The next-generation Ford Focus, already the subject of numerous spy photos in both hatchback and sedan form, has now finally been spotted as a station wagon, wearing obfuscating camouflage and cladding. You can see the spy shots yourself over at Motor1.com.
Like its sedan and hatchback counterparts, the next Ford Focus wagon is expected to be larger than the car it replaces, both lengthwise and widthwise. This spied prototype appears to corroborate that belief – at least in one dimension – with what looks like a significantly longer wheelbase.
In addition, Motor1 points to the presence of two small cameras on the lower grille as evidence that the fourth-generation Ford Focus could be set to gain some new semi-autonomous features. It’s a safe assumption that Ford’s next compact will offer a forward collision alert system; could we also see the introduction of Ford’s promised “Evasive Steering Assist”, which helps drivers maneuver around approaching obstacles when necessary? Time will tell.
Unfortunately for us Americans, the Ford Focus hasn’t been sold in wagon form here since 2007, making the chances that this roomy new C-segment will actually launch in the US scarce. Nonetheless, you can find the recent spy shots on the Motor1 website.
