Presenting The All-New 2020 Ford Focus

DHS learners were very keen to learn about Ford's Drive 4 UR School programme

The revised styling continues in the cabin as designers installed a new instrument cluster, satin aluminum accents and high gloss finishes. Ford has changed the seat backs in the rear, given it more headroom and made the floor flatter so that even the Sasquatch can get its feet under the rear seats.

Having said that, Ford has revealed enough details about this all-new Focus, sans pricing and official fuel consumption figures. The company has set itself what, on the face of it, is a hard challenge.

Ford says that it has worked hard to try and engineer the Active model with the same Focus "feel" that you'd find on other models in the range, despite the higher centre of gravity. Thus, consumers will be offered as few as 26 design combinations instead of more than 300 that could be ordered previously, depending on the global market.

Ford sales fell 6 per cent previous year even as overall vehicle sales in China rose 3 percent.

"The move to China, the largest market in the world, is a trend we will continue to see for vehicles that can't make the business case for assembly in the USA or for tying up capacity in North America", Sullivan said. This will streamline a number of common components like engines, electronics, and sunroofs. Ford will debut its new Ford Co-Pilot360 advanced driver assist features on the auto. Production of the third-generation Focus ceased on the 6th of April, 2018.

Ford says the latest generation of its "stop and go" tech will bring the Focus to a complete stop in stop-start traffic - and automatically pull away if stopped for less than three seconds. Ford will bake in lane-centering, too, to keep the Focus in-between the lines.

Stop&Go, speed sign recognition and lane assistance technology will help on your morning commute.

A new Active Park Assist system, meanwhile, can take control over acceleration, braking, and - in automatic cars, presumably - the transmission. The all-new Focus is able to self-park in both parallel and perpendicular parking. A new chassis is said to deliver an "energetic, engaging and rewarding fun-to-drive experience", so it's pleasing to see that Ford is balancing fun and safety in the new Focus. There's adaptive headlights that can turn the beam when the vehicle is going around corners.

The Focus retains it's legacy of driving dynamics, further enhanced with the first Focus-application of continuously controlled damping (CCD) technology for the independent front and rear suspension systems; new drive modes; an isolated rear subframe for greater refinement; and Ford-patented spring technology.

The "connected car" isn't just a buzzword any more, and drivers are expecting more from their dashboards than an FM radio and Bluetooth.

Drivers demand seamless connectivity with their smartphone, so in addition to the usual Bluetooth integration, Ford has developed FordPass Connect, which used embedded modem to turn the vehicle into a mobile WiFi hotspot, with connectivity for up to 10 devices. The feature can also be paired with an app that would let owners remotely start or unlock the vehicle or check on its fuel or oil levels. Other highlights include an auto dimming rearview mirror, rain sensing wipers, a passive entry system and an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen display.
