The Focus is a front-wheel drive economy car introduced by Ford in 2000. It is a "world car" sold with the same basic body type across the globe, with only minor changes made to its handling and steering in some markets outside the United States. It was the first vehicle produced under Ford's newly-developed global development strategy, which sought to streamline production and reduce costs. The Focus quickly became one of Ford's best-selling cars worldwide.
The Focus retained its original body and design until 2008, when Ford revamped it and introduced the second generation of the vehicle. In 2002 the Focus was available as a 3-door hatchback, a 4-door sedan, a 5-door hatchback or a wagon.
