Ford’s next-generation Focus will be on show at the Paris Motor Show next month.
Ford has confirmed there will be a five-door, estate and hot hatch version of the new Focus.
The new Focus will be nearly identical in all markets, with 80% parts commonality around the world.
The global engine lineup for the new Focus will include a range of Ford EcoBoost four-cylinder turbocharged direct injection (DI) engines – including the 1.6-litre unit in Europe and a choice of Duratorq TDCi common-rail diesel engines, all of which offer reductions in fuel consumption of between 10 and 20% compared to the outgoing models.
The new Focus will go on sale in the UK in the first quarter of 2011.
