The re-styled Escort RS2000 and RS2000 4×4 reflect a sports image that distinguishes them from previous models.
The car’s re-designed sleek body provides more attractive exterior styling which is further enhanced by rounded bonnet and bumpers, re-styled door mirrors and integrated honeycomb mesh grille improving its streamlined appearance further.
The 2.0 EFi 16 valve Twin Cam, catalyst-equipped engine provides a responsive, exhilarating 110kW (150PS). Safety throughout these performance models is provided by the enhanced restraint system with driver’s Airbag (SRS). During an impact sensors inside the front seat belt inertia reels will already have locked the reel, and in addition other sensors will activate clamps which grab and hold the belt webbing to minimise paying out of the seat belts due to the spooling effect. Front anti-submarine seats are designed to reduce the likelihood of occupants slipping forward under their seat belts.
Vehicle protection is effectively undertaken by central, double locking, an anti-theft alarm and Ford’s Safeguard immobiliser system.
The instrument panel and controls were updated resulting in improved layout and style. The facia accommodates three rotary illuminated controls for heat, ventilation and the option of air conditioning. The front Recaro seats are fully adjustable and can be positioned to provide the ideal driving position and are finished the smart new Flow fabric seat trim in Raven Grey.
