Ford’s folding hardtop Focus model has received a face-lift in time for the Geneva Motor Show. The changes are mostly cosmetic with new front end styling and an updated interior. Engines remain the same with 1.6 and 2.0 litre petrol engines as well as a 2.0 litre diesel. The convertible roof is also unchanged as an efficient two-piece folding hardtop.
The Focus Coupe-Cabriolet is built on Ford’s behalf by Pininfarina at their Bairo plant, near Turin in Italy. Despite requests from US drivers it remains only available in Europe. Ford’s decision not to market this car in the US may lie with Pininfarina’s manufacturing contract and the cost of imports however the Volvo C70 is based on the same platform and sells in both continents.
