The all-new Ford Focus range, recently released in Australia, introduces a new-look, four-tier model line-up. The range comprises entry-level Ambiente, mid-series Trend, dynamic Sport and luxury Titanium models.

The Ambiente is an introduction to the all-new Focus range and comes to market with a Manufacturer's List Price* (MLP*) at $21,990* for the five-speed manual transmission variant, which is the same starting price as the outgoing entry-level LV series Focus MkII CL model.

The mid-series Focus Trend effortlessly merges stylish design with innovation and convenience, as well as introducing the 2.0-litre GDi petrol or Duratorq TDCi diesel engines to the Focus range.

Ford Focus Trend also provides customers with a host of additional features including cruise control, front fog lights, alloy wheels and an optional Convenience Pack with auto headlights, automatic rain sensing windscreen wipers, auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror and 'follow me home' lighting.

The MLP* for Trend starts at $24,490* for the 2.0-litre GDi petrol engine with five-speed manual transmission.

Focus Titanium features the very latest innovative technology and contemporary luxury, making it the ultimate all-new Focus model. With standard equipment including Active Park Assist, Ford Smart Key keyless entry system and Power start button, partial leather seat trim, heated front seats and 18-inch alloy wheels, the MLP* for Titanium starts at $32,590* for 2.0-litre GDi engine and six-speed PowerShift transmission variants.

Now on sale locally, the all-new Focus is an important element of the Ford product portfolio in Australia's highly competitive small car market.

"In every world market where Focus competes, customers are looking for expressive design, affordable innovation, superior quality, responsive performance and exceptional fuel efficiency," said Bob Graziano, President and CEO, Ford Australia.

"In Australia, the all-new Focus presents all these elements in one outstanding package. It raises the bar in all these areas, which will not only delight our existing customers but also expand the appeal of the Focus brand to a whole new generation of Ford customers."
