2019 Ford Focus interior




I thought there might have been a chance to see the new Focus at the New York auto show.
But no.

Ford is keeping it for later. (Not sure when)

Meanwhile, here are a couple of shots of the interior. Still a bit camouflaged.
Looking OK. Nothing really stands out (Except the stupid tablet screen)

By the time this comes out, there will be plenty of great competition. Not only from the current Civic. But also from the all new Corolla. Jetta. Forte etc...
(This already doesn't look better than the Civic. Or the Cruze hatchback I was driving a couple of weeks ago. )

This will be the first huge test for a car "made in China".

Looking rather generic

Time to get over the whole tablet aspect, Vince. We're seeing it from Hyundai, Kia, Ford, Honda, and Nissan...in addition to Mazda, etc. It's going to be around for quite a while so you might as well get used to it. Driving a vehicle with this layout is actually really great in actuality, as I'm sure you realized when you test drove the Mazda 6.

We got it, you hate the tablet approach to entertainment interface placement. Other than that I love your site. Move on already!

The tablet allows for less bulky dash designs.

Made in China? No thanks. Unless it's $5000 less than anything else similar in size, I'd rather get a Corolla Hatch, Mazda3 Sport or VW Golf.

I don't like the tablet infotainment screen either, but it definitely helps free up interior room and declutters the dashboard. Good for small cars. Minimalist design also looks more elegant.

Reminds me of a last generation Mazda 3.

Ford may live to regret their decision to import cars built in China to the US. Trump's tariff on Chinese aluminum and steel has already got a response from China...Ford could be stuck in a very ugly trade war.

I can clearly say this. It could have AWD, 1,000 horsepower and outperform a Bugatti. But it’s a Ford Focus. And it’s ugly. And this is such a waste of everyone’s time.
