Ford Finds Its Global Focus

Design and Interior


The interior requirements also influenced the car's design. The cabin was designed around the customer ? from the 5 th percentile female to the 95 th percentile male (both of whom will be 1/2 inch taller by 2000). Also, there are many older buyers in this segment who need more room to be comfortable. To accommodate these human trends, Focus interior designers used an advanced RAMSIS 3D modeling program to optimize the cabin. It has 54 inches of shoulder room, 1.6 inches more space in the front and 3.1 inches more in the rear, compared with Escort.
