The Focus will retain its engine options, besides the pairing of a 6-speed manual transmission to the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which the company says will make it more fuel efficient than before.

On the outside, the Focus gets a restyled hood and grille, new headlamps and taillights, and a restyled trunk lid. In the US, the car will be available in four-door and a five-door versions. Inside, new colours and materials for the cabin, along with satin chrome detailing, new seat trims, switches and an optional heated steering wheel are the highlights. There’s also a new centre console that incorporates an adjustable cupholder.

    It’s very surprising that Ford has stayed away from launching the world’s best selling car in India. The fact that the Focus is a brilliant driver’s car makes it an exception to the general norm that cars have to be sort of dull white goods like the corolla to appeal to the common man. Even the tremendous sales that they are able to generate in China does not seem to convince them.
