The next-generation Ford Focus sedan has been spied doing a spot of hot weather testing in southern Europe.
We can see, despite a plethora of false panels and head-to-toe camouflage, Ford has ditched the six side window treatment used in all generations of the Focus sedan thus far.
Like the five-door hatch, which was last spotted in February, the new sedan also has a prominent shoulder line gracing its side.
Under the bonnet, the Focus will be powered by a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, including the much awarded 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol motor.
A plug-in hybrid variant and a new electric model are expected to surface a year or two into the new generation's life.
An earlier set of spy photos revealed much of the new Focus' interior, which includes a cleaner design similar to the one used on the latest generation Fiesta.
A free-standing pod for the Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system will be present, at least, on mid- to high-spec models. Expect to see a customisable digital instrument display, and the latest safety technology.
It's not clear if Australia will receive the next-generation Focus sedan or hatch.
