Ford unveils all-new Focus

The vehicle represents the fourth generation of the popular compact and is due in most markets later this year.

The all-new, fourth-generation Ford Focus made its debut yesterday and already a couple of speculative renders have emerged showing the ST and RS hot hatches.

The cabin looks much nicer than the outgoing model and thanks to a longer wheelbase (length is increased by 18mm, the wheelbase by 53mm), there's more space in there as well. Now in its 10th generation, the new Focus faces an even bigger challenge, making its pitch to coax drivers out of their crossovers and into something that Ford argues is just as practical.

You can also go for adaptive front lighting or evasive steering assist - all self-explanatory but likely to be on the more expensive models.

A nook in the dashboard will offer optional wireless charging, and SYNC 3 will be offered with an optional 8-inch touchscreen. New 1.5-litre EcoBlue and 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines deliver ultimate fuel-efficiency, and a new intelligent eight-speed automatic transmission adapts shift patterns to driving style, and is controlled using a stylish and ergonomic Rotary Gear Shift Dial.

The 2019 Focus will see roads later this year in Europe and in China, but those in North America will have to wait until 2019 to get behind the wheel.

There is a variety of petrol and diesel engine variations available. The new Focus will reach showrooms in the autumn. All use independent rear suspension. Speaking of which, Ford says the dynamic coefficient is 0.25 for the four-door Focus and 0.273 for the five-door model while weight was cut down by 88 kilos compared to the current model. A supporting Park-Out Assist is also able to drive the Focus out of a parallel spot on its own.

The new Focus will get Ford's suite of active safety features, called Co-Pilot360, that includes adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. Trim wise, the range starts with the Style and builds through Zetec, Titanium, sporty ST-Line, top-of-the-range luxury Vignale, and the small-SUV-style Active, which has higher suspension and more rugged styling.

Mechanically, it carries over the outgoing generation's 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine, available in two power output levels - 150 PS and 182 PS.

The estate boot space has been created to comfortable fit a dog crate, so Fido should be happy about the new Focus. The 2019 Focus arrives with a completely new design, new set of engines, and new underpinnings.

The Focus has always been the benchmark in its class for chassis control and the all-new model is expected to continue to legacy. There's also a 2.0 litre diesel with 148bhp. These images are of the China-spec cars, manufactured locally at the Changan-Ford joint venture.

The front end of the auto also features a slightly different design to the rest of the range, in the same way that the Vignale and ST-Line models also feature bumpers that subtly communicate the cars' differing uses.
