Among its many innovations, Ford Motor Company indeed had a better idea when it came to compact cars. Rather than introduce one version for the Americas, another for Europe, and still others for Africa, Asia, and Australia, the company decided to make the same car work in all of those markets.
Thus, the Ford Focus is a “world car”.
Introduced into the North American marketplace in 1999 as a 2000 model, Focus has been Ford’s best selling small car in America to date. In fact, with its combination of sporty styling, crisp handling and a broad variety of body configurations, Focus has found considerable success for Ford all around the world.
There have been three generations of the car offered since its launch.
