The Ford Fiesta gets a cosmetic redesign alongside more efficient mild-hybrid drivetrain options in the latest update.

15 Oct 2021 | International News : U.K.

Ford has revealed the updated Focus mid-sized family car with an expressive new design and fuel-efficient electrified powertrains alongside advanced connectivity.

As with the recently updated Fiesta, the new Focus gets its 'blue oval' badge now placed on centre of the Focus' new grille as opposed to being on the bonnet lip.

There's also new LED head lights up front, now standard on all new Focus as well as a sleeker lower fascia design.

At the rear, the five-door and wagon models feature a darkened taillight lens for a premium look.

Each new Focus variant also benefits from unique design details for greater differentiation across different trim levels. The 'Connected' and 'Titanium' lines feature a wide upper grille with a gloss chrome surround, distinguished by its strong horizontal bars and matched by upturning side vents that flow from the lower grille.

The Ford Performance-inspired ST-Line variant meanwhile, gets a sportier character thanks to its uniquely proportioned trapezoidal upper grille, supported by a gloss black honeycomb finish alongside broader side vents and a deeper lower grille. ST-Line variants also feature side skirts, a rear diffuser and a discreet rear spoiler.

The adventurous Active variant takes inspiration from SUV design cues for a more rugged appearance. A wider upper grille features more substantial vertical strakes, and a deeper lower grille and taller side vents complement the raised ride height and black body cladding.

The new Ford Focus will be available with a 1.0-litre EcoBoost Hybrid engine with 123bhp and 153bhp power outputs. The engine is paired with 48V mild hybrid and a seven-speed Powershift automatic transmission, although a six-speed manual gearbox is also offered.

In the cabin, the Focus gets Ford's SYNC 4 communication and entertainment system, which uses a sophisticated machine learning algorithm to learn from drivers' behaviour and deliver more accurate suggestions and search results over time.

SYNC 4 is supported by an all-new 13.2-inch central touchscreen, with an intuitive interface that means drivers never are more than a touch or two away from any application, information or control they need. The new touchscreen also incorporates controls for functions such as heating and ventilation that were previously activated using physical buttons, resulting in a cleaner and less cluttered centre console.

The SYNC 4 system also enables Ford Power-Up wireless software updates that will improve the new Focus over time.
