At 168.5 inches long overall, Focus hatchbacks are nearly 7 inches shorter than the Honda Civic sedan and 10 inches shorter than Toyota's Corolla. Focus sedans measure 175.2 inches from stem to stern.

The front end of the Focus echoes the look of Ford's larger Five Hundred sedan. The headlamps have clear lenses, and the grille displays a diamond pattern. Round fog lamps are installed, and the fascia has a wide, low air intake. S and SE models get 15-inch tires, while the SES holds 16-inch alloy wheels. The ST gets unique 16-inch machined-alloy wheels and all-disc brakes.
