It may not be like haldex but it definitely shares the same core functionality. I would call it v2 haldex but Ford trying to steer clear of the name to avoid VW synonyms.You will be quite pleased to know that the RS AWD system is not like the Haldex system. The VW Haldex was literally benchmarked by Ford as an example of handling they did not want.
"Core functionality"? About the only similarity between the VW Haldex and the GKN Twinster is that they both provide drive to the rear wheels. One might rightly argue that the latest generation of Haldex no longer needs wheel slip to activate; but mechanically, literally everything they do, they do differently. As far as the Twinster being Haldex V2.0....well, there's just no polite way to say it....that's preposterous in every way. The only system sharing the Twinster type mechanicals would be the Acura SH-AWD.It may not be like haldex but it definitely shares the same core functionality.

Wow 1.8 vs 2.5 steering, lock to lock. That is a big difference. Better get use to swinging the back around. I do wish I had MagneRide instead of ADM. lolFor me it's really just the turning circle. It annoyed the crap out of me in tight parking areas with my old ST, and things don't look to be much better with this generation.
MagneRide would have been cool
I don't mind the slower lock-to-lock (I prefer a fixed steering ratio anyway). It's the 39ft turning circle that gets meWow 1.8 vs 2.5 steering, lock to lock. That is a big difference. Better get use to swinging the back around. I do wish I had MagneRide instead of ADM. lol
WTF? You mean they don't move in parallel but in opposite directions? How is this possible with the big overlap they must have on that gigantic windscreen? Have to check a video...,<done> OMG that is awful...:upset:-Windshield wipers! Why can't Ford use unidirectional wipers?? Focus wipers look and operate like they're stolen from a Dodge Caravan!
