Ford has revealed its updated Focus small sedan this week, following the unveiling of its revised hatch and wagon siblings in February.
Like those two, the refreshed Focus sedan gets an extensive front-end makeover, with new headlights, Ford’s new family grille design and a new bumper.
Changes at the rear include a slender new take on the sedan’s tail-light design and a new bootlid that does away with the attached grab panel.
The sedan’s cabin gets the same streamlined new centre console featured in the hatch and wagon, with fewer buttons and a large new display.
The version shown here - a sports model for the US market - also retains the gloss black console panel and Sony-branded control face.
This North American ‘SE’ model also wears a unique sports styling kit, with 17-inch wheels, skirts all-round and a small spoiler to the boot lid.
Depending on the market, technology in the new 2015 Focus range will include Ford’s SYNC 2 infotainment system with an eight-inch display and new voice control options.
There’s also a new Perpendicular parking system, new reversing sensors, Active City Stop, Pre-Collision, and the Ford MyKey system.
European market Focus models will get Ford’s 110kW and 132kW 1.5 litre EcoBoost engines, along with 70kW and 88kW 1.5 TDCi diesel options.
The 73kW and 88kW 1.0 litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine options will continue to be offered, with current three-cylinder models making up a third of Focus orders in Europe.
