The China market has the same Focus as the US, and the Escort will be marketed above the Focus. So the same will happen globally. The Escort is more spacious than the Focus sedan, and will offer lots of technology. The current Focus will not grow much as it needs to stay about the same size to meet requirements/consumer needs in global markets.I think this Escort should be below the Focus sedan (the current model because I know that Ford sell the previous gen in some markets) not above it. The interior of the Focus looks better.
This is the same reason that Toyota sells two different Corolla models, one smaller and and a larger model sold in other global markets.
We should see a Escort Wagon coming next.
