Ford Motor on Tuesday said its newly developed Focus Zetec S is the Sportiest series ahead of 2012 Focus ST with 250PS. Developed specifically for UK customers, Focus Zetec S will start at £18, 745.

Based on the existing Zetec model, this new Focus comes with a full sports styling kit including front and rear spoilers with lower sill extensions and 17in alloy wheels together with sports suspension featuring stiffened springs and dampers, aluminium-style sports pedals, rear LED tail lamps.

The vehicle will be available in five-door bodystyle with estate to follow in February 2012. Customers will have to choose between four engines: the 1.6-litre 180PS EcoBoost turbo-charged petrol engine, a 1.6-litre 115PS TDCi with ECOnetic Technology, 1.6-litre 125PS Ti-VCT petrol and the 2.0-litre 163PS TDCi.

Equipped with the 1.6-litre 180PS EcoBoost turbo-charged petrol engine , the upcoming Ford Focus Zetec S will hit 62mph in 7.9sec.
In addition, Ford said any Focus Zetec S chosen with this engine or the 1.6-litre 115PS TDCi will carry the ECOnetic Technology badge, as they benefit from auto start-stop, Ford ECO mode, gear shift indicator, active grille shutter and smart regenerative charging.

The vehicle is on sale from tomorrow.
