Spy Shots: Revised Ford Focus Hits the Ice in Sweden
With three years on its ticker, the Focus is ripe for a mid-cycle refresh, and our spy shooters caught a few of these revised Foci out for a testing session. This time around, the Focus sedan and hatchback were caught on ice in Sweden, and the sedan version gave us a nice glimpse of the grille and taillights.
From these little sneak peeks, we can see that the taillights and grille will be revised, and this leads us to assume that the headlights will undergo a pretty significant overhaul too. In fact, this revision is one of the biggest I’ve seen in a while that was not a full overhaul. Leaked images and rumors point toward the typical Aston Martin-like grill, more rounded headlights, a smoother hood and revised bumpers.
Under its hood, the revised Focus will carry over its entire engine lineup and inherit the new 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine that should put down around 100 horsepower. Keep it locked in on TopSpeed.com for more details.

Though there are no interior images here, he do know that the 2015 Focus will feature a later navigation screen and a cleaner center stack with fewer buttons and knobs. We’re a little put off by the fact that the Focus will inherit that Aston Martin grille, as this was one of the last Ford models to inherit this feature.
The 2014 Ford Focus rolled in as a little more than a carryover from the previous year. Under its hood, it came standard with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that laid out 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. Buyers could, however, opt for the Focus ST and get a turbocharged 2-liter with 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of twist.
Prices for the base 2014 Focus start at $16,605 and the ST starts at $24,115.
