The stylish front grille is matched by a revised tailgate with integrated diffuser and dual exhaust pipes which leave no question as to its intentions as a performance hot hatch.
Ford have given in to temptation by featuring a starter button in the upgraded interior, which includes a new centre console, 230V power outlet and audio jack.
A set of 18-inch wheels completes the look, while integrated front fog lamps may mimic those found in the as yet unrevealed Orion.
Powering the face-lifted Focus is the 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo engine which remains untouched, still developing a healthy 166kW and 320Nm.
Expect a spirited 0-100km/h time of 6.5 seconds.
