1.0 EcoBoost ECOnetic edition in the UK that emits 99g/km of CO2 and gets 67.5mpg UK (56mpg US). It will be on sale in early 2014. 

The latest version of the 1.0 EcoBoost has 100ps (99hp) thanks to stop/start, regenerative braking, active grill shutters and an EcoMode green driving mode. To get the improved fuel economy, it also has low rolling resistance, updated aerodynamics, flat underbody and new gearing.

“Just a couple of years ago few would have thought that a medium-sized petrol car could break the 100g/km CO2 barrier. Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has a habit of taking expectations of what a petrol engine can deliver and turning them upside down," said Barb Samardzich, Ford's head of European product development.

Without the modifications the 1.0 EcoBoost produced 109g/km of CO2 in the Focus in its 100ps tune and emits 114g/km of CO2 in the 125ps (123hp). The engine wn the International Engine of the Year award in 2012 and 2013 for its class. 

The Focus 1.0 EcoBoost ECOnetic is the cleanest petrol version of the Focus available. The only cleaner version is the diesel Focus ECOnetic that emits 88g/km of CO2. 

Ford is also introducing the new Navigator trim on the Focus that adds satellite navigation and unique 16in wheels. There is also the Titanium X Navigator that adds a Sony navigation system, rearview camera and 17in wheels.
