Added to the standard equipment list of both hatch and sedan variants, the Ford Focus Ambiente specification update is joined by a new $50 option for Ambiente and Trend lines to gain lumbar support control for drivers and front passengers.

Ford says the addition of cruise control to Ambiente models was in response to customer feedback. The higher-specced Trend, Sport, Titanium and ST models remain unchanged.
