The next generation Ford Focus has been spotted completely undisguised. The image was shared by vezess.hu reader who captured the car in Portugal during what appears to be a shoot. The fourth generation Focus is expected to make its debut in coming weeks.
Judging by the two-tone alloy wheels, front splitter, rear spoiler and a diffuser like element at the rear, this could be a more performance-focused version of the Focus. Red brake callipers are visible too. This particular variant is likely to be the Ford Focus ST-Line.
Ford had earlier released preview images of the new Focus revealing certain details like the full-LED headlamps, tail lamps with LED graphics, and the new hexagonal grille with chrome lined louvers. The Ford Focus will continue to utilise the company's Global C-platform. Like the current Fiesta, Ford is expected to offer the Focus in ST-line, Vignale, and Active trims.
Ford may unveil the new Focus officially at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show that kicks off on March 8, 2018. The hatchback will be followed by Ford Focus sedan and wagon body styles later. Reports suggest Ford will offer it with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engines in multiple power outputs and the 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine, as well as new 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engines in Europe.
