Although there is less camouflage than before, it still covers many production details of the upcoming Ford Focus wagon. The most important clue comes from the greenhouse. It seems that the fourth generation of the compact estate will come with a size boost, at least in terms of length.
And while the base of the rear doors may have remained largely unchanged, it seems like the doors are longer overall. In other words, the new wagon will offer superior rear passenger legroom and a bigger boot.
Motivation for the next Ford Focus range (hatch, wagon, and sedan) will be a host of EcoBoost and turbo diesel mills, including the 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo via the new Fiesta ST to show up, albeit in a lower state of tune. A hybrid is clearly coming (no details known yet, so anything is possible, from a mild hybrid to a plug-in application). Nevertheless, it's unclear whether Ford is ready to bring us an all-electric incarnation of the Focus.
Wagon aside, the 2019 Ford Focus should also receive an Active body style, which, as is the case with the new Fiesta, will impersonate a crossover (all-wheel-drive is not likely, though). Ever since the original model returned in 1998, the Focus was never the class reference when it came to perceived cabin quality of infotainment and so the Blue Oval is expected to address this for the newcomer. A digital dash and the Fiesta-like setup of the upcoming Focus interior will be added. Ford has already made the necessary investments to bring the new Focus to the market next year
