2020 Ford Focus Redesign Exterior & Interior
The new Ford Focus 2020 is going to continue the lineup’s charming, sporty look. But, it will incorporate European-style taillights, which emphasize the car’s rear view width. Both the headlights and the taillights will be smaller, more clear-cut and use LEDs. There will be some aerodynamic enhancements as well. With these enhancements, the car will have a lively look. Ford will also incorporate sweeping creases on the car’s sides.
The exterior redesign is created specifically to give the 2020 Focus a slight transformation from the current model. There will be several exterior colors available: black, shadow black, oxford white, red, blue, magnetic metallic and ingot silver metallic.
Interior of Focus 2020
Speaking of the 2020 Ford Focus ST interior, you can expect a bigger cabin. Since the new Focus will have greater dimensions than its predecessor, expect more legroom. Not only that, the interior materials are said to be of higher quality than the current model. If this is true, the new Focus will provide better driving experience.
There will also a MyKey feature as well. This feature will help the driver to set limits to speed, which is great for young drivers. Keyless entry, a tilt-steering column, air conditioning and audio device is standard. More features will be included in upper models

The new Ford Focus is said to be available with a new 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder, turbocharged EcoBoost engine capable of generating up to 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. The car is going to use the engines of its predecessor as well. The other two engines available are a 1-liter, 3-cylinder engine with up to 123 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque and a 2-liter, inline-four turbocharged engine with up to 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.
