The Focus is Ford's most significant car range globally. Developed at Ford's global center of excellence for Small and Medium Cars in Germany for sale in over 120 markets worldwide, the next-generation model is the most important Focus yet and is created from Ford Motor Company's new global C segment platform, with up to 80 per cent parts commonality around the world.

This same platform will underpin at least ten vehicles globally and account for two million units of annual production by 2012.

With the complete range of body styles on display in Paris - including the three-door, five-door and wagon - show goers will have an exclusive opportunity to see and experience the car's individual design and class leading technology first hand.
