It looks like Ford recently introduced the Focus Active in China, the model that was supposed to be introduced in the US market.

It appears to be identical or almost identical to the European version.
Only one engine is offered, the 180 horsepower 1.5 EcoBoost (top gasoline engine in the Euro model) with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Is a pity USA wont get this car. Is a better option than the EcoSport. And the new Puma wont go there, either. Both cars are good option in a B-C segment. Better than the old EcoSport.

Here's something strange, while I was checking out Ford's Chinese website, I noticed that there's no longer any mention of the 1.0 EcoBoost. In China this engine was offered in the New Focus, EcoSport and Escort.

The 1.5 Ti-VCT inline-3 is now the only engine offered in the Chinese EcoSport and Escort sedan.

In the New Focus, the 1.5 Ti-VCT inline-3 is now the base engine that sits directly below the 180hp 1.5 EcoBoost.

Unlike the EcoBoost models, the New Focus 1.5 Ti-VCT with an automatic transmission uses a conventional shifter and hand brake in place of the rotary shift knob & electric parking-brake.

Here's thie link just in case the image is not showing: https://car2.autoimg.cn/cardfs/product/g30/M00/38/F3/800x0_1_q95_autohomecar__ChcCSVy59QOAUIinAAliAG80wlI787.jpg

Ford is going through major restructuring in China after a collapse in their market share, part of that includes cutting back options....so the 1.0 bit the dust.
