Ford Focus: new vs old compared
An all-new Ford Focus has just been revealed, but is it a significant step forward from the outgoing model?...
Ford Focus new vs old – dashboard and driving position
As with the outgoing car, all new Focus models get height adjustment on the driver’s seat as standard, plus a steering wheel that adjusts for reach and rake, so it shouldn't be too hard to find a comfortable driving position.
The interior features more soft-touch materials than before, though, to give is a swankier feel, and for the first time in a Focus, you can have a head-up display that projects your speed and sat-nav instructions onto the windscreen so you don't have to take your eyes off the road.
Ford Focus new vs old – infotainment
Most versions of the current Focus feature a touchscreen infotainment system, but this is set a long way back in the dashboard, whereas the new car's screen is much easier to reach.
