Fresh from the online reveal, Ford has brought its best-selling Focus line nameplate to the 2014 Geneva auto show in its updated form for its official public unveiling.
In order to keep its sales pace – as Ford says its Focus line is the world’s best selling nameplate, the compact model has been thoroughly revised, with updated styling for the front fascia and back taillights. Besides the rather obvious exterior updates, Ford engineers have also worked underneath the body, tweaking the electric power steering and ESC system, while improving the ride by modifying the front dampers and both front and rear bushes.
The familiar engines range from the well known 1.0-liter EcoBoost with 100 hp (74 kW) or 125 hp (92 kW) to the 150 hp 2.0-liter TDCi, all sold next to a 145 hp (107 kW) battery electric variant.
New on offer are the 1.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline turbocharged motor that is offered in 150 hp (110 kW) or 180 hp (132 kW) variants, while on the diesel side the Focus has another brand new 1.5-liter TDCi turbodiesel declined in 95 hp (70 kW)or 120 hp (88 KW) variants.
