The new Focus introduces a fresh and confident exterior inspired by Ford’s “human-centric” design philosophy, giving each new Focus variant a distinct personality.
A new bonnet design increases the height of the nose for greater visual presence across the line-up, and the Ford “blue oval” badge is relocated from the bonnet lip to the centre of the larger upper grille.
New LED headlights are standard on all new Focus variants and now include integrated fog light functionality that allows a cleaner, sleeker lower fascia design, and deliver a distinctive and purposeful light signature. Five-door and wagon models feature a darkened taillight lens for a premium look, while high-series LED taillights feature a new internal design with a darker central section and an eye-catching new loop light pattern.
Each new Focus variant benefits from unique design details, with upper grille and fascia designs reflecting distinct personalities and creating greater differentiation across the range. Connected and Titanium series feature a wide upper grille with a gloss chrome surround, distinguished by its strong horizontal bars and matched by upturning side vents that flow from the lower grille. In addition, Titanium series features a hot-stamped chrome finish to the upper grille bars.
The Ford Performance-inspired ST-Line variant’s sportier character is delivered using a uniquely proportioned trapezoidal upper grille, supported by a gloss black honeycomb finish alongside broader side vents and a deeper lower grille. ST-Line variants also feature side skirts, a rear diffuser and a discreet rear spoiler.
The adventurous Active variant takes inspiration from SUV design cues for a more rugged appearance. A wider upper grille features more substantial vertical strakes, and a deeper lower grille and taller side vents complement the raised ride height and black body cladding.
Expanded availability of the Vignale pack for new Focus introduces ultimate luxury specification for Titanium, ST-Line and Active models. Alongside enhanced equipment levels and interior finishes, Vignale specification introduces satin finishes to the upper grille and side vents in place of a body colour finish, and exclusive alloy wheel designs. The new Focus benefits from five new alloy wheel designs across the range.
“The Focus has always been at the forefront of our ‘human-centric’ design philosophy, and now we have created a line-up that has even more personality,” said Amko Leenarts, director, Design, Ford of Europe. “Every Focus oozes quality and modernity driven by technology, while each variant has a character that our customers can connect with emotionally -- reflecting their own personality.”
