Not quite a month ago, one of our spy photographers captured a brightly wrapped 2019 Ford Focus prototype running around. That was a hatchback, though. Now there seems to be at least one sedan variant in with the same color scheme out in the world testing. Shown above, it unsurprisingly shares quite a bit with the hatchback, including that hashtag.
There aren’t many fresh revelations on the front of the 2019 Ford Focus sedan. We do see more of the fog lights, which stretch upward and mirror the angles of the grille. This car also has different headlights than the previously spied one. It uses a pair of projector lenses that take up most of the middle, while the hatchback we spied seemed to have a few reflector-style lamps, or possibly LED lights with an LED element running horizontally between them. Both versions will likely be available, but on different trim levels.
Obviously the biggest news here is what we can expect from the traditionally more popular sedan body style. With it comes rear windows that aren’t as tall so as to match the roofline. Despite that, the glass area still looks quite tall, almost awkwardly so. This is likely due in part to the dip in the window sill in the middle. Still it should afford very good visibility and an airy interior. The sedan looks to be a bit longer than hatchback, which really accentuates the new, muscular fender creases. The trunk lid also tapers to a nice little lip spoiler enhancing the lengthier look. The taillights and lower fascia look just like the hatchback’s.
With what appears to be a production-ready body, minimal camouflage, and even a hashtag, we likely won’t have to wait long to see the production 2019 Focus sedan and hatchback. We expect to see it by the end of the auto show season, possibly as soon as the Detroit Auto Show.
