The Ford Focus Mk1 was introduced to universal acclaim in October 1998. It was facelifted in October 2001, which we cover here. Models were 3- and 5-door hatchbacks, a 4-door saloon, and 5-door estate. The four-cylinder petrol engines are available in 1.4-, 1.6-, 1.8- and 2.0-litre capacities. The Focus was available with a 1.8-litre Duratorq common-rail diesel engine. The transversely mounted engine drives the front wheels through either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic (available on 1.6-litre petrol engines only). The steering was power-assisted, and all models had passive rear wheel steering geometry built into the rear suspension.
