Improved Ford Focus Backseat Space Makes It Even More Family-Friendly

The Ford Focus is a versatile compact car, offering both hatchback and sedan styles and plenty of room inside despite its petite size. But with the new generation of Focus, Ford has made this popular car even more family-friendly by adding extra room to the backseat.

The Ford Focus backseat space will increase significantly with the new model. Backseat passengers can enjoy  an additional 1.97 inches of knee room and 2.4 inches of shoulder room.

But Ford didn’t just want more seat space. The company also wanted the Focus to feel more open and comfortable, which is why the new Focus will have wider side windows with that stretch further backward. It will also offer an available panoramic sunroof, to open up the cabin to the outdoors.

The improved rear space in the Focus is only one of the changes introduced in the new generation of Focus. The brand has restyled the 2019 Focus with a sleeker, more fluid exterior, as well as modern LED lighting and a new grille.

The manufacturer has also revamped the interior of the Focus. The cabin boasts a revised infotainment system and cleaner, more streamlined dashboard thanks to a new screen design. Next-generation Ford SYNC with smartphone connectivity completes the package, making the Focus modern, comfortable, and stylish both inside and out.

Pothole Detection Technology Coming to New Ford Focus

Pothole Detection Technology | Tropical Ford Blog | Orlando, FL

Potholes can feel like the unavoidable bane of any driver’s existence — they’re easy to find and hard to miss. But a new pothole detection technology might change that. The new Ford Focus will spotlight this new technology that will minimize the damage that a pothole might cause.

The new Ford Focus will feature a new advanced suspension technology that will adjust to potholes when the system detects them. This technology comes with the Ford Focus’ Continuously Controlled Damping system. The pothole detection technology was tested on the ultimate pothole challenge — a test road at Ford’s Belgium test facility which is built with extreme potholes and other hazards on the road. If the pothole technology succeeded on this challenge, it’s sure to make a big difference when used on the average road.

The 2019 Ford Focus compact car should go on sale sometime in 2019. The brand will likely offer it as both a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. In addition to its advanced pothole detection technology, it boasts an attractive new design, a more spacious interior, and additional driver-assist technologies.
