As one of the best-selling vehicles on the U.S. market the Ford Focus is always in the center of attention when new model is delivered. At the Geneva Motor Show we were able to see the 2015 Ford Focus but the official debut was at the 2014 Mobile World Congress that was held slightly before Geneva Show, in Barcelona.
One Ford design language will be implemented for this vehicle also and we were able to see results on Fiesta and Mondeo so we can say that it looks promising. Changes to the front were delivered to the grille, bonnet and front fascia, when this is combined with wider road presence and lower placement of the entire vehicle we can easily notice that this is much more aggressive vehicle with far better looks.
With changes to the fog lamps and headlights this vehicle now comes with higher level of refinement, more appealing looks and aggressive stance. At the back we have redesigned tail lights making it sleeker and more beautiful. Added chrome accents to this vehicle are noticeable and further enhance its elegance.
Changes to the interior are also noticeable, it is obvious that Ford listened to the customers and implemented few different solutions that now make this vehicle much nicer place to be with higher level of comfort. Cleaner and more modern looks is achieved with large 8 inch touch screen that provides controls to audio, navigation, climate and other in car systems. Additional sound insulation like acoustic glass, thicker carpets and more material for the engine bay significantly reduced noise in the cabin lowering the fatigue level on long journeys.

As the fuel economy is the most important when buying new cars for the U.S. customers the 2015 Ford Focus has a lot to offer. According to the company this vehicle will bring from 10 to 20 percent lower fuel consumption depending on the engine and transmission choice. European market will receive 1.0 liter EcoBoost unit with 100 and 125 hp which should offer about 17 percent lower fuel economy that the precious model. With the 1.5 liter EcoBoost unit we will have choice of 150 and 180 hp version and with tech that it shares with smaller 1.0 liter EcoBoost unit it should return impressive fuel economy figures.
Europe will also receive 1.5 liter TDCi turbocharged diesel unit that will produce 95 or 120 hp depending on the state of tune and with this unit new Focus should be able to reduce fuel consumption for about 19 percent compared to previous model. More power from diesel units will be coming from 2.0 liter TDCi engine that pumps out 150 hp and when paired with automatic transmission it will offer about 13 percent lower fuel consumption and with the manual transmission it will bring 14 percent reduction.
2015 Ford Focus Release Date
Since this vehicle has been already officially presented we do expect to see it available in the next few months at dealerships. Eight factories on four continents will produce the 2015 Ford Focus and as a result we will have about two cars per minute to a total 1.5 million vehicle per year. This is needed to achieve the sale goals that this car maker set for its new Focus.
