The last gasp is often the sweetest. As the summer season drew to a close, with ominous rainclouds on the horizon, we got a final full dose of sun, sand and steering wheel amid the beautiful sights of Bohol. Our vehicles for the weekend: the stimulating Ford Focus, in sedan and hatchback guise, with 1.6 or 2.0 gasoline engines. As we exited the small and efficient Tagbilaran airport, they were lined up, ready to traverse the island with gusto. The Focus looks eager to get moving, with its dynamic lines looking good on the sedan, and exceptional on the hatchback.

In the Philippine Motoring landscape there are some hidden gems that often leave me flabbergasted as to why less people actually own and drive them. The Ford Focus is one of them. It’s not perfect, but is very close to it, and offers unmatched levels of comfort, refinement and performance.

Heavily modified, turbo-charged, and badged, my image of Ford Focus will always be the tough RS (Rallye Sport) WRC (World Rally Championship) edition which debuted in Monte Carlo Rally in 1999, a year after the road version first rolled out of the factory.
Ford Philippines has announced an exciting, interactive and unprecedented launch campaign – “All-New Ford Focus…Start it. Share it. Win it” — designed to engage Filipino consumers with real-life ‘smart-demos’ of two of the all-new Ford Focus’ first-in-segment, smart technologies. The smart demo road show will officially start on Friday, August 3 at SM Marikina.
