Ford Focus is Fords most popular car. New redesign looks great and fresh but it could be better on the inside. Best looking of course is the ST-Line with sporty looks.
New Focus won many awards for Car of the Year - 2018.
There are six different packages; Trend, Cool & Connect, Titanium, ST-Line, Active and Vignale. There are also 3 body kit looks. Up to Titanium you get default look of new Focus, Active is off road version, ST-Line sports version and Vignale top of the line more luxury.
You can chose new Focus in 12 colors and allow wheels 16" up to 18", depending on package you chose.
Entry models com standard with halogen lights, while top have two optional types of LED lights.
Interior and tech
New Focus offers good space and latest driving technology. But infotainment and interior quality could be better. New dash looks better and is made of soft plastic on top. AC buttons are on the reach of hand well layed out.
In entry model you only get 4" touch screen, Bluetooth, DAB radio and a couple of USB ports. But on the rest you get; 8" touch screen, voice recognition, Apple Car Play and Android auto and phone mirroring.
Infotainment is responsive but has bad GUI, graphic could be sharper and whole menue isn't not so intuitive.
ST-Line and other top models get Navigation as standard and 4" color instrument cluster. Still no virtual cockpit. Wireless smartphone charging is optional (not on entry models). New Focus is first Ford in Europe to get heads-up display but sadly in form of cheap plexiglass.
Leather cloth seats are optional, full leather is only available on top Vignale model.
New Focus is 5 cm longer, has plenty space for tall passengers like me (2 m). Trunk space offers 375 l of space.
There are plenty of petrol and diesel engines to chose depending on model you chose. EcoBoost petrol includes 1.0 - 3 cylinder ranging (85, 100 and 120 HP), and 1.5 - four cylinder with 150 or 182 HP..
All diesel EcoBlue engines are 4 cylinder including; 1.5 with 95 or 120 HP and 2.0 producing 150 HP.
You can chose either standard 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission.
Entry price is 18.700 € for base model, ST-Line 25.300 €, and top ranging Vignale 28.800 €. German configurator is open so you can spec yours now.

Ford Focus was known for excellent driving capabilities and I don't doubt it still is. Overall still a great hot hatch and mostly improved over last model.
