The third generation of the Ford Focus has made its debut in Malaysia where the model has a base starting price set at RM116k.

After it was revealed at the Bangkok Motor Show in the ASEAN market six months ago, the new Ford Focus generation has finally arrived in Malaysia too, in two body styles, sedan and hatchback, and with four trim levels, two for each “shape”. The 2013 Ford Focus hatchback is getting two trims, the Sport and the Sport +, while the sedan is known as the Titanium and the Titanium +.

The Focus sedan and hatchback have the same height, 1,466 mm, and width, 1,824 mm, the only thing different being the length, 4,358 mm for the hatchback and 4,534 mm for the sedan. The new Ford Focus is coming with standard items such as the automatic and electronic dual zone climate control, the multi-function steering wheel wrapped in leather, the 4.2 inch TFT color multi-function display or the keyless entry and push start button.

Safety items include the front and side airbags, the brake assist, the ESP, TCS, ABS, EBD and ISOFIX, while the + models add rear curtain airbags. The new generation of the Ford Focus is standing on 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 215/50 tires for the hatchback, while the sedan runs on 16-inch alloy rims and 205/60 tires. Prices for the Sport hatchback and Titanium sedan start at RM115,888 while the + versions can be bought from RM128,888, on the road with insurance. A five-year/200,000 km warranty is offered for the new Focus in Malaysia.
