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.

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.
