This Focus derivative is surprisingly nimble and responsive for a microvan, due to it’s communicative steering and responsive gearbox. The brakes are pleasingly responsive and the chassis isn’t excessive in body roll. The higher roofline does make it more susceptible to crosswinds and the larger cabin does have a bit higher noise levels.
This little microvan is expected to get a combined 32 miles per gallon in the manual transmission and 29miles per gallon in the automatic versions. The U. S. version of this peppy little van will feature 143 horse power 2.0 liter four cylinder engine, some models might hit American soil sporting a 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine that produces 134 horsepower. The turbo diesel with a six speed dual clutch should produce 41 miles per gallon in combined driving.
This little gem will also sport a whole range of new Ford technologies including semi-automatic parallel parking and a blind spot detection system. With this little microvan added to the Ford lineup, Ford dealerships are likely to be visited by a host of curious visitors looking to see this little van for themselves. Get ready to see a bunch of these traveling our roadways when they become available. They have a lot to offer in a small package and with good looks to boot.
