Interior design and technology – Ford Focus

The fourth-generation Ford Focus emerged last year, marking the brand's 20th anniversary. As in the previous generation, the model is available with sedan, hatchback and estate body styles. A crossover SUV trim level, known as the Active, is also available with the hatchback and estate body styles. While the Active’s ever-so-slightly raised driving position (3cm compared to the standard Focus) and rugged trim adds off-road appeal to the carmaker’s most popular family car, such features are not new to the car industry or Ford. It joins the Active versions of the Ka+ and Fiesta. Continuing QUBE/just-auto's review of interior design and technology trends, we climb aboard an Active to take a closer look.

The European Steering and Suspension Parts Market, 2012 - 2020; Market size, market forecast and recommendations

The European Steering and Suspension Parts Market, 2012 - 2020; Market size, market forecast and recommendations

Published: Mar 2019

The steering and suspension parts market in Europe has been affected by the degradation of many roads following the European economic recession. Potholes and poor road surfaces in many countries have impacted the longevity of steering and suspension parts, with the volumes sold increasing 2.4% in 2012-16, whilst values grew by 7.6% over the same period, reflecting the use of lighter-weight and more corrosion-resistant metals such as aluminum and plastic in their manufacture.
