The fourth generation Ford Focus is almost ready for its official unveiling, although first, the automaker wants us to take a look at a couple more teasers.
Shared on Twitter by Ford’s Director of Product Communications, Jay Ward, the first image partially reveals the front end of the car, whereas the second one shows the ‘Focus’ badging at the rear. In between releasing teasers, Ford was caught shooting the new-gen Ford Focus a few months back, so its silhouette is not exactly shrouded in mystery anymore.
The compact hatchback has a reworked body that looks similar, up to a point, to vehicles such as the latest Hyundai i30.
The interior has been redesigned too, and this is where Ford chose to adopt a floating-style infotainment system, unlike the current Focus models, which have the screen incorporated into the dashboard. We also expect a host of driving assistance gizmos, which in higher specs should include automatic emergency braking, pedestrian warning and many more.
The 2019 Ford Focus will be produced in China, alongside the local version. From there, the manufacturer will import it in Europe, probably in the coming months, whereas North America might receive it next summer, as a 2020MY car.
And speaking of 2020, that’s when the all-new Focus RS might show its face, using a hybridized powertrain generating approximately 400hp and 600Nm (443lb-ft) of torque.
In just 4 hours, we will unveil the all-new Focus here in London and around the world. Can’t wait to show everyone a car we are hugely proud of @Ford #FordFocus. @FordEu @forduk pic.twitter.com/oEFqHAsIPE
