In addition to the above - do this at night too when the cabin is dark. The cabin also looks cheap to me - the vent plastics just look low rent. I noticed this when they changed the Ibiza in 2017 - they actually downgraded the cabin quality considerably using less soft touch materials and cheaper feeling plastics.There’s been lots of discussion on the forum about the potential safety implications of removing most - if not all - of the conventional interior switchgear. it would be good to get an open and honest view on how intuitive and easy it is;
If the car is equipped with voice control, does the car react to the driver’s commands or is it a bit ‘hit and miss’? Also, are there any obvious areas of visible cost cutting in the car’s interior compared to the mk3 Leon, such as poorer quality trim, less use of soft touch materials?
- to use the main touchscreen for basic functions such as adjusting the heating controls and radio volume while driving
- to locate and operate the different areas on the lighting control touchpad, which is located quite low down and out of the driver’s line of sight. The rear screen de-mist ’button’ is now on the lighting control touchpad, so how easy is it to locate/operate while still focusing on the road ahead while driving?
Very boring wheels for an FR... however first edition wheels do look great on it from what I’ve seen.
Interesting question for you - is the fog light unit the same as the Mk3.5? Doesn’t seem to match the rest of the bumper, and it looks strangely familiar...
The alloys on the FR First Edition might look OK but being diamond cut, the chances are they’ll be showing signs of white worm corrosion when they get to 2-3 years old - especially if they’re on a car in the UK that’s used as a daily driver during the winter months and subjected to road salt and spray.Very boring wheels for an FR... however first edition wheels do look great on it from what I’ve seen.
It really pains me to say it but i really like the look of the Focus ST line. Unsure if i could do it to myself though and own a Ford.Hi, as well as all the previously mentioned comments regarding the touchscreen and engine, I would be interested in the ride quality etc, I recently tried a Focus ST Line X and it’s in another league, even better than the wife’s Golf.
