2015 Ford Focus ST facelift revealed with inside-out changes

Ford has unveiled the updated Focus ST, which is shown to the public at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The facelifted Focus ST features modified bumpers, a new bonnet, restyled fog lights, slimmer headlights and new 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior is also redesigned with a more intuitive and simpler layout, revealing fewer buttons and better connection between key components. There is a new flat bottom steering wheel, Recaro seats, a redesigned centre stack, a new centre console with a media bin that houses a smart USB charger and SYNC 2 connectivity system with high-resolution 8-inch colour touch screen and class-leading voice control.

The 247bhp 2.0-litre EcoBoost carries over with improved fuel economy thanks to Auto-Start-Stop technology. 0-62mph comes in 6.5 seconds and fuel efficiency is rated at 41.5mpg with CO2 emissions of 158 g/km.

In addition there is a new diesel Focus ST with a 182bhp 2.0-litre TDCi with 0-62mph taking 8.1 seconds, while fuel economy is 64.2mpg with CO2 emissions of 114 g/km.

Other under the skin changes include new chassis control technologies, tuned suspension and steering, as well as bespoke tyre specification, all ensuring an even more responsive, balanced and refined driving experience.

Order books open from autumn 2014 with pricing to be confirmed closer to the on-sale date. First cars will arrive in dealerships from early 2015.
