Will the 2019 Ford Focus emerge as the best family hatchback?

The Ford Focus is considered as the market leader in the family hatchback segment and it is being rivalled by vehicles like Volkswagen Golf and the Mazda 3. The Mazda 3 hatchback is known to deliver an exciting driving experience while the Volkswagen Golf has won customers for its smooth comfortable ride.

Ford has decided to take on its hatchback rivals by stretching the Focus’s wheelbase and by equipping the 2019 Ford Focus with a turbocharged engine. A non-camouflaged version of the 2019 Ford Focus was recently spotted during a phot0 shoot and the leaked images clearly reveal that the upcoming model of the Ford Focus has been endowed with a muscular look.

With renewed vigour and muscular looks, the all new 2019 Ford Focus is bound to appeal to customers who value practicality over anything else.



More Spacious

At first glance, the 2019 Ford Focus will look big and spacious due to the increased dimensions. Indeed, Ford has endowed the upcoming Ford Focus with roomier cabins that will enable rear passengers to enjoy more legroom.

As of now, the details regarding the interiors have not been revealed and it is safe to speculate that the cabin will feature a premium quality of upholstery that will be at par with the cabin materials found in the Volkswagen Golf. The black grille on the front as well as the sleek headlights give an aggressive look to the car.


The Powertrain

In the absence of any official announcement, speculations are rife over the type of engine that will be fitted in the 2019 Ford Focus. Experts believe that the base version will be equipped with 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged engine while the ST version will get a 2-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine. There will also be a RS version that will be released in April 2018.


The Competition

The 2019 Ford Focus might be officially launched at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. In recent years, the Ford Focus has been facing stiff competition from new players like Chevrolet Cruz, Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic.  In the Dubai hatchback market, the Ford Focus has always been considered as one of the cars that deliver best fuel economy figures.

The 2019 Ford Focus will be one of the heavily upgraded version of the popular hatchback that used to consistently win awards in its segment. It remains to be seen whether the new Ford Focus manage to beat the competition and regain its lost glory.
