Facelifted Focus breaks cover at Frankfurt

Ford will reveal its facelifted Focus at the Frankfurt Motor Show today.

The new car features Ford’s kinetic design which can be seen on the new Mondeo, S-Max and Galaxy. Three-door, four-door, five-door and estate body styles will be first in UK showrooms late this year. Coupé-Cabriolet and ST sporting flagship variants will arrive in spring 2008.

Inside, the instrumentation has been re-designed and, along with all other interior controls, is illuminated in red. Controls for the upgraded audio equipment and two-zone air conditioning have also been given a refresh.

The Titanium trim level now includes a new centre console (optional with Zetec and part of the Sport Pack), which adopts the 'kinetic design' look.

Along with the aesthetic changes, Ford is adding a new automatic transmission option to the Focus line-up. The Ford PowerShift transmission will be available from early 2008 in the new Ford Focus as well as the Ford C-MAX, in combination with the 134bhp and new 108bhp versions of the 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi engine.

Prices will be announced closer to launch.
