MK1 Euro had a face lift for 2001 MK1.5
The 2001 Mk 1 Focus facelift included:
Revised headlamps with integrated indicators and separate main and dipped bulbs
Revised bumpers without indicators, but with the addition of removable bump strips
Revised upper and lower grille and fog lights
Optional Xenon headlights
Optional 6-disc CD changer
Optional Navigation System
Optional Digital Climate Control
Features of certain trim levels changed
Modified centre console with rubber cup holders
Different centre dash colours
New seat trims
Different instrument cluster finishes
Damped and lit glovebox
New colours
Rear power point
TDCi Engine introduced to the range
Versatility Pack Option added
Bluetooth camera facility
A new flexfuel engine was introduced, based on the European Zetec 1.6 L version

When Alan Mulally took over the helm , one of his goals with the One Ford is to get all divisions globally in the same time frame with new and refreshed models. Plus do shorter model runs, and try and get into a 5 year lifespan per design, and keep the design fresh with face lifts every 3 years, of course depending on market conditions and model sales numbers.
