After mentioning the outing of the 2019 Ram 1500 yesterday, we find the 2019 Ford Focus Wagon and hatchback have also been prematurely exposed by spy shots. In two separate sightings, the next generation Focus has been shown and captured. Both of these Fords are due early next year but it’s good to get a sneak peek in advance.
2019 Ford Focus Wagon
The 2019 Ford Focus Wagon was spotted on the Nürburgring in Germany being put through its paces. A series of images shown on Motor Authority shows the Wagon version of the Focus covered in camouflage but with many elements clear to see.
One thing we notice about the Focus is that it looks longer. Yes a wagon is of course longer, but the passenger space also looks longer. This is borne out in the hatch shots too. While the spy shots don’t make it very clear, commentators say the new Focus will be wider as well as longer.
We don’t know whether we will get the 2019 Ford Focus Wagon here in Canada or not. With production slated for early next year, we should find out soon enough.
2019 Ford Focus hatchback
We are much more likely to see the 2019 Ford Focus hatchback on our shores than the wagon. Spy shots over at Auto Blog show a similar outline to the wagon but with a hatch at the back instead. The chassis definitely looks to be longer here but I cannot tell if it is actually wider or not.
A longer car will be mean more passenger room. The current Focus can seat four adults comfortably but I don’t think anyone would argue against even more passenger space. The rear doors have changed to reflect this space. On current cars, the door is more squared off with a separate quarterlight leading to the rear. On this model, the quarterlight has been integrated into the door itself.
Those spy shots also show a slightly revised front end with new lights, different grill shape and a very curved hood. Depending on how much of that is camouflage, we can expect some new looking Focus soon.
We have no information on the types of engine for either of these cars but we expect Ford to continue the trend for smaller engines with turbochargers. This not only helps manage production costs but also helps meet emissions targets and gas mileage figures.
If you would like to know more about either car, they should be appearing at an auto show early next year. For some big savings on the current range of Ford cars, visit Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2.
