Geneva - estate model revealed for 2011 Ford Focus

The next-generation Ford Focus estate has made its global debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show alongside the sporty Focus five-door, appearing for the first time in Europe.

More than 1.3 million Ford Focus models have been sold in the UK since its launch in 1998.

The five-door is the most popular model (83%) and the estate version currently makes up around 10% of all sales. Diesel engines account for 36% of sales and the most popular petrol choice is the 1.6-litre 100PS Duratec.

Focus drivers in the UK prefer highly specified vehicles with 55% of them opting for Zetec trim and 16% choosing top-of-the-range Titanium.

The new Ford Focus range will feature low carbon diesel engines from Ford Dagenham and frugal petrol engines from Bridgend among its powertrains.

The Focus estate will initially launch in Europe.
