Ford Australia has announced the Focus hatchback range will be reduced to just three variants for the 2021 model year.
The Focus Trend and Titanium variants, and the ST-Line wagon have been given the boot leaving the ST-Line hatch, the high-riding Focus Active and the recently launched Focus ST performance model.
Pricing has increased for the surviving models with the ST-Line and Active both priced from $30,990 plus on-road costs.
The Focus ST-Line hatch now gets independent rear suspension in place of the torsion beam arrangement on the current model.
Further changes include front parking sensors, new LED headlights and revised daytime running lights with a tweaked lighting signature.
The FordPass Connect system is also standard which allows owners to remotely lock and unlock the car via a smartphone app.
Race Red joins the palette as a standard colour, while Fantastic Red joins the options list.
The Focus ST-Line and Active are powered by a 134kW/240Nm 1.5-litre turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine matched with an eight-speed automatic and front-wheel drive.
The 2021 Focus line-up is scheduled to go on sale in December.
