At a sale price of $92K with guaranteed COE, the focus looks like a steal, considering the fact that the Toyota Corolla Altis Classic model is listed at $97,988 (source: sgcarmart.com) on that weekend. In addition, the Altis is manufactured in Thailand while the Focus hails from Spain. While the Focus looks like a good bargain, the message behind the advertisement is more important. It looks like Regent Motors is trying to clear the existing stocks of the Focus, to make way for its successor. If one remembers clearly, Regent Motors was rather aggressive in advertising the pre-facelift Mondeo, powered by the 2.3 litre Duratec engine. The model made way for the face-lifted Ecoboost Mondeo shortly after that.
I am almost certain that the new Focus will be available with the 1.6 Ecoboost unit found in the new Volvo S60. If the current 100bhp 1.6 Focus sounds anemic to you, the new Focus should not disappoint. And to the all-new Jetta Sport, enjoy your success while you can.
