The American giant received tremendous response for its Ford Figo which is now among the top 5 selling hatchbacks in the country. This increasing popularity of Ford vehicles in the subcontinent has propelled the company to launch Focus which has been a massive success in the U.S.

The all new Ford Focus is a gorgeous sedan with vibrant exteriors, comfortable interiors and powerful engine. The D-segment car would be different from others with its awe-inspiring, screaming speed and flamboyant aerodynamic styling which is sure to turn heads around and make neighbours jealous of you. If it’s Ford, it has to have high class convenience and safety features and the Focus is not left untouched with it by being one of the safest sedans in the world.

The classic Focus will be competing with the likes of Hyundai Verna, Fiat Linea, Honda City and the Volkswagen Vento. The price is expected to be around 11 lakh in India.
