Today, let’s talk about the Ford Focus ST. It is the sportier version of the popular family hatchback with just about the right amount of comfort and performance to keep you happy behind the wheel. It even comes in a bright Lamborghini yellow shade which does get your heart racing even before you get into it. It may not be the most powerful of the Focus’ since, that crown goes to the awesome Focus RS, but it still ain’t a slouch.
The 2015 Ford Focus ST featured in the following video makes use of a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine that puts out 245 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, all of which is transferred to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. 60 mph comes up in just about 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 154 mph. That’s perfectly fine if you also want to transport a wife and children along. I see the hot hatchback as a car for a young family who have just had to sell their sports coupe. I surely won’t mind owning one. Still, I just can’t take my eyes off the new Focus RS.
