FORD Focus CC   2008 2011
2008 2011

Ford introduced the facelifted version of the Focus CC, a coupe-cabriolet version of its compact-segment contender.
While the Escort Convertible was highly appreciated on the market and sold in big numbers, the Focus CC didn’t get the same success. But Ford didn’t seem to be bothered by that. It was unclear if it tried to profit from it or gain a better image on the market. In 2008, along with the rest of the Focus lineup, the blue-oval brand decided to refresh the CC version as well.

Like most of the compact segment’s coupe-cabriolet vehicles, the Focus CC featured some panels shared with the hatchback version while some others were completely new. Its headlights and front fascia were adapted to the shape of the regular Focus. The rest of the panels remained the same, including the CC-specific taillights and rear panels. It was too expensive to adapt to those.

Inside, the designers didn’t sweat too much to update the cabin. The dashboard was carried over straight from the standard version, but with some extra metallic trims to make it look more upmarket. All the controls and buttons were easy to reach, and it was a simple yet logical layout.

Like most of its other versions, Ford offered an entry-level with a small engine, while the sales department’s credits went to the diesel versions. The gasoline units were not that praised since the convertible version was quite heavy. To make-it corner faster, Ford increased the vehicle’s stiffness.

Ford decided to enter into the coupe-cabriolet market with the Focus CC in 2006 and charged against Volkswagen EOS, Peugeot 307 CC, and Megane CC.
But it didn’t last.

While Peugeot was already known for its Coupe-cabriolet system, since they were first on the market to offer it, Ford had little experience with that. But the blue-oval brand tried to revive the former glory of the Escort Cabriolet into the new era of compact convertibles. Unfortunately, time was not their best ally.

Ford chose Pininfarina to design and build the coupe-convertible version, and the result was beyond expectations. The Italian coachbuilder made the CC the longest version of the Focus range. While at the front, it looked very similar to the rest of the range; everything changed from the A-pillars. The doors were frameless, and there was no B-pillar or safety arch, thanks to the reinforced windscreen pillars. Its power-folding mechanism removed the top and the rear windscreen and stored them behind the rear seats. To make the car good enough for long travels, Pininfarina designed a longer rear overhang, thus resulting in a longer car.

Inside, the front seats and the dashboard were similar to those installed in the three-door version. On the other hand, there was very limited legroom in the rear since the bench had to be moved forward to make room for the folding top and rear window. But that was a common problem for the compact segment convertibles. Its real problem was 2007 when the world financial crisis struck.

Under the hood, Ford offered a choice of three engines, with the turbo-diesel version being the most thought-after. The car was quite heavy, and the oil-burner provided more torque than the gasoline units.
