Interior design and technology – Ford Focus

17 April 2019

The fourth-generation Ford Focus emerged last year, marking the brand's 20th anniversary. As in the previous generation, the model is available with sedan, hatchback and estate body styles.

It joins the Active versions of the Ka+ and Fiesta. Continuing QUBE/just-auto's review of interior design and technology trends, we climb aboard an Active to take a closer look.
