The Titanium is the most optioned level of the Focus, so all those extra parts and accessories all add up to more weight.

However nearly 200 kg seems too much for extra parts and accessories ?

The titanium and 5 door hatchback weight around the same, 1360 kgs. Not sure where you are coming up with 200kgs difference. The difference is more like 20kgs.

OK, thanks for the info. I'm not going to argue with you. I guess just don't understand why is it so important you have to know the weight of the vehicle?

Simply because 200 kg is a lot of mass and I am curious to know where it comes from. Is it mainly the mass of higher quality steel ?
