All-new Ford Focus set to rock the small car segment!

By the looks of things, Ford is not kidding this time. The new Focus has been fast-forwarded into the what looks like the mid-21st Century with its design, long list of included technologies, and multiple body styles.

Perhaps the most interesting is the Focus Active, which is more or less a compact crossover. There’s a wagon, a typical 5-door hatchback and an ST. There will also be a 4-door sedan for select markets, more than likely for North America, among others.

On the powertrain front, the new Foci will get upgraded 1.0-litre EcoBoost (85-, 100- and 125-horsewpoer) and new 1.5-litre EcoBoost (150- and 182-horsepower) 3-cylinder petrol engine with cylinder deactivation. There will be a pair of EcoBlue diesel mills (1.5-litre and 2.0-litre) but we’re more likely to see dinosaurs roaming the Alberta Badlands before they come to us.  A new 8-speed automatic transmission will join the mix alongside a 6-speed manual.

The 2019 Ford Focus will benefit from a 20% stiffer chassis and an isolated independent rear suspension with Continuously Controlled Damping. Through standard selectable Drive Modes, Ford promises this will place the Focus at the head of the class for driving dynamics.

Speed Sign Recognition, Lane-Centring, Active Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and Evasive Steering Assist are but a few of the active safety that can equip the Ford Focus.

Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system returns and is displayed on a new 8” touchscreen and also features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, to name but a portion of what’s on offer.

No word yet on when it arrives or pricing, but we’ll keep you posted.
