VIDEO: Ford Shows Off New SYNC 2 Abilities In 2015 Focus, Coming To Malaysia This Year

So, we understand that a new 2015 Ford Focus will come to Malaysia before the end of the year, and with it, several key design and technology improvements.

For its ASEAN debut in Indonesia recently, key chances included a new 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbocharged engine, and the lack of a Ford PowerShift dual-clutch transmission in favour of a conventional torque converter automatic.

But buyers more interested in the car’s handsome looks and new gadgets may be most exciting to see the coming Focus’s SYNC 2 infotainment system – the second generation voice and touch interactive media infotainment system.

Here, Ford (global) is briefly showing us what its new SYNC 2 system is capable of. The demo runs through three key highlights of the SYNC 2 system, being hands-free and voice-activated entertainment, climate control and mobile phone controls.

One other thing the SYNC 2 system focuses on bringing to the latest range of Ford models (especially in Malaysia) is a larger display screen with much-improved graphics – thrashing the current Focus’s 5-inch display screen for size and cool-factor.

The dashboard clutter from the current Focus is also tidied to offer a much more appealing layout, and one that’s certainly more driver friendly and ergonomic.

We understand that Sime Darby Auto Connexion will be looking to launch the facelifted Ford Focus in Malaysia before the end of the year, so best you start saving up for the next big C-segment hatchback contender.

 
SYNC 2 - the smarter connectivity solution while driving.

With SYNC 2, Ford’s advanced hands-free connectivity system, there’s no need to rely on your clumsy friend to control your navigation, phone, climate and entertainment system. Just press a button on the steering wheel and use natural voice commands to control these common functions.
