Scoop: Ford's Facelifted Focus Hatch and Sedan Offer First Glimpse of the Aston-esque Grille

Here’s a fresh batch of spy shots of the upcoming Ford Focus facelift in both five-door hatchback and four-door sedan body styles.

We’ve spied the Focus before, but this is the first time we’ve seen the refreshed compact model wear its final production front, with the saloon even allowing us to take a glimpse of the razor-blade grille that should be popular with…Aston Martin fans.

The sedan also reveals a section of its redesigned tail light clusters that may be accompanied by some styling tweaks to the boot lid, possibly the bumper as well. Similar changes are also expected for the hatchback, though it’s not exactly easy to see with all the heavy camouflage on the prototypes.

Back in December, we caught a glimpse of the Focus Facelift’s interior featuring a revised center console with a bigger infotainment screen and new buttons.

The range is rumored to be topped out by a a high-performance RS hatchback, expected to use the 2015 Mustang’s 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
