About Ford Focus
The second generation Focus was introduced at the Paris Motor Show on September 25, 2004, as a three- and five-door hatchback and estate, while the new car was previewed in four-door sedan form at the Beijing Motor Show in mid-2004 as the “Focus Concept” designed by Ford Europe.
The basic suspension design, which was essential in the Mk 1’s success, was largely carried over from the previous model. Ford claims that this, along with a 10% stiffer bodyshell, provides a smoother ride, but detractors argue the car lacks the precise and poised handling of the Mk 1. The sedan did not arrive until mid-2005, however it came in the same body styles as the Mk 1 Focus. In 2007, the line-up was expanded to include a two-door coupé-cabriolet with a retractable hardtop.
The Focus Mk 2 is larger and heavier than its predecessor, with a wheelbase increase of 25 mm (0.98 in), a length of 168 mm (6.6 in), a height of 8 mm (0.31 in), and a width of 138 mm (5.4 in). As a result, both the interior and boot space have grown. A KeyFree system, a solar-reflect windscreen, adaptive front lighting, Bluetooth hands-free phones, and voice control for audio, telephone, and climate control systems are just a few of the new features.
The design language of the Mk 2 is similar to that of the Mondeo and Fiesta. The new car, while still recognizable as a Focus, borrows styling cues from the abandoned B-Proposal for the original Focus, which was never produced.
Ford debuted the Focus ST, an MK.II version of Ford’s sports division, in 2005. Using a 2.5-litre, five-cylinder turbocharged engine from Volvo, this one produced 225 bhp (168 kW) and could go from 0 to 60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, with a top speed of 152 mph (245 km/h).
A minor facelifted version was introduced in 2007–2008, reflecting Ford’s Kinetic Design philosophy. The huge trapezoidal lower grille was replaced with a new bonnet with more creases, the removal of all mouldings around the doors and sides, new sculpted pull back headlights, and a new sculpted pull back headlamps.
The new Focus RS was introduced in 2009, and it featured a tweaked version of the 2.5-litre engine found in the ST.
The development of products for the North American market took a different route. The restyled 2008–2011 version has been available as a two-door coupe and four-door sedan since its debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show; hatchbacks and wagons have been retired. New seats, a new dashboard design with a message center on top of the dashboard, ambient lighting, dashboard panels that imitate brushed aluminum, and Ford’s voice-controlled Sync audio/Bluetooth system were all included in the revamp. A support beam behind the dashboard was also included in the redesign for added structural integrity.
Despite being referred to as the second generation unofficially, Ford never officially called to it as such because its platform was the same as the first.
