Paris will be the first time the complete line-up of production-ready new Focus body styles will be displayed together, which is relatively interesting.
More interesting is the fact that the Focus ST version is getting a distinctly harder-edge (well, all things are relative), with a power upgrade from the current model's 220-something hp, and styling that's definitely more attention-grabbing - apparently as a result of customer criticism of the current model's low-key approach.
Power will come from a version of the new 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine, and in case you were wondering the show car pictured here is finished in what will be a new addition to the colour range called 'Tangerine Scream'. No... say it LOUDER!!!
