Ford Focus Active soft-roader is sole Focus variant for North America

Ford last month took the covers off a redesigned Focus in hatchback (regular and soft-roader), sedan and wagon body styles.

The car represents the fourth generation of the popular compact and is due in most markets later this year.

Unfortunately, Ford last week confirmed that North America will receive just one variant of the car: the Focus Active soft-roader. It’s due here in the fall of 2019 and will be sourced from a plant in China. Yep, no more sporty ST or RS variants.
