Ask Ford
Q.

Our 2012 Ford Focus rides really hard. What type of suspension does it have? I have had a 2007 and 2001 and they rode more comfortably.

A.

The 2012 Focus has a new suspension comprised of front independent MacPherson struts and a fully independent Control Blade™ rear suspension with standard front and rear stabilizer bars. The suspension has been tuned as part of its European-inspired design for an engaging driving experience. The suspension is complemented with an electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system with drift control, as well as electronic front-wheel Torque Vectoring Control, all supported by tires with a balance of all-weather grip and fuel efficiency. If you purchased the available 18″ wheel/tire option on the Titanium model, this includes a firmer suspension, including unique strut/shock damping rates and spring rates for a sportier feel, greater handling and driving excitement.

M Simonet I would prefer a slightly firmer and lower suspension for my Focus Titanium (non-handling package). Less body roll in exchange for not having a super "plushy" ride.

Bob S Actually , I think the tighter handling is one of the car's strong suits.
