2019 Ford Focus – first-spy-pics show advanced design of the five-door hatch

The next Ford Focus ramp-start up for a year in 2019, with engineers currently testing a late-to build prototypes.

Discovered by Autocar photographers, the images of the fourth-generation model to show the real skin under a panel tested under Arctic conditions. Such an examination is carried out only when the car is, the appearance and the specification are Mature, in order to prove that the finished model works well under extreme conditions and fine-tuning of the brakes and the stability of the electronics.

The new Focus, the sentence at the beginning of 2018 will be revealed before a market launch the following years, the consequences for the platform, the same evolutionary path, such as the recently unveiled Fiesta, with Ford’s highly flexible global C-class. It will only come as a five-door sedan: the Ford is in the process of its development funds for more SUVs, the European President, Jim Farley believes, is transformed into a “preferred family cars”.

The Focus of the program is the similarity to the Fiesta development is no surprise, since the project car is now under the management of the Ford small-guru, Darren Palmer, whose team recently delivered, the Fiesta, the Ka+, and a greatly improved Ecosport B-segment SUV.

The new Focus is unlikely to grow in length or width, but is about 50 mm have tilted a longer wheelbase, according to its rivals the legroom in the rear. It will also provide a weight saving of around 50kg, model for model, although the exact numbers are still being calculated. Efficiency is high on the agenda: Ford is without doubt an improvement on the current car’s aerodynamics. There is also the introduction of a new all-electric as one of one of a dozen electric cars promised last year by the European chief Farley. The company has also experimented with hybrid models that are already successfully in its US line-up, but there are no safe characters from a four-generations-focus hybrid.

The new main streamer engine program, depends heavily on the successful 1.0-litre Ecoboost three-cylinder petrol engine available 99, 123 and 138bhp versions and also the range of 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre petrol units in several power levels is likely to be towards the power line and “full-fat” ST-versions. The staple diesel is again the 1.5 TDCi, although a 2.0-litre diesel may be offered for ST-performance models. Ford has spoken, nine – and 10-speed automatic in America for several years, but is likely to be for the time being-stick with its six-speed Powershift dual-clutch gearbox as the European option, “automatically”.

One certainty is that Ford is launching a high-riding focus is Active, along the lines of a growing demand for “lifestyle set make use of by the recently unveiled Fiesta Active” models. There are several models: the base vehicles are regularly the front-wheel-drive system, but it is probably an optional four-wheel-drive effective use of hardware from the existing Kuga SUV.

Suggestions that there is no replacement for the current Focus RS appear to be wide of the mark: Ford sources suggest it is “at least one more” version of the highly rated 165mph Sport hatch in the company’s Arsenal. Ford boss Farley is well-known, keen on such models, he says, do much to boost the image and therefore the attractiveness of the entire Ford range.

In the interior of the new Focus are Packed more carefully than ever before, offering improved passenger space in important areas, although it is no bigger externally. The setup is easier and much more stylish: the Designer of the company’s private, that they “cabins over delivered” on the dashboard of complexity in the recent Fiesta and Focus. The fascia, especially, is easier and less claustrophobic, with more features enabled on a prominent Central Touchscreen.

Ford is still the decision to launch details of the fourth generation of the Focus. It is the third generation of the model showed that earmarked for a 2011 launch, in 2010 at the Detroit motor show at the beginning of the year, which apparently is the load of the car’s global credentials, and a tribute to the strength of the home town. No one to confirm the Blue Oval HQ, the car’s arrival, but the same thing could happen again, which would mean a show in the 2018 Detroit motor show.
