The Mk 2 Ford Focus was launched inside of the Paris Motor Show on September 23, 2004 as being a three and five-door hatchback and an estate, as well as the new car was previewed, in 4-door saloon form, as the 'Focus Concept' put together by Ford Europe inside of the Beijing Motor Show in mid-2004.
The Mk 2, codenamed C307, uses the Ford C1 platform in fact it is shared aided by the Volvo S40, V50 and C70, Mazda3 while keeping focused C-MAX. Ford calls this platform sharing programme "Global Shared Technologies".
Most of the suspension design, which contributed much path of the Mk 1's success, happen to be carried over largely unchanged by reviewing the predecessor which, together with a 10% stiffer bodyshell, comes with a better ride as outlined by Ford but lacked found on the precise and poised handling belonging to the Mk1. The same identical body styles mainly because the Mk 1 Focus were offered, though the saloon still did not appear until mid-2005.
The Focus Mk 2 is much larger and considerably heavier than its predecessor who has a 25 mm (1 in) increasing amount of wheelbase, 168 mm (6.6 in) longer, 8 mm (0.3 in) taller and 22 mm (0.8 in) wider.

The interior and dashboard follows on coming from a Mk 2 Mondeo and it is constructed from higher quality plastics than before.
The Focus Mk 2 have also been a built in Silverton, Republic Of South Africa for export to Australia and New Zealand. However shortly after launch, Ford New Zealand surrendered its supply in order to reach Australia's high demand, and after this receives vehicles because of the German factory in Saarlouis. In 2006 the Mk 2 made its debut included in the Americas because of its launch found on the Mexican market as the 4-door saloon or even the sporty 3-door in ST trim. The Mk 2 Focus will now be available alongside base versions associated with the Mk I model in a number of other markets worldwide as well as Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Venezuela. In Argentina, the Mk 1 Focus was built alongside the Mk 2 belonging to the Pacheco Factory until TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT, when the Mk 2 finally replaced it.

Sales associated with the coupe model are almost always only a small fraction of the previous 3-door hatchback, charge card companies sales of the Focus saloon and compact cars as a rule.
The fresh new car has gained the best ever EuroNCAP ratings because of its class (5 stars for adult protection, 4 of 5 for child protection as well as of 5 for pedestrian protection), beating such contenders as the Vauxhall/Opel Astra and Volkswagen Golf, including full (16/16) marks to get a front impact test.
The engine line up to get the Mk 2 really is a mixture of old and new. The 1.4 L and 1.6 L all aluminium Zetec-SE (codenamed Sigma) engines originating from a previous generation Focus were heavily upgraded and renamed Duratec, by adding 1.6 L Duratec Ti-VCT engine with variable valve timing. For the South African market, the 1.6L BZ inline-four engine was used within his or her Mk2. For a particular 2009 facelift this has been replaced due to the 1.8 Duratec.
The 1.8 L and a pair of.0 L Zetec petrol engines belonging to the original were replaced when using the Duratec HE.
The Duratorq Diesel engine in 'Tiger' Duratorq 1.6 L 90 hp (67 kW) and 110 hp (82 kW) editions, 'Lynx' Duratorq 1.8L 115 hp (86 kW) diesel carried over because of the previous model and therefore the diesel in 2.0 L form rounds off the range in standard Focus guise (it's much different unit in direction of 'Puma' diesel contained in the Mondeo).
