The next 2019 Ford Focus has been seen testing with production bodywork as well as a part-complete interior, demonstrating how the fourth-generation model will look when going on sale in 2019.
Set to be unveiled next year, the Vauxhall Astra counterpart will go the same evolutionary path as the recently disclosed Fiesta, making use of Ford’s highly flexible global C-class platform. It’s going to be another five-door hatch. The car maker is currently focusing on making more SUVs. At least European president Jim Farley is assured that exactly SUVs are becoming the most preferred family vehicles.
Evidently, there’s nothing strange in the vehicle’s similarity to the Fiesta’s, considering the project’s currently under the management of Darren Palmer, Ford’s small-car guru, whose team has recently rolled out a fresh Fiesta, Ka+ as well as a drastically updated Ecosport B-segment SUV.
The new 2019 Ford Focus won’t likely to surge width or length, though it’s tipped to feature approximately 50mm more wheelbase in order to match its competitors for rear leg room.
