stay tuned!
