Ford Focus ST to rival GTI
Wheels24's John Oxley is driving the Focus ST today and he will give his impression of this scorcher on Thursday.
This new hot hatch is available in three and five-door guise.
With its turbocharged 166 kW 2.5-litre 5-cylinder Duratec ST engine, the new Focus ST becomes the most powerful Ford Focus road car to date.
The engine is coupled to a slick-operating six-speed manual gearbox and capable of a top speed in excess of 240 km/h, it needs only 6.8 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h.
