Outlander : le guide d’achat du Mitsubishi le plus venduSalon de l’auto Caradisiac 2020

Quand on est une marque étrangère, et que l’on compte vendre une berline compacte break dans l’hexagone, mieux vaut avoir du cran, ou une sacrée dose d’inconscience. Même Volkswagen, with its Golf SW breaks its teeth on the French market, which has eyes only for the Renault Megane Estate and the Peugeot 308 SW. So, when your name is Ford and you still try to try your luck with this wagon version of the Focus, better to have a few trumps up your sleeve and avoid encumbering your customers with extra weight : the green penalty. Therefore, the American put electricity everywhere, at more or less high dose, in plug-in hybrid or in hybrid quite short, across its entire range, without excluding its compact sedan station wagon For the Focus SW, no big armada, no rechargeable battery like the other compact, SUV this one, and Kuga. We only lend to the rich so the Focus has to be content with the mechanics, and the electrification of its little sister Fiesta.

These two blocks that we find on the city car as on this compact come from a single mold, since it is the 1.0 l Ecoboost turbo of 3 cylinders that develop, a choice 125 and 140 ch. Both receive micro-hybridization in the conventional form of an alternator starter of 11,5 kW and a 48V battery. But this transplant does not modify the power of the small engine of 125 ch, while she adds 15 hp to the most powerful block. These are therefore 155 hp that slip under the hood of the Focus in sedan version or, like here, en version break. A term that, for once, is not usurped. because the compact Ford does not have a simple extension at the rear : she lengthens. And not just a little. She measures downright 29 cm more than the sedan to peak at 4,67 m. Enough to increase the habitability in the rear seats ? Not at all. It remains identical to that of the sedan. On the other hand, the chest swelled. The hold accommodates 610 l. No need to search : it is the biggest, tied with the reigning champion of the genre : the Skoda Octavia Combi.

We obviously find in this station wagon the dashboard of the sedan. But both get something new this fall : a digital dashboard. With a size of 12,3 pouces il est évidemment configurable pour laisser apparaître les informations que l’on souhaite. Mais la vraie nouveauté est ailleurs, sous la forme de cette nouvelle configuration mécanique.

L’équipage hybride modifie-t-il fondamentalement cette Focus ? On l’avait ausculté lors de sa sortie en 2018 en version totalement thermique et elle marquait clairement une rupture dans l’approche que Ford avait de la notion de compacte. Vive et dynamique jusque-là, elle s’embourgeoisait avec cette quatrième version. However, la Focus n’en est pas devenue pataude, surtout avec ce moteur de 155 ch. S’il n’est pas franchement sportif, it nevertheless transforms the station wagon into a nice GT capable of quite honorable acceleration and of times that are just as good. The front axle is less surgically precise ? It will easily be consoled over long distances thanks to better comfort. Certainly, this comfort seems a little incongruous with the ST-Line finish of this test. Rims 18 inches, that do not degrade the comfort in question, the brake calipers repainted in red like the double exhaust outlet seem disproportionate to the mechanical possibilities. But this bottle of sportiness will prevent the intoxication of excessive speeding.

However, and despite his almost 1,6 tonnes, the Focus is not lazy. Thanks to its electric kickstand, among others. She offers him, in addition to his 15 additional ch, a couple of 24 Nm which allows him to total 240 Nm. What to revive the long car. Hybridization also allows the Focus to significantly increase its engine braking since the system regenerates on deceleration. Result : a curious (and good) impression of driving a good old fuel oil block, if it were not for the noise of the three cylinders, which is still very present. The Focus is a bit like the white Araponga of the automobile : a very pretty, and rather lively, Amazon bird, known to be the loudest in the world. However, and without being hard of hearing, the downside is not insurmountable and this car is truly effective by even forgetting its length. Because if it is comfortable, she does not dive on her supports, has just given up somewhat what made the salt of the three previous generations : an incisive front axle and a rear axle which followed the rhythm. The Focus has become a normal car, a good normal car.

Rather brave, this hybrid focus is also rather frugal. The small starter alternator and its battery allow it to display 123 g of CO2 per km with the rims 18 inches. Note that this not really essential climb makes the bill climb a lot since in mode 17 inches, emissions go down to 117 g. Consumption follows a slightly less brutal curve between the two rim sizes, since she goes from 5,2 in 17 inches, at 5,4 in 18. Obviously, these emissions calculations, like consumption, are understood by WLTP standards. On a real road and with a real driver, it takes on average 7 small liters for 100 km. What, considering the size, the power and overweight of the machine, is far from shameful.

not understand the consistency between strengths and final grade, something tells me that if it had been an SUV and French it would have had 3 point of +

I really like Ford productions, je n’ai rien de principe contre les moteurs downsizés, le 1.0L ecoboost est fiable et a tout plein de qualités, mais monté dans une voiture compacte, amenée à charrier du bordel qui plus est, je dis non !

J’adore la Focus, mais puisque le 1.5 existe dans la gamme, je trouve que les quelques économies faites sur le moteur se paieront sur la longévité de l’auto, donc au préjudice du consommateur.

For me, une compacte avec ce niveau de puissance, this is 4 cylindres ou 1.5 L si seulement 3 cylindres minimum, sinon je vais voir la concurrence (coucou Seat Léon).

l’impartialité ne semble pas le point fort de cetessayeurqui a sévi, il y a peu, by making low praise for the hybrid swift and fiesta. Ah if the hood of these cars was decorated with the diamond or the lion, comments and ratings would be, for sure, more positive!!

On a donc, for € 29,900 catalog price (we can easily remove 5000 € knowing the Ford policy), a station wagon with a large trunk, super equipped and super motorized. Why put 5,000 € more (surely more with a smaller discount) in a more gourmet Kuga, smaller boot and with exactly the same interior ? The high seat is expensive.

As soon as it’s called Ford, it’s not terrible and it’s been a long time ago ….

I remember the time when he criticized the Ecosport boot lid when there is much worse at Renault on the Kangoo ludospace or you break your back to open the tailgate and who of course you can not open either when you are in front of a car just like the Ecosport but where opening it is much easier !!

Interesting vehicle in the category. I quite like the exterior design, rather balanced, but I have a little more trouble with the interior.

Personally, I prefer the Toyota Corolla station wagon in terms of design. And I still prefer the Kia ProCeed more, but unfortunately it is not available in hybrid (only the Ceed SW is, and the XCeed).

Moreover, talking about Kia, I find that the rims of this Ford Focus closely resemble the rims of the Ceed ”first edition”…
