The new four-seater Ford Focus Coupé-Cabriolet debuted at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show in March. The new model joins the three-door, four-door, five-door, wagon and ST models, and in 2009 it will be joined by the all-new Ford Focus RS high performance model. The newly designed Focus Coupé-Cabriolet is a true four-seater that combines a high emotional appeal with the means for everyday use: With the roof closed, new Focus Coupé-Cabriolet offers a best-in-class luggage capacity.
“As with the generic new Ford Focus, with the Focus Coupé-Cabriolet we also felt the importance of aligning this vehicle with our ‘kinetic design’ language as soon as possible,” said Stephen Odell, Vice President Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford of Europe.
The entire front end design of the new Ford Focus was fully adopted for the Coupé-Cabriolet: The new three-dimensional hood design flows into the dual-trapezoidal-grille design, with both the upper and lower grille being equipped with chrome surrounding. The front bumper, lights and front fender designs clearly reflect the latest Focus styling, but are also tailored to perfectly fit the side view of the Coupé-Cabriolet.
“The new Ford Focus Coupé-Cabriolet is a special blend: We felt that the new front end design will perfectly complement the profile and rear end design. The result is a mix of latest level Focus dynamics and the Coupé-Cabriolet design,” said Chris Bird, Design Director at Ford of Europe.
If the answer is yes would they be launching it here in the US or only in Europe because it dosent mention that.
