The Focus Active is an SUV-inspired hatchback with high-riding off-road touches. It is priced from $29,990 and sits in the middle of the Focus range.
The Active instead maintains the same front-wheel drive layout as the rest of the Focus range, powered by a 134kW/240Nm three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. All Focuses have eight-speed torque converter transmissions and Ford rates fuel consumption at 6.4L/100km.
The Active gains bespoke 17-inch alloys over the base-model Trend that are different from the ones available on the ST-Line, and it also gains roof-rails more soft interior finishes. The Active's traction control also gains two more modes - Slippery (for snow and ice) and Trail (for sand, gravel and dirt).
Other than that, the Active has largely the same specification as the ST-Line, with dual-zone climate control, LED fog lights, auto-folding and heated wing-mirrors, keyless entry with push-start a Qi (Chee) wireless phone charging pad and a tyre-pressure monitoring system.
