Rear passengers get almost three extra inches of leg room over the outgoing version, and Ford says that the new Focus has more interior volume than the old auto.
Ford has taken the covers off its latest version of the ever-popular Focus family hatchback range, which includes a high-end Vignale model and the first Focus Active crossover.
The all-new Focus will be offered in three trims - ST-Line, Titanium and top-end Vignale.
The last Focus was somewhat lacking in safety kit - not helped by the fact it was an ageing auto. While Ford may have confirmed some of its engine options - everything from a 1.0-liter EcoBoost gas engine through to a 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel - so far that's only the case for Europe and China. The lighter 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 1.5-litre EcoBlue will use a torsion beam, which Ford would rather refer to as a twist-beam, but infused with Ford-patented force vectoring spring technology borrowed from the Fiesta ST.
