The VW Golf was the best hatchback, Donald Trump was still hosting the American version of The Apprentice and "fake news" was merely a form of poor journalism.
At the reveal of the new Focus in London on Tuesday, Ford also confirmed more versions are in the pipeline including a petrol-electric model and a super-sports performance variant due for release next year. After that you need a subscription to Vodafone.
The entry-level trim is Style, and with a 1-litre, 84bhp engine it will cost from £17,930, £2,300 less than the outgoing model. The all-new C2 platform accords the fourth generation Focus with 20 percent more torsional rigidity, while stiffness of individual suspension attachment points is increased by up to 50 per cent, reducing flex for better body control.
Ford describes the interior of the redesigned Focus as more "refined and upscale". The interior itself, often maligned for looking dated and being too complicated, has been made cleaner and features far fewer buttons.

Ford has introduced its redesigned global Focus, a more spacious, tech-filled and connected compact auto that the Dearborn automaker will tweak to fit markets across the world. It's not on sale yet as it is only expected to hit showrooms in Europe and China later this year, followed by the rest of the world in 2019. Ford claims the new model is the most accomplished and technically-competent Focus ever. There's also adaptive cruise control with speed sign recognition, wireless phone charging, and the latest SYNC 3 infotainment with FordPass Connect and B&O PLAY audio available. It also spawns three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Eco. In particular, according to the manufacturer, the new Ford Focus became 88 kg lighter.
There will be five engine options available: a 1.0-litre petrol unit in three power outputs of 85hp, 100hp and 125hp, all driven through a six-speed manual gearbox; and a new 1.5-litre diesel engine available in 95hp or 120hp versions.
Ford claims fuel efficiency and Carbon dioxide emissions improvements of 10% across the range, thanks to a combination of improvements from engines, gearboxes and aerodynamics.
The Focus line-up includes five-door hatch and estate bodystyles. It also weighs 88kg less, like-for-like, which should also help improve overall efficiency.
Blake stunned in 100m final
World champion Tom Walsh won the shot put gold for New Zealand at 21.41m after a setting a games record 22.45m in qualifying. Among Indian athletes, Mohammed Anas won the third semifinal of men's 400m in a relatively good time of 45.44s.
The new Focus will also enhance its driving dynamics with the launch of Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) technology, which enables independent front and rear suspension systems; new drive models an isolated rear subframe for greater refinement, and Ford-patented spring technology.
The estate boot space has been created to comfortable fit a dog crate, so Fido should be happy about the new Focus. Production of the third-generation Focus ceased on the 6th of April, 2018.
The front end of the vehicle also features a slightly different design to the rest of the range, in the same way that the Vignale and ST-Line models also feature bumpers that subtly communicate the cars' differing uses.
