The 2018 Ford Focus Sedan debuted in China this week. Here are images of the ST-Line variant from the debut, courtesy Autohome.
The 2018 Ford Focus Sedan ST-Line has a more aggressive styling compared to the regular 2018 Ford Focus Sedan. At the front, the large radiator grille consists of a honeycomb structure and has a black frame. Bold signature ST-Line lower wing elements direct air to the air-curtain inlets. The more open front apertures are designed to enhance performance and show-off the engine components behind. The bulged-out outer ends of the bumper give a very powerful appearance to the car, much like that of a sports car.
On the sides, the 2018 Ford Focus Sedan ST-Line has body-coloured underbody spoiler, black window trim, 18-inch alloy wheels in the same design as the hatchback version and red brake callipers. Differentiations at the rear include a subtle deck lid spoiler, an aggressive styled diffuser and a twin-tip exhaust. Key interior features may include sporty carbon fibre-effect finishes and red stitching.
Under the hood, the 2018 Ford Focus Sedan ST-Line will likely have the all-new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ST-Line variant will likely have unique springs, dampers and stabiliser bars to offer a slightly more spirited driving and better handling. Like the hatchback version, it should ride 10 mm lower compared to the standard variant.
The 2018 Ford Focus Sedan, at least as of now, is a China-only offering. It is expected to go on sale in the second half of the year.
