The 2019 Ford Focus caught without camouflage during the advertising shoot for a short while to its premiere in April.
The 2019 Ford Focus, which has been caught in heavy camouflage several times before, appeared on the Hungarian website Vezess without camo. The exterior design of BMW, which is believed to removed its cover during a photo shoot, is inspired by his younger brother Fiesta.
Just as in Fiesta, the new hatchback will be presented in stages with multiple versions. Built on Ford’s global C-class platform, Focus will compete with challenging competitors such as Opel Astra and VW Golf.
The 2019 Ford Focus not appear to have changed in length or width, but it will now provide a more comfortable knee distance for the passengers on the rear side, thanks to the nearly 50mm extended axle distance. Although the exact figures have not yet been revealed, the vehicle is said to be about 50 kg lighter and more aerodynamic than its predecessor.
As part of a new generation of electric vehicles Ford has been talking about for this year, the Focus may also come in electric version.
The new Focus powered by the 1.0-liter Ecoboost three-cylinder petrol engine with 100 HP, 125 HP and 140 HP options. It is also quite possible to have 1.5 liter and 2.0 liter engines with different power ratings of 280 HP for the ST-Line and ST versions. While there are still 1.5 TDCi on the diesel side, the 2.0-liter diesel engine is expected to power ST performance models. Ford also likely to offer a 6-speed Powershift dual-clutch transmission options for the European market. If there is something definite, it is just like Fiesta, Focus is also the future of Active variant. It is clear that Ford wants to benefit from the demand for such vehicles to the end.
Although there will be no visible change in the size of the 2019 Ford Focus, an improved living space will be provided thanks to a more careful layout on the inside. According to the designers’ claim, the complex console design of the successor will not be transferred to the new model, but a more convenient and stylish layout will be used instead. Also, more features can be controlled from the central touchscreen. The new Focus is expected to feature the B&Q Play sound system with 10 speakers that works with the new infotainment system.
While there is no information on the price of the 2019 Ford Focus, will be launched gradually in the second half of this year following the introduction in April.
