We hunt for the first time a test mule of the Ford Focus Sportbreak new generation. The variant family body 2018 Ford Focus is underway. At the technological level it will be very substantial progress, while the aesthetic section, we face an evolution of the current model. It will arrive at dealerships next year.
The current generation Ford Focus came to market in the
2010. From then until today, has been making occasional
point and a small redesign in 2014. However, time passes
for everyone and years and will weigh the current Focus. For a long time
we knew that Ford engineers were working on the next generation,

Therefore, thanks to this increase in size, will offer a more spacious cabin, especially for rear seat passengers. For its part, the trunk will increase the load capacity.
