The Titanium sits at the top of the Focus range, and has a more luxury focus than the ST-Line that sits below it. It is priced from $34,490.

The Titanium has the same 134kW/240Nm three-cylinder turbo petrol engine as the rest of the Ford Focus range. All Focuses have eight-speed torque-converter automatic tranmsissions and Ford rates fuel consumption at 6.4L/100km.

Added specification over the ST-Line includes 18-inch alloys, fully adaptive LED front lighting, leather appointed interior trim, six-way electrically adjustable driver's seat, premium nine-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system and internal LED mood lighting.

As well as the Focus' standard active safety compliment of auto emergency braking (AEB), lane keep assist (LKAS) with lane departure warning (LDW), a 180-degree reversing camera and rear parking sensors, the Titanium gains active cruise control, blind spot monitoring (BSM), rear cross traffic alert (RCTA) and 'evasive steer assist'.

The Focus range was awarded a maximum five ANCAP safety stars as of December 2018.

A head-up display can be optionally specified ($300) as well as Ford's 'Active Park Assist 2' system ($1000) including front parking sensors and auto-parking function.

The Titanium misses out on the ST-Line's independent rear suspension and its European top-spec counterpart's dynamic suspension damping.
