Our spy photographers snapped a few pics with the 2014 Focus and its high-performance sibling, the ST version.

The facelifted Focus lineup will likely go on sale towards the end of next year, but before that we should see a proper unveiling at Geneva Motor Show in March or a few months later in Paris. The Blue Oval company will implement a minor nip and tuck as the only changes will be at the front fascia where there will be a larger and wider grille, as seen on the facelifted Fiesta.

Our sources have informed us Ford plans on introducing several new EcoBoost engine derivatives and there could also be some small tweaks of the taillights which haven’t been fitted on these two prototypes. The black car seen in these attached photos is a regular Focus spotted on public roads, while the silver car is the ST derivative stretching its legs on the Nürburgring.
