The active set-up also for the Ford Focus Wagon, which increases the light from the ground for the occasion. With the 2020 Ford Focus Active Wagon, the Ford has succeeded in revolutionizing its C segment on the theme, the historical and leading pillar of its own price list. It made it even more technological and pleasant to drive. But since you never stop following the trend of the market, the Active Wagon version, a variation for families and with a greater height from the ground, could also arrive.
In a market that looks with increasingly languid eyes to SUVs and crossovers, there are brands that offer interesting alternatives and reworking on the theme of models not born exactly to cover these segments. Ford is one of these, which has started offering the Active set-up for some of its cars. With the 2020 Ford Focus Active Wagon wants to trace the wake now taken, proposing a car for families, but also manages to let go on some dirt road.
Like every Active we’ve seen so far to launch at Ford, the Focus Active Wagon has an increased ground clearance compared to the standard version, namely 30 mm at the front and 34 mm at the rear, which also includes a series of aesthetic changes that recall a bit of the offroad look. The suspension system is managed by the SLA (Short-Long Arm), which normally isolates the car’s interior as best as possible, but which, on the Focus Active Wagon, in particular, sees a reposition of the shock absorbers to ensure the best possible response even when the car travels fully loaded.
To meet customers who prefer to abandon themselves to unpaved paths has changed the type of original equipment tires, which on the Active version have a higher shoulder and measure 215/55 with 17-inch wheels or 215/50 with rims from 18 inches. These are then joined by two dedicated driving modes, which are flanked by those already present on all versions: one is dedicated to slippery surfaces such as ice, to better optimize the driver assistance systems, the other is dedicated to surfaces such as sand or mud, for which there is a need for optimal traction control.

In terms of aesthetics, however, the Focus Active Wagon comes with dedicated front and rear bumpers, as are also new front grille and wheel arch profiles, with a look very dear to off-road lovers. Under the bonnet are, an option, the 1.0 and 1.5-liter EcoBoost, respectively with 125 and 150 horsepower, while the diesel is 1.5 and 2.0 liters with powers of 120 and 150 horses.
