Ride quality on Focus
 
I am interested in the South African Ford Focus 2.0 GDi Hatch. This model will have the sports suspension and 17" wheels on 215/50 tyres.

Now I know with the great suspension of the new Focus and sports suspension the ride will be great but has anybody ever driven their Focus with 17" wheels on sports suspension on farm and gravel roads? I would often have to travel to remote places and to get to some of those places I would need to do the occasional gravel roads.

Also how is the rattle of the interior parts when driving on gravel roads?

Is that the 2012 model year +?

I drove down an unpaved road with ruts and gravel that was in progress of repairs last week with my Titanium with 18" wheels 235/40/18 + handling package
Well.. it's quite rough but stable. It's a firm jostle but you don't get thrown around like in some cars I have ridden in.

I blast down junk, back country roads all the time in mine, with 18s. Its feels like a Cadillac, its just that soft.
