Ford will continue to sell the current Focus alongside the next-generation model when it goes on sale in March.
It will be a single model called the Focus Sport and it will be highly specified and priced at £15,000 in comparison to the entry level price for the new Focus which starts at £15,995.
The Focus Sport will be on sale between the plate-change months of March and September this year.
The Sport comes with satellite navigation with European mapping, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, voice control, parking distance sensors, 16-inch ST-style alloy wheels, auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers and self-dimming rear-view mirror.
It is available in the five-door bodystyle with a choice of two engines: the 1.6-litre 99bhp petrol manual and the 1.6-litre 108bhp TDCi manual.
Ford expects to increase sales from 77,800 Focus models in 2010 to 90,000 across both of the Focus models in 2011.
