The all-new Focus will offer class-leading driving dynamics, increased specification including new technologies, improved safety and a smart new interior package, with Studio and LX models also boasting reduced 'on-the-road' prices.

Focus pioneers Ford’s sophisticated new 115PS, 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT engine with Variable Camshaft Timing that improves airflow and delivers more power and torque while reducing average fuel consumption by up to five per cent. The range also includes the frugal and refined 1.6-litre TDCi, capable of a combined 58.9mpg or a range of over 700 miles on a full tank of fuel.
