The Ford Focus Active is a crossover vehicle that Ford plans to release in the US in late 2019. It will replace the Ford Focus sedan (1998-2019). The Ford Focus Active is planned to be a raised, body-cladded version of its Focus hatchback. It is planned to be built in China and is projected to cost in the low $20,000 range.. The Ford Focus Active is sold in the UK since January 2019 and costs around ₤22,000.
The Ford Focus Active got its nameplate from its predecessor Ford Focus. It is one of only two small cars that Ford will continue to sell in North America after 2020. The other small car is the Ford Mustang.
Design, Engines and Fuel Economy[edit | edit source]
The Ford Focus Active is based on the Ford Focus 4th Generation Hatchback. It has tougher-looking front and rear bumpers, protective black plastic cladding lining the arches and sills, a set of roof rails, and a raised ride height courtesy of revised suspension and larger tyres. Four engines are brought over from the standard Focus, with two petrols (1.0-liter/123bhp and 1.5-liter EcoBoost/148bhp) and two diesel (1.5-liter diesel, 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel). The 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost can manage around 45mpg while the more powerful 1.5-liter petrol engine returns just over 40mpg. The diesel versions return just above 50 mpg.
Active wagon[edit | edit source]
Ford released the Active wagon in the UK and Australia to replace the Taurus Wagon. The wagon seats up to eight passengers. Despite the Flex Ford will not sell the wagon in North America.
