If you like the Ford Focus but want even more style and potency, the ST could be just what you are looking for. A sharper design and more powerful engines make this hot hatch a car to be reckoned with, and it is available in three grades: ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3.
The sporty Focus ST includes a number of exclusive features, such as 18-inch five-spoke Y-design alloy wheels. The vehicle’s rear fascia is adorned with a bespoke spoiler, a diffuser and a central dual exhaust pipe.
A number of useful features include power-operated and heated door mirrors, and Estate models are crowned with black-finish roof rails.
A five-person cabin is fitted with Recaro front sports seats and a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshift knob. The former is adorned with a red ST insignia, and both are highlighted with red stitching. With the ST, there is no need to insert your key to start the engine; simply press Ford’s Power Starter button. Other standard features include an adjustable driver’s seat, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, electric front windows and air-conditioning. The Focus ST possesses a minimum-capacity 316-litre boot.
Three 2.0-litre engine options are available, including a high-performance unit which produces 247bhp, 345Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 6.7 seconds. For optimal fuel-efficiency, choose a 182bhp diesel engine. Producing 400Nm of torque, this returns as much as 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 110g/km. Each option is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The vehicle’s infotainment system includes a DAB radio, a CD player, Ford SYNC 1 (with Voice Control and Emergency Assistance), Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX-In ports and MyKey technology.
As safe as it is quick, the Focus ST has been awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP. Features include Electronic Stability Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, multiple airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters and seatbelt reminders.
