The European division of Ford has presented the updated Focus of the fourth generation. In the course of modernization, the models of the family have changed both the design and equipment. The new items received a noticeably modified front part: not only the headlights have changed (they are fully LED already in the basic version, adaptive optics are offered for a surcharge), the radiator grille, the bumper, but also the hood. The emblem of the Ford brand was transferred to the “grill” for the novelties. The difference in design between the Titanium, ST-Line and Active versions of the updated Ford Focus has been made more noticeable.
Recall that a 12.3-inch digital “tidy” appeared in the Ford Focus model back in the summer of 2020, and now it has been equipped with the Sync 4 infotainment complex with a 13.2-inch touchscreen. The new multimedia supports wireless smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay apps and wireless software updates, as well as better human speech recognition and access to Connected Navigation and Ford Secure services with a free trial.
Moderate-hybrid power units with 125 and 155 hp, which also appeared last year, are now offered for the new Ford Focus not only with a 6-speed manual transmission, but also with a 7-speed robot – as in the updated Fiesta. Also in the model line are the usual 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engines with a capacity of 100 and 125 hp, working with manual transmissions, and 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel units with 95 and 120 hp, for the older one 8-speed automatic transmission available.
Along with the base Ford Focus models, the “charged” Focus ST has also been updated. Among other things, he got a new green shade of the body called Mean Green: like the Fiesta ST and Puma ST, as well as new seats developed by the Ford Performance division. The sports version will continue to be available as a hatchback and station wagon. It will retain the 2.0-liter 280-horsepower gasoline turbo four, but the automaker has not yet announced the fate of the 190-horsepower diesel unit of the same volume.
Earlier it was reported that Ford introduced a new compact MPV Ford Tourneo Connect for Europe.
