The Asian-market Focus five-door is probably the most aggressive of the new trims, but it's easily our favorite and smacks a little of Ferrari FF in a good way.

The European-market Focus Vignale is the more luxurious choice and stands out in this gorgeous shade of Aubergine.

The Asian-market Focus sedan lacks a little of the wagon's coherent design but still manages to be aggressive and approachable.

Equally at home at an English rock festival or a beach rave in Goa, the European Focus Active starts to bridge the gap aesthetically to the crossovers everyone loves.

The 2019 Focus is going the way of BMW M with an "ST-Line" appearance package. No word on whether a full-fat ST will make its way into the lineup at some point, though.

The Focus Titanium is the most full-featured of the bunch, offered with all mod-cons and a handsome silhouette to boot.
