The small LCD display in the current European Focus is used
- as a trip computer
- for selecting steering mode (for EHPAS-equipped cars)
- as a thermometer
- for enabling/disabling ESP
- for showing the selected gear (for cars with automatic transmissions)
The larger display is the multimedia center (GPS-navigation, DVD-player, FM radio, phone).
The 2012 Ford Focus has been (once again) developed in Germany. That's why I believe that the functionality of displays will remain the same as it is in the current European Focus.
