2019 Ford Focus Hatchback Spotted Once More: Spy Shots

Sponsored Links

Another prototype for the all-new, 2019 Ford Focus hatchback has been photographed testing incognito, showing off the forthcoming compact car’s new, not-so-compact size. The camouflage-clad prototype is visibly longer in both wheelbase and body length than the current-generation Ford Focus, and it’s expected to grow in width, as well.

The spy shots are available over at Autoblog.com.

This prototype sports the same angular, horizontal taillights that have been seen on previous Focus prototypes. The front fascia is too heavily obscured to give much away, but Autoblog compares its appearance to that of the all-new, 2018 Ford Fiesta in Europe. A strong familial resemblance seems highly likely as Ford evolves its small-car design language; thanks to spy shots published last June, we already know that the 2019 Focus’ interior is poised to borrow heavily from that of the new Fiesta.

Perhaps more interesting, Autoblog points out that the rear quarter glass on the new Ford Focus prototype is now part of the door. This stands in contrast to the current model, where the quarter glass was positioned behind the trailing edge of the door. Stylistically, that’s not such a huge change, but it could make for easier ingress to the rear of the car, which should suit the Chinese market especially well.

The all-new, 2019 Ford Focus is expected to enter production in mid-2019, with North American production shifting from Michigan to China. Stay tuned for more on the forthcoming fourth-generation Ford Focus compact as it breaks.
