Technical Center Highway, we are working with radical new Ford Focus RS. We have obtained the actual consumption that we use to talk about other things than Ken Block and his wanderings.
Much has been written of our protagonist, the Ford Focus RS, but perhaps what is least talked of their consumption, since it is not a car in which the efficiency is the pillar of his philosophy.
In Autopista.es we continue extracting actual consumption of cars passing by our Technical Center and this singular Ford Focus RS sports is no exception. We assume that it is a large motor for the times-a four cylinders- 2.3 liters but smaller than the old RS was 2.5 liter Volvo veteran five cylinder block. The transmission also quite different, because for the first time in the RS series is traction to all four wheels, not the front as usual.
Without going into the famous derrapaje mode “drift” or sensations circuit, long, long time since we were testing a model as hard suspension, and that in our tours do not carry the consumer mode “S” it is harder still and you can turn to hit the button on the remote flashes. He Ford Focus RS It is not uncomfortable, but the uneven surface can be the divining as seen through the windshield. And is that RS is a full-fledged, perhaps the best of the series and its customers know it … for them this will not be an inconvenience.
What we still do not understand are the official consumption declared by the brand, 6,3 l / 100 km for him extraurbano are quite different actual consumption figures obtained for us: 8.10 l / 100 km we have obtained in our tests at an average speed of 99.71 km / h. In city, with a Stop / Start smooth and fast in operation system, 10.42 l / 100 km what we have obtained not so far from the official figure of 10 l / 100 km. The average around 9 / l100 km will be where our protagonist moves normally, up there because the potential is much and nothing to unleashing the right foot will be easier to move around the 15 to 18 liters no wonder the 24.69 l / 100 km (Mode and extreme and sporty driving) we obtained on performance in circuit INTA, all with 51 liters deposit. As I said before is not the most important car but here are these very significant data.
