For the start, the all-new 2020 Ford Focus looks bigger, but that is not the case. The dimensions will stay intact and this car now looks sleeker and it comes with the style. As we wrote, both new chassis and suspension are all-new. The new platform is Ford’s next-gen modular architecture that will underpin all of the companies smaller cars.

With all of the changes under the skin, Focus will offer less rigidity and better handling. The wheelbase is stretched so the interior will get slightly more room. Latest innovation on this model is hands-free tailgate that opens by swiping your foot under the rear bumper.

New Interior Features

The forthcoming 2020 Ford Focus will get numerous interior updates. For an instance, the room inside the cabin is much greater thanks to the longer wheelbase. Thanks to this change, Focus now offers up to three additional inches of legroom. Fold the rear seats flat and the cargo space will provide 48 cubic feet on hatchback models. Wagon models will provide 58 cubic feet of space.

Moreover, new Focus will benefit from plenty of electrical features and new driver assistance amenities. That includes FordPass Connect, Wi-Fi hotspot, remote door unlocking, and remote start. Furthermore, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Ford’s Sync3 system are all in the offer.
