Whether it’s the ST-Line Hatch, Active or ST, the Ford Focus is more than just a small car. It’s a dynamic, agile and powerful companion ready to unleash every ambition. Redesigned from the ground up, this sophisticated car was made with one person in mind. You. The Ford Focus is ready to get you moving like you mean it.
Move like you mean it
The Focus ST-Line offers the essence of Focus’ DNA with class leading driving dynamics and sport styling.
The Focus Active’s SUV-inspired design delivers practicality, flexibility and utility to put you in control of your own adventures.
Blending track-day performance with everyday driving fun. The Focus ST is designed to stand out, inside and out.
ST-3 continues ST’s class-leading driving dynamics and turbocharged performance, while also adding a dose of style and luxury to deliver the ultimate hot hatch.
The Focus is built to improve your driving experience in every way. This next generation car is packed with an impressive set of Driver Assist Technologies including Pre-collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, Intelligent Speed Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go and Lane Centring2 3. It's technology that's so effortless and useful, you'll wonder how you ever did without it.
Headlights that help you see around bends
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.
 Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle. May not operate in some driving and road conditions (including at certain speeds) or adverse weather.
Driving dynamics tailored to you
Personalise your driving experience by altering the Focus’ throttle response, steering, and even gear-change behaviour to match your driving style. Selectable drive modes include ‘Normal’, ‘Eco’ and ‘Sport’.
Smart, convenient and space saving
The electric parking brake is a simple addition that has some surprising advantages. For instance, it gives you more room in the cabin, it’s easier to apply, and you won’t have to get the brakes serviced as regularly. And to apply the brake, all you have to do is press a button in the centre console.
Helping you keep inside the speed limit
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.
An advanced system to help you stay in your lane
The Lane Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of your 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 64 km/h, or can be turned off manually.
Technology that helps see what you can't
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.
Technology that helps you see around corners
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.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go is designed to not only adjust your cruising speed but can also stop and relaunch the engine if traffic slows to a standstill. What’s more, when engaged, Lane Centering is designed to provide active steering assistance, by following road markings, to keep you centered in your lane.
Comfort and Convenience
Clean lines, a sleek layout and sophisticated look. The interior of the Focus is more comfortable, spacious and chic than ever before. And now you can feel more connected to your car than ever before with our most advanced version of SYNC®34 and new wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones.
Go hands free with SYNC3
SYNC®34 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®34 also features AppLink5, Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto, to display your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen.
Charging on the go
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.
An innovative centre console that puts you in control
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 and a sliding arm rest.
Welcome to the World of Ford Connectivity
Every 2021MY Focus comes fitted with an embedded modem known as FordPassConnect. Using the FordPass App on your smartphone6, you can locate your vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, and even start the engine remotely to heat or cool the cabin to the last known setting7.

Performance and Efficiency
The Focus is available with a powerful 1.5L EcoBoost engine, complemented by an 8-speed automatic transmission with a rotary gear shift dial. The exterior design has also been sculpted to create a shape that’s both athletic and aerodynamic, whilst helping to improve efficiency even further.
A sophisticated new 8-speed automatic transmission
With improved acceleration and super smooth gear changes, the all new 8-speed automatic transmission is engineered from the ground up to enhance your driving experience and maximise performance. We've replaced the traditional gear lever 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.
Get the most out of your engine
The new and improved 1.5 litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is 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 the engine even more efficient, it now features cylinder deactivation. This shuts off a cylinder when torque demand is low, such as on a highway. When torque demand increases, the cylinder springs back to life to give you the power you need.
Change gears fast, with your fingertips
Paddle Shifters are available with the Ford Focus automatic transmission. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gears changes at your fingertips. And because the Paddle Shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gears more efficiently when cornering.
Safety and Security
A series of smart technologies are designed to help protect you, your family and other road users. For example, Active Braking8 and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection3 can help warn you of a potential collision, and even apply the brakes automatically if you don't react in time.
Airbags to shield you from all angles
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. 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.
Stay in control whatever the conditions
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.
A system that can help protect pedestrians and cyclists
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist 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.
