At 168.5 inches long overall, Focus hatchbacks are nearly 7 inches shorter than the Honda Civic sedan and almost a foot shorter than the Toyota Corolla. Focus sedans measure 175.2 inches from stem to stern, and all Focus models have a 103-inch wheelbase.

The 2005 front end echoes the look of Ford’s new Five Hundred sedan. New headlamps have reshaped clear lenses, and the larger grille has a new diamond pattern. Round fog lamps are installed, and the redesigned fascia has a wider, lower air intake. Sedans feature fresh taillamps. Steel wheels now hold 15-inch tires on S models, while the SE and SES can have 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels and the ST gets unique 16-inch alloy wheels. The front brakes have been enlarged, and the ST has all-disc braking.
