The waiting is finally over for motorists wanting to get their hands on the dynamic all-new Ford Focus - which is now available at Jennings Ford’s Sunderland, Gateshead, South Shields, Stockton and Middlesbrough dealerships across the region.

The arrival of the exciting new model line-up, which includes a sporty 5-door hatchback, coincides with the new ‘11’ March registration plate change and is expected to further boost sales for the last month of the first quarter across the group’s dealerships.

To celebrate the launch and official unveiling of the latest addition to the highly-impressive Ford stable, customers and members of the public are being invited to Jennings Ford’s dealerships this weekend, Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March, where they will be able to see and test drive the all-new Ford Focus model for themselves.

Colin Massey, sales manager at Jennings Ford's Cargo Fleet Lane branch in Middlesbrough, said;

“With over 1.4 million examples sold in Britain since its launch in 1998, the Ford Focus has become a favourite with consumers for its outstanding value, comfort and safety, and above all, for being fun to drive.

“The all-new Ford Focus, which is currently available at JenningsFord’s Cargo Fleet Lane, Yarm Road, Riverside Road, Eslington Park and Newcastle Road dealerships, combines dynamic design and exceptional array of smart new technologies with high levels of craftsmanship, outstanding occupant safety and further advances in acclaimed levels of driving quality.”

“The launch of the new model, which also coincides with the new March registration plate, is not only expected to generate a positive response from existing customers, but also attract new customers to the Ford brand.”

Available in Focus Edge, Zetec, Titanium and Titanium X model styles, the all-new Ford Focus also incorporates features from the Ford ECOnetic Technologies programme to help minimise fuel consumption and C02 emissions.

Class-leading advanced technologies can include Low Speed Safety System, Active Park Assist, Lane Keeping Aid and Torque Vectoring Control.

The all-new Focus is also the first Ford model to standardise Auto-Start-Stop technology across a significant part of the range. All vehicles with the 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine and the 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine are equipped with Auto-Start-Stop, with C02 emissions starting at just 109g/km on the diesel model.
