The new four-seater Ford Focus Coupé-Cabriolet will have its public debut at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Focus Coupé-Cabriolet with its retractable hardtop will once again be manufactured at the Bairo plant of Pininfarina, Ford’s partner in designing, engineering and building the Focus Coupé-Cabriolet.

"As with the generic new Ford Focus, with the Focus Coupé-Cabriolet we also felt the importance of aligning this charismatic vehicle with our ‘kinetic design’ language as soon as possible," said Stephen Odell, Vice President Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford of Europe.

Design

"The new Ford Focus Coupé-Cabriolet is a special blend: We felt that the new very ‘kinetic’ front end design will perfectly complement the timelessly-elegant, Italian flavoured profile and rear end design.

"The result is a perfect mix of latest level Focus dynamics and the special Coupé-Cabriolet design execution that we had already developed jointly with Pininfarina," said Chris Bird, Design Director at Ford of Europe.

Ford Focus Coupe CabrioletThe entire front end design of the new Ford Focus was fully adopted for the Coupé-Cabriolet: The new three-dimensional hood design flows harmoniously into the iconic dual-trapezoidal-grille design, with both the upper and lower grille being equipped with a chrome surrounding.

The front bumper, lights and front fender designs clearly reflect the latest dynamic Focus styling, but are also tailored to fit the side view of the car.

The interior styling of the new Focus Coupé-Cabriolet also received a lifting with bold design elements. The new instrument cluster features a ‘binocular’ style with instruments illuminated in red. The new center console is shared with all the resyled Focus models.

  • button for keyless start, plus keyless entry system
  • New optional Tyre Deflation Detection System (DDS)
  • New audio connectivity module for external devices and new levels of Bluetooth ® and USB connectivity, voice control, navigation systems, Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) tuner on Sony radio system
