All-new Ford Focus revealed

The new Ford Focus is here – and Britain's favourite family car is now cheaper than ever

Depending on the market, Ford will offer the Focus as a 4-door vehicle, 5-door wagon and/or 5-door hatchback.

The Active variant is a new high-riding crossover bodystyle.

Aston Martin inspired front grill with sharp headlamps and new bumper gives a sporty look for Focus.

The three-cylinder unit is said to produce 110kW, though peak torque is yet to be confirmed.

It is believed the ST hatchback and wagon will both be introduced six months after the regular Focus versions, so expect an official premiere to take place sometime this fall. It is operated via a rotary gear shift and Ford says it adapts shifting accordingly, depending on the driving style adopted by whoever is sitting behind the wheel.

Ford may be spending big money on utility vehicles like SUVs and trucks, but there's no denying how important the 2019 Focus is to the automaker. In addition, for a popular compact model has the Deluxe version of the Vignale and "passable" modification is Active.Representatives of the American brand noted that Ford motors is the most "technically ideal and armed with a Focus in history". The Focus four-door cuts through the air to the tune of 0.25Cd and 0.275Cd for the five-door. Ford calls it Adaptive Front Lighting, and it uses cameras to spot upcoming curves in the road and automatically adjust the beams to suit.

As you might expect, the new auto is laden with tech; adaptive cruise control now features a stop and go function for navigating through traffic. Ford will bake in lane-centering, too, to keep the Focus in-between the lines. The Focus is the first vehicle to embrace this new strategy.

Ford has added a new 1.5-litre petrol engine to the Focus.

"Innovation in every area has helped us create an all-new Focus with unprecedented craftsmanship and delivering an unparalleled driving and occupant experience", commented Ford of Europe vice president, Joe Bakaj. Some additional lead time is to be expected between the Focus's sales debut in Europe and China later this year and its eventual launch on this world of the world.

On the inside, the ST-Line wears carbon-fibre-effect trim and red-stitching distinguishes, while 10mm lower springs, unique dampers and stabiliser bars should aid in handling.

ST-Line (from £21,570): Unique sporty body styling, including unique upper and lower grille, rear spoiler and polished twin tailpipes.

On the inside, the Vignale gets premium leather upholstery and fine-grain wood trim.

The new models feature a longer hood with a cab-rearward interior and longer wheelbase, giving the cars a new visual proportion and increasing interior space without changing the actual exterior dimensions. Other elements include a first head-up display for a Ford model in Europe, active park assist two, drive modes, continuously controlled damping, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, speed sign recognition and lane centring.

It will even park itself using the second version of Active Park Assist and the Pre-Collision Assist can now detect cyclists, as opposed to just pedestrians.
