The next-generation Ford Focus compact has been spied testing in its hatchback visage, well in advance of its launch anticipated in 2018 for the 2019 model year. Carscoops has a full gallery of stills depicting the future car in heavy camouflage.

The North American version of the next Ford Focus will be built at Ford’s Hermosillo Stamping and Assembly Plant in Mexico, as opposed to the Michigan Assembly Plant where the current-generation compact is built. In exchange for the small-car, Michigan Assembly will be tapped to produce the next North American Ford Ranger pickup and Bronco SUV.

The 2019 Ford Focus is expected to grow in size relative to the current model; previous test-mule photographs revealed extra sheet metal had been added to the body in order to grow both its length and width. The extra space ought to help it better compete with direct rivals like the Vauxhall Astra and Volkswagen Golf in terms of legroom. The extensive cladding worn by this test car make it hard to decipher exactly how the Ford Focus’ styling will change.
