Next-Generation 2019 Ford Focus Spied For the First Time



Quote:
The Ford Focus is getting quite old compared to its competition, but with a new one due out soon, spy photographers have caught the next-gen model for the first time.

This 2019 Ford Focus is the first full body prototype spy photographers have seen. The new compact, which was spied in Europe, will be a bit less tall but longer and wider than the one it replaces, meaning there should be more room for passengers and cargo.

Expect the looks to mature and for the compact to offer all the safety and driver assistance technology that is now becoming the norm like adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. Inside, the Focus will probably try to move upmarket and have a cleaner and more intuitive layout.

A range of small EcoBoost engines are expected to be offered, and an ST model is sure to follow.

The 2019 Ford Focus will have to fight very hard to compete with the upcoming Volkswagen Golf, which has just been refreshed to offer such high-tech goodies as gesture control and a fully digital gauge cluster.

The current Ford Focus has been around for seven years with just one major refresh under its belt. The next-generation model should debut in 2018 as a 2019 model year car and should continue to be available as both a hatchback and sedan.

If the dual clutch automated manual hasn't been fixed or done away with, why buy it?

I just drove a '12 Focus loaner and now I know why everyone complain about that transmission. REALLY awful. I would rule out the car on the basis of the trans alone.
