Re: OFFICIAL - Ford Reveals All-New 2015 Focus Sedan

Automobile Magazine adds a few more details:

- ...updates do go beyond the new hood, prominent Aston-esque grille replacing the current model’s upper and lower front fascia, new taillamps, new trunk lid, and include some chassis tweaks.

- The 2015 Ford Focus also gets LED lighting incorporated into the headlamps and taillamps. Up front, they serve as the daytime running lamps. The rear bumper fascia also has been redesigned, and the sedan’s trunk lid is new. All these are hallmarks of a unibody facelift.

- ...the engine(1.0L EcoBoost) will be a standalone option available across Focus trim levels and in either the four-door hatchback or the four-door sedan.

- ...a new Sport Package available for the mainstream, high-volume Focus SE adds 17-inch black aluminum wheels, a black grille, and a black rear spoiler, plus paddle shifters for the dual-clutch automatic, the first time they’ve been offered on the car.

- The center console’s charging plug has been re-engineered so that electronic devices charge as quickly as if plugged into a home wall socket

Re: OFFICIAL - Ford Reveals All-New 2015 Focus Sedan

With the introduction of the new sleek, upscale 2015 Focus Sedan, it's amazing how awkward and dated the 2014 Corolla just got.

The 2015 Focus need to launch in July like the MY2014, and not delay until winter.

Re: OFFICIAL - Ford Reveals All-New 2015 Focus Sedan

Are there no pics of the wagon yet?

Any whispers of a new Focus coupe?

The wagon was unveiled last month in Europe along with the hatchback. No Focus coupe coming with this generation at least.

Here is N.A. press release link https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...nameplate.html
The sedan is a great looking car with this refresh and it should continue to be a top seller for Ford. Thanks for posting the interior images 'MKII', I sure hope the lighter one is offered in the U.S.

Re: OFFICIAL - Ford Reveals All-New 2015 Focus Sedan

I've heard before that the Focus is smaller inside than most of the competition, especially in the back seat. Is this true? I haven't been in a Focus in years, so I don't know, just curious what you guys know.

The rear seat space IMO is relevant to each persons opinion. As an owner I do not have any issues with the space in the rear seat area.

IMO people who find the rear seat space of the Focus too small, need to choose another brands C-segment vehicle or move up to a C/D segment vehicle.

The Focus, thank god was not designed to satisfy the needs of all (shapes and sizes) C segment shoppers, as the Civic , Corolla are IMO meant to serve this demographics. Or if you are outside of North America Ford offers a good selection of other choices in their C segment family if you are not looking at hybrid vehicles.

Re: OFFICIAL - Ford Reveals All-New 2015 Focus Sedan

Good point, MKII. In each clase there are always going to be cars that are slightly bigger and slightly smaller; they can't all match every dimension across every manufacturer.

It's actually kind of silly how each generation of vehicles is expected to get bigger... that's why the current Civic is bigger than the Accord from the 80's. Pretty soon the Fit will be the size of the Civic and we'll need a new small Honda! I think when we're talking a few mms of difference it's not a big deal, and like you say, if it IS a big deal to someone, they can simply buy another model.
