The facelifted version of the Ford Focus has been officially unveiled, ahead of its public debut scheduled for next week, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
A major facelift has been recently applied to the company’s popular model, the Focus, which includes the new front and rear bumpers, the different headlights and taillights, new body panels and let’s not forget that new front grille, which “isn’t” copying Aston Martin. Other changes added to the facelifted version of the Ford Focus also include the updated electric power steering, the upgraded front dampers, the reprogrammed ESC and some other tweaks.
The cabin of the 2015 Ford Focus is now more simple and ergonomic, getting features like the three spoke steering wheel, the sportier appearance, the better engine insulation, the SYNC 2 connectivity, with the 8-inch touch screen color display, the thicker side window glass and some other tweaks, which should be helping the model become even more popular with its future customers.
As far as the engine lineup goes, the 2015 Ford Focus is coming with a new 1.5 liter EcoBoost gasoline turbocharged engine, which is now good for 150 HP (110 kW) and it’s also offered with 180 HP (132 kW). Other options available include the 1.0 liter EcoBoost, in two outputs, 100 HP (74 kW) and 125 HP (92 kW), the 1.6 liter TI-VCT with 85 HP (63 kW), 105 HP (77 kW) And 125 HP (92 kW), the 1.6 TDCi with 115 HP, the 2.0 TDCi with 150 HP, the 1.5 TDCi with 95 HP and 120 HP and the 145 HP electric version. Transmission options include the 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and 6-speed PowerShift.
