FOCUS TDCi IN NST'S CBT
The writer heaped praises on the car notably on the powerful diesel engine, its equipment level, the torque and the traction. The writer did not touch on the handling though.
On the downside, the writer highlighted the sluggish downshifting (whatever that means) and the fact that the Focus and all its variants will be made obsolete within 2 years.
The writer however gave a more believable fuel consumption estimate - 55 litre for 500-600 km - compared to some reports on the web which boasted that the car can go 800 km with 55 litres pumped in its belly.
Sadly, whatever it is that the car has to offer, at RM128,888 OTR w/o insurance, the TDCi remains well beyond my reach.
