Base price for Focus rises to £20,645, with minor increases on specific models across range and new Active Vignale variant
29 October 2019

Ford has revised the Focus lineup in the UK, with the removal of the entry-level Style model, a new trim grade added and small price increases on certain models. 

The dropping of Style trim, a model often ignored by buyers in favour of better equipped trims, means that the Focus now starts from £20,645 for the Zetec grade - £2,100 more than before. That brings it to a similar pricing point as the new Puma, which is available to order in higher trim grades for the time being. 

A series of small price rises have also been implemented elsewhere in the range, according to the firm's latest pricing lists which are in the process of being incorporated into the online configurator. All Zetec, Active and ST-Line grades see a bump up of £250, while estates rise by £100 and petrols rise by £500. 

Two new variants are now available to order, too. Joining the current two-strong lineup of ruggedly-styled Active models is a flagship Active Vignale, available from £27,045, which brings the extensive kit tally from the standard Vignale model onto the higher-riding car. 

The tweaks follow a more minor revision of the Focus which regards to one model, quietly implemented earlier this year. The 1.5-litre petrol engine has been switched from the multi-link rear suspension to a cheaper, simpler torsion beam setup, leaving only the 2.0-litre diesel models with the multi-link setup.

What exactly has it got to do with Brexit? 

I didnt realise every change to a manufacturers spec or vehcle line up was Brexit related, I suspect its just a readjustment to bring it line with the Fiesta which also saw its base spec version taken off sale earlier this season.

What on earth is subtle about it?. It is here and on the website under PRICE LIST. Try a 1992 Corsa 1.2 LS...oh that's already your fun/weekend car.

No, re-pricing and inflation. Happens all the time.

"ANSWER"?.

 

What is repricing and what has the rise in the rate of inflation been over the last six months?.

Why would the 2L diesel retain the multilink suspension, but not the 1.5L petrol?

Easier to balance the lighter 3-pot handling to a torsion beam whilst cutting costs?

I'd say this is the swan song of Ford cars in Europe. Make a bit more money on the last few.

Although their names may survive on Ford versions of the VW ID electric cars, the demise of Ford Europe is too advanced to be halted now. Failure to move with the times, cashing in on defunct outdated designs and manufacturing in high cost European plants has brought this about. Ford? A once great name that will be remembered as the instigator of mass market, production line cars: written off. Except for a badge on VW's and a host of gas guzzling trucks...

It's a shame that the petrol has dropped the multi link rear suspension; ride and handling was one of the factors that made the mk 1 Focus such a success. Have they thrown the baby out with the bath water?
