The Ghia trim level was available on the Ford Focus from its inception in 1998 up until the 2007 facelift. The use of the Ghia badge was phased out on all Ford models in Europe during 2008.
First Generation Ford Focus Ghia (1998 - 2005)
The first Ford Focus actually took its name from a Ghia concept car shown in 1991. Introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1998, the Mk1 Focus developed Ford''s "New Edge" styling that had been seen in the Ka and Cougar. It was a pretty unique looking car that took the European small family car market by storm; the Mk1 Ford Focus won the 1999 European Car of the Year Award.
The Focus Ghia was available as a five-door hatchback, four-door saloon (only available in Ghia trim level) and a five-door estate. In terms of engines, buyers could choose between a 1.6l, 1.8l or 2.0l petrol, or 1.8 turbodiesel. The 1.6-litre was the Zetec-S/SE found in the Fiesta and Puma, and the 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrols were Zetec-R units from the Mondeo. The Endura TDDI turbodiesel engine was replaced by a Duratorq TDCI in 2002.
The features of the Focus Ghia included electric heated mirrors, folding centre armrest, a leather gear knob with bright trim, woodgrain effect door trim, front door scuff plates, air conditioning, audio remote, electric driver''s seat and lumbar support.
The first Ford Focus received four out of five stars for occupant safety and two out of four stars for pedestrian safety in Euro NCAP tests.
The 2001 facelift model (Mk1.5) introduced the TDCi engine and revised the headlamps, bumpers, grilles and fog lights on the outside, and updated the centre console, centre dash, and seat trims on the inside.
Second generation Ford Focus Ghia (2004 - 2011)
The Mk2 Ford Focus was launched at the Paris Motor Show in September 2004. It was larger and heavier than its predecessor and used Ford''s C1 platform that''s shared with the Volvo S40, V50, C70, Mazda3 and Focus C-Max. The larger size meant increased interior and boot space while the Mk2 featured a lot more tech, including a KeyFree system, adaptive front lighting, Bluetooth hands-free and voice control for the audio, telephone and climate control systems.
The Ghia spec was no longer the top of the range, although it was the only model to have cruise control as standard. The Mk2 Ford Focus now offered the Titanium trim level that had more modern styling, such as sports seats and privacy glass, as Ford moved away from the wood finish and velour seats previously associated with the top trim level.
The second generation Ford Focus Ghia came with the new Durashift transmission, the upgraded Duratec petrol engine, new Ti-VCT and Duratec HE engines or the diesel Duratorq engine options.
The Mk2 Focus was class-leading in terms of safety. It was awarded five stars for adult protection, four out of five for child protection and two out of four for pedestrian protection in its Euro NCAP tests, beating rivals the Vauxhall Astra and Volkswagen Golf.
In 2007, the facelift model marked the end of the Ghia trim on the Focus.
