We've worked out nine of the 10 Focus variants - but what's missing?
13 January 2010

Of the proposed 10 Focus variants due by 2012, Ford has already shown the C-Max and Grand C-Max MPVs.

The Detroit-launched hatchback and saloon models will hit the market early next year, although there will not be a three-door hatch. An estate will soon follow.

New Ford Focus: full details and pictures

A three-door coupé — a rival for Volkswagen’s Scirocco — is also known to be in the frame, and Ford is considering a soft-top convertible that would replace the folding hard-top Focus CC, which has not been a success and will not be directly replaced.

Both of those variants are likely to be most popular in the US, where they could conceivably be made and shipped in modest numbers back to Europe.

Throw in two versions of the next Kuga — a regular model and a longer-wheelbase seven-seater, also likely to be popular in America — and you have nine.

The tenth will be an electric version of the car.

Surely its got to be the Ford Focus Ute for the Australian Market!

And based on what we've seen, all 10 will be overstyled (inside and out). I've always liked the Mk 2 and now appreciate it even more...
