One of the best spark plugs for Ford Focus vehicles is the iridium-tipped plug. These plugs are made with a durable iridium alloy and have a longer lifespan than traditional copper plugs. They also provide excellent performance in all driving conditions. If you’re looking for a high-quality plug that will last for many years, then the iridium-tipped plug is a good option.

Another great choice for Ford Focus drivers is the platinum-tipped plug. This type of plug is also made with a durable metal alloy, but it features a platinum coating instead of iridium. Platinum is known for its ability to withstand high temperatures and extreme weather conditions, making it ideal for use in Ford Focus vehicles.

The Ford Focus car is a traditional representative of the popular C-class, as it was originally born as such back in 1998. Since then, the Ford Focus has already changed generations four times, but each time it has been among the segment leaders again and again: winning the Car of the Year in Europe competition for the first generation, the widespread use of the phrase “Focus Class” instead of the usual “Golf Class” from the demanding British AutoSMI in the second generation, the unique Focus RS  in third-generation.

The fourth generation of the car received a wide range of turbocharged in-line power units, mechanical and classic hydromechanical automatic transmissions, as well as exclusively front-wheel drive.

Gasoline Ford Focus, as the base engine, will receive a line of three-cylinder EcoBoost units, producing 85, 100 or 125 horsepower. The automatic transmission is only offered for the 125 hp version. This is followed by a full-fledged 1.5-liter four for 150 or 182 forces.

The sports modification ST boasts a two-liter unit from which it was possible to squeeze out 280 hp. Diesel “Focuses” as an initial engine are equipped with a 1.5-liter engine for 95 or 120 forces. For a surcharge, you can order a more productive four Ecoblue for 2 liters and 150 hp.
