The new Ford Focus estate — we found this image lurking in the folds of the press pack — will have sportier styling than today’s model, but smaller luggage-carrying capacity. Revealed at the Paris Motor Show next month and on sale in March 2006, it will have a 475-litre boot, extendable to 1525 litres with the seats down. That’s a cut of 45 and 55 litres respectively. Engines will mirror the rest of the Focus range, as will higher equipment levels, all of which are revealed in this week's new Focus special. Prices will be slightly higher than today, although Ford claims better value for money.
