Step into the outdoors with the fantastic All-New Focus Active, the first Crossover Focus with rugged body mouldings, raised ride height and varied drive modes this is the Focus for people who like to make life into one big adventure.
This next generation car is packed with advanced features like Ford Co-Pilot360, an impressive set of Driver Assist Technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go and Lane Centring, and Active Park Assist 2. Together, these smart technologies can help manage acceleration, braking, and even steering.
It’s technology that’s so effortless and useful, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
Ford Co-Pilot360 combines a range of technologies that, together, work to make your driving experience more comfortable and more enjoyable than ever. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go automatically adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. If traffic slows to a standstill, the engine will automatically stop and restart when the road clears. The system can even recognise speed signs and adjust your cruise control speed accordingly. Lane Centring technology can also provide steering assistance by following road markings to help keep you positioned in the middle of your lane.
The Blind Spot Information System uses RADAR sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your Focus and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.
Cross Traffic Alert is part of the Blind Spot Information System. When you’re reversing out of a space and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic).
Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights and daytime running lights deliver a precise and intensely bright light pattern that automatically adjusts to suit different road and driving conditions. In addition, the glare-free high beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers, and the new system can even read the curve of the road to illuminate corners and crossings before you enter them.
Personalise your driving experience by altering the Focus’ throttle response, steering, and even gear-change behaviour to match your driving style. There are up to seven different modes including Normal, ECO, Sport, Comfort, Eco-Comfort, Slippery and Trail.
The Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Aid provides gentle steering torque assistance to help guide you back into your lane. If your wheel touches the line or edge of the road, Lane Keeping Alert vibrates the steering wheel and displays a visual warning. The technology automatically deactivates at speeds below 43 mph (64 km/h), or can be turned off manually.
Evasive Steering Assist helps you steer around stopped or slower vehicles to avoid collisions. The system uses radar and a camera to detect slower-moving and stationary vehicles ahead, and provides steering support to help you avoid a vehicle if a collision is imminent. The technology activates if there’s insufficient space to avoid a collision by braking and you initiate evasive action.
Post collision braking helps reduce the likelihood of a secondary collision in the event of an accident. If the system detects an accident, it automatically applies the emergency brakes. This helps to prevent the car rolling towards oncoming traffic or other obstacles in the road.
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling around corners and over undulations in the road.
Split-View Camera technology helps you to see traffic that’s coming from the rear sides. It works by showing you a near 180-degree image of the area behind your vehicle. This helps you to spot obstacles that can’t be seen over your shoulder, or in the mirrors when you’re reversing.
The All-New Focus is packed with advanced safety technology. Some systems are designed to help reduce the severity of collisions, while others can help prevent them altogether. And as proof of its ability to protect you, your passengers and other road users, the All-New Focus has been awarded a maximum 5-star rating by Euro NCAP under their new stringent 2018 test and assessment protocols.
Driver Alert constantly monitors your driving behaviour and is designed to detect any changes that could be caused by fatigue. If the system identifies you’re becoming less vigilant, a warning icon appears in the display, suggesting you take a break. If your driving alertness further declines, the message is repeated and combined with a chime.
Live Traffic delivers up-to-date traffic information directly to your SYNC 3 navigation system every 30 seconds. The technology then adjusts your recommended route based on the traffic conditions, helping you to arrive more relaxed and on time.
Intelligent Speed Assist is designed to enhance your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, a front-facing camera automatically detects the current speed limit. If activated, the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit.
This system adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. If traffic slows to a standstill, this smart technology can bring your vehicle to a complete stop. And when the traffic clears, the car will automatically accelerate back up to the pre-set speed.
Clean lines, a sleek layout and sophisticated look. The interior of the All-New Focus is more comfortable, spacious and chic than ever before.

SYNC 3 is our most advanced version to date. It’s faster and easier to use, with enhanced voice commands and even more functionality. The new interface has larger buttons for improved usability, and the colour Touchscreen now features pinch-and-swipe gestures found on smartphones and tablets for even more intuitive navigation. SYNC 3 also features AppLink, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
The interior of the Focus is designed to maximise space and convenience. For example, the large media bin in front of the gear lever is big enough for even the largest smartphones. And with wireless charging also available for compatible smartphones, it has never been easier to make sure your devices are always ready to use.
Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. That’s exactly what you can expect in the All-New Focus. Why? Because it’s available with B&O. This premium level 675-watt audio system delivers a rich, powerful sound via a 10-speaker, woofer and subwoofer inclusive set-up. This advanced technology has been specifically designed, developed and fine-tuned for the Focus by B&O’s specialist acousticians. So, turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.
An advanced, multi-functional centre console enables you to control many of the vehicle’s systems from one place. There’s also useful storage box, a sliding arm rest, plus a cover over the cup holder (on manual transmission).
It’s easy to bang your door against things in tight parking spaces. But open any of the four doors on a Focus and a protective barrier springs out to shield the paintwork on your car and those alongside.
To avoid accidental damage, power-foldable mirrors fold inwards when you’re parked. Tucked back, they also protect the stylish integrated indicators. They’re heated, too, which means quicker getaways on frosty mornings.
The Focus is available with a full-length panoramic roof that completely replaces the steel roof panel. This lets natural light flood into the car to create a light and airy interior. The front half is power-operated and can tilt or slide right back, and a full-length, retractable sunshade lets you open the glass to get some fresh air while staying protected from the sun.
If you’ve got your hands full, and your Focus Wagon senses the proximity of your KeyFree key fob, all you have to do is wave your foot under the rear bumper and the tailgate will automatically open or close.
This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, because the wrong nozzle simply won’t fit. Even better, as Ford Easy-Fuel is a capless system, you’ll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
The All-New Focus is the first Ford to feature this advanced new automatic transmission. With improved acceleration and super-smooth gear changes, it’s engineered from the ground up to enhance your driving experience and maximise performance. We've replaced the traditional gear leaver with a console-mounted rotary gear shift dial. This gives the interior a cleaner, more modern layout. And there's another useful feature: when you park your car, the shifter automatically sets itself to parking mode. Only available on automatic.
The 6-speed manual transmission in Focus has been optimised to make gear selection easier, more precise and quieter. It has been specially engineered to improve driving dynamics and reduce fuel consumption, too, helping to make your drive more exhilarating whilst reducing trips to the petrol station.
The 1.5 and 2.0 litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines are highly advanced, turbo-charged engines that deliver measurably improved efficiency, performance and refinement. These new engines can improve fuel efficiency, are more responsive and are also quieter than ever before. They’ll also be available with AdBlue® , a urea/water-based fluid that converts NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust.
The new and improved 1.0 and 1.5 litre Ford EcoBoost 3-cylinder petrol engines are designed to give you all the power you’d expect from much larger engines. Ford EcoBoost technology delivers performance that’s smooth, responsive and rewarding. To make them even more efficient, both engines now feature cylinder deactivation. This shuts off a cylinder when torque demand is low, such as on a motorway. When torque demand increases, the cylinder springs back to life to give you the power you need.
The innovative Ford Eco Mode system continually assess the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. It’ll also analyse your speed gear shifting, braking and anticipation levels, plus the number of short and long journeys you make. You can also change the driving mode to Eco for best results.
When you’re driving slowly, the Active Grille Shutter system keeps the grille vent open to cool the engine. When you pick up speed it can automatically close, improving aerodynamics and helping to save fuel. Over time, this technology can make a big difference to fuel efficiency.
Normally only found on high end sports cars, Paddle Shifters are available with the All-New Ford Focus when you choose the automatic transmission. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the Paddle Shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is detected, it’ll then provide you with a warning. If you don’t respond in time, the system can automatically apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions.
Active Braking is an innovative safety technology that uses the front camera to scan the road ahead. If it detects a collision is likely (at whatever speed you’re travelling), the system will warn you and if you don’t react, primes the brakes then starts braking to help slow you down.
In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. There are also front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, seatbelt reminders for all seats, and a display that shows which occupied seats don’t have their seatbelts fastened.
eCall is an in-vehicle system which immediately alerts the emergency services of a collision. After being triggered by the car’s airbag sensors it will transmit the exact location of the incident and the number of passenger in the car. The technology also allows voice communication with a safety operator.
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels to help stabilise it.
If it detects any of your tyres starting to lose pressure during your journey, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns you by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.
With impressive load space, you’ll never be short of room for your luggage. Tall passengers in the front or the rear will also appreciate the extra knee and leg room, especially on longer journeys. And an adjustable load floor and a hands-free tailgate (Estate) make loading your car as easy as it can be.
The ultra-modern new design doesn’t just help provide a more enjoyable driving experience. It also gives you loads more space. The interior is roomier, lighter and airier than ever before, providing a more sophisticated and relaxing, yet invigorating ambience.
Included as standard on Estate only, the floor of the boot has two height settings, so you can create a hidden compartment of varying size underneath. When set in its highest position, and with the rear seats folded, you get a completely flat load floor. There’s space under the adjustable load floor to store the tonneau cover, too.
Whatever body style you choose, the All-New Focus has been designed to give you all the space you need. The rear seats can be split 60/40 to maximise versatility, and they can fold flat, giving you more luggage space than ever before. There’s even a handy load-through ski hatch.
