All-New, 2019 Ford Focus To Debut In April

The all-new, 2019 Ford Focus will bow this April at a stand-alone event, according to a company spokesperson. It was expected that the redesigned compact car would debut in early-March at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, but that expectation has been dashed.

Instead, Ford will pull into Geneva with facelifted versions of the mid-size Edge crossover and subcompact Ka+ car. The refreshed, European-market Ford Edge will likely bear a strong resemblance to the North American one just shown at the Detroit Auto Show, although it remains to be seen whether Europe, like North America, will be given the option of a performance-oriented ST model. The current-generation Ka+ was just introduced in Europe for the 2017 model year.

The 2019 Ford Focus has been spotted in OEM camouflage on multiple occasions, and the new car is expected to be both longer and wider than the outgoing one. European models like the sporty ST-Line, premium Vignale, and a spacious, five-door estate should go on sale later this year in Europe, eventually followed by a performance-oriented ST and an SUV-inspired Active model. In North America, the all-new Ford Focus is expected to launch months later, in mid-to-late-2019, with production taking place in China.
