Rental Ford Focus CC (II) to impress everyone

Rental Ford Focus CC (II) to impress everyone

04.07.2016
Here's a review of the Ford Focus CC (II) – a superb budget cabriolet. There are some drawbacks, but they are tiny. The car has excellent handling and powerful engines. Rental Ford is very popular in Moscow.

Ford continues following the concept of making "a car for people", but the company decided to knock off its own spots. In addition to standard packages, the company produced a cabriolet.

The Focus was used as a base. Can the cabriolet surprise consumer once again? Let's rent the Ford to figure out the answer.

Exterior

A car with an open top is usually associated with sea and pleasant landscapes. Therefore, if you see a cabriolet on city roads, you start feeling relaxed and getting positive emotions.

The Ford Focus Cabriolet is a quite good car. Its body has harmonious proportions, brevity, and consistency. Due to its neutral design, both man and woman look pertinently behind the steering wheel. Moreover, this car is perfectly suitable for people of all ages.

A foldable roof has a rigid base, and it consists of two parts. It makes the trunk smaller, but it folds and unfolds very quickly (in less than 30 seconds). Also, the engineers tried to keep the body's rigidity at the original level and used high-strength steel to make many different parts.

Interior

The cabin is the same that the old Ford Focus has. The quality of materials and assembly are good, as well as ergonomics of the driver's seat. The panel hasn’t been changed at all much. The interior looks respectable due to the glossy black plastic on center console and light upholstery.

The driver's seat doesn't have a good profile, and it's a bit uncomfortable for long trips. You'll always fidget trying to find the right position. However, the rear seat is roomy. It's quite comfortable even for people whose height is above 185cm. The leg room is also spacious.

Technical characteristics

The Ford Focus cabriolet is equipped with:

  • a 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter atmospheric engines (100bhp and 145bhp respectively);
  • a 2.0-liter, 136bhp turbo diesel engine;
  • a 5-speed manual transmission, 4-speed and 6-speed automatic transmissions.

The diesel engine is most preferred for active driving. It shows excellent traction at low and medium speeds, and the fuel consumption is low. The 2.0-liter petrol engine is good, but you should «spin» it for active driving up to medium and high speed because there is low torque at low speeds. The 1.6-liter engine is suitable only for melancholic drivers because it works very leisurely.

Despite the fact that a suspension was modified and borrowed from the powerful ST version, the car isn't sportive. The Focus confidently follows the trajectory and shows neutral understeer. But steering isn't sharp and informative. The suspension rigidly overcomes even small irregularities on roads, and it doesn't provide smooth driving. Therefore, you can only choose a path with smooth asphalt.

Let's sum up

The Ford Focus CC is a good budget cabriolet that can give you pleasant emotions for a reasonable price. Of course, there are some drawbacks, but they are small. They can’t spoil the positive impression. Therefore, renting Ford is popular in Moscow and abroad.
