Have you ever heard the expression ‘Your car is an extension of your personality?’ Some say this is especially true when it comes to car colour, believing that you can tell a lot about a person by the colour of their ride.
With that in mind, the 2014 Ford Focus ST comes in several colours that represent many different personalities. Let’s take a closer look to see which colour is right for you and how the Focus ST caters to your traits.
Tangerine Scream (Orange)
A rare colour on the road, orange screams unique. People who drive this colour car usually like being the centre of attention and love to have fun.
And what’s more fun than hearing the roar of your engine as you drive down the street? The Focus ST has a sound symposer that pipes the engine’s noise into the passenger compartment of your ride so you can hear it growl. The roars are emitted from the tailpipe, but since the Focus ST’s interior is sealed so tightly, engineers still wanted to ensure that drivers could hear the awesome sounds of the engine. Pretty cool eh?
There’s also the unique feel of the RECARO seats, which wrap around your body and give you the true feel of a racecar.
The Focus ST’s powerful 2.0L EcoBoost engine with 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque make for a thrilling ride. Slam the gas pedal to the mat and feel your adrenaline start pumping.
Owners of blue cars are said to be very reliable and loyal. They enjoy stability in their lives.
Features like AdvanceTrac electronic stability control with anti-lock brake system (ABS), standard on every Focus ST, make for a stable and reliable drive. AdvanceTrac constantly monitors the road conditions and your responses, then adjusts engine power and applies ABS to keep all four wheels planted. This provides superior handling for drivers.
However, for the control freak Type A’s – you can easily turn all this technology off and just put your skills to the test.
Simply put, silver cars denote sophistication. They’re not necessarily flashy, but they get the message across.
It’s the little things on the ST that show sophistication. Take for example the striking bold ST lettering on the black grille – it shows others that you’re not just pushing a regular whip. Also worth mentioning are the 18-inch alloy wheels, leather wrap steering wheel, split vertical tail lamps, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps.
Owners of white rides are organized, logical, and enjoy simplicity in their lives.
The Focus ST is loaded with features that simplify your life. SYNC with MyFord Touch enables you to use voice commands for various tasks, including navigation, using the phone, changing the radio station and even turning on the air conditioning — all without your hands leaving the steering wheel. Another feature that promotes simplicity is the Intelligent Access, which will open the doors of your Focus without having to use your key fob. Just have the key in your pocket when you pull on the handle and voila – you’re good to go.
When you drive a black car, it signifies that you’re in control and very confident. Also, you pay attention to details.
The Focus ST keeps you in command at all times. The Electric-Power-Assisted Steering ensures that you have complete control of the car by delivering precise steering. And high performance brakes and sport-tuned suspension work together to put the power in your hands.
