Higher, faster, wider - that's why the Ford Focus RS is not the first. However, the self-proclaimed sports enthusiast must now stand up to the seriousness of the dynamic of life in the Supertest.

In my chest beat quasi two hearts - one is enthusiastic about fast lap times, the other is fun euphoria. Porsche has recently shown that the topics "emotional fun" and "perfectionistic round-the-clock performance" are no longer necessarily associated with the 911 R.

A bit of rally flare with the Ford Focus RS

The extreme elf was not advertised with a round trip on the north loop . Why, with him the focus is on grandiose pass and country road trips, but not the last tenth of a second on the ring. There are others. And what is the heart of the new Ford Focus RS ?

What was this vehicle already celebrated? Directly after the presentation came a hype around the RS, from which the compact models à la VW Golf R , Audi RS 3 or Mercedes-AMG A45 can only dream. And even in our editorial team, the new power focus from Helmstedt's colleagues, after an excursion through the Rallycross track in Hockenheim, was even glowing heart-pounding on the muddy door.

The expectation was with me then correspondingly high. Even with the optics it is somehow warm around the heart, even if the RS predecessor model visually even more authentic came. But the newcomer, too, with his beefy aprons, the exposed mudguards and the roof edge spoiler, somehow reminds us of legendary rally times, when WRC heroes like Colin McRae and Marcus Grönholm beat the Focus RS WRC to victory.
A bit of the flair of this successful rally history was also transferred to the interior of the new Ford Focus RS. The three analogue auxiliaries on the dashboard for charging pressure, oil temperature and oil pressure are a relic of past racing times, which still give every car fan a delightful smile. The Recaro-shaped skirting boards offer very good lateral support, but they... [Read More]

Slated to go on sale no later than the latter half of 2018, the fourth-generation Ford Focus is an important nameplate for the Blue Oval. And when you realize the Mk3 Focus made its debut in 2010, you know the time is high for Ford to pull something completely all-new out of the hat.

Spied cold-weather testing, the 2018 Ford Focus pictured in these photographs is a prototype clothed in production sheet metal. The makeshift lighting system and extensive camouflage aren’t helping with identifying the visual changes brought by exterior design team.

Just like the Mk3 Focus facelift, this prototype features a generous front overhang and a short rear overhang, whereas the profile and proportions are pretty much neck and neck. On closer inspection, though, it appears that the Mk4 Focus grew longer and wider, front and rear track included. The latter is a clear indicator Ford has not forgotten what its compact hatchback is all about: great handling.

The bigger dimensions also benefit interior room. And speaking of the cabin, the shutterbugs captured a single pic of the Mk4 Focus’ dashboard. The small screen is, without a shadow of a doubt, an indicator that this is the basic infotainment system, but then you notice the layout of the... [Read More]

Ford Focus RS: 2017 Performance Car of the Year #3

2016 Ford Focus RS

At Performance Car of the Year there's often a Surprise Packet that shows up the more fancied rivals. You're looking at it.

Stop for a moment and consider that Ford's absolutely brilliant new Focus RS has beaten not just the adored BMW M2 — the car heralded as the M brand's return to form — but the rear-drive Lamborghini Huracan that some judges needed to be forcibly removed from; and the scintillating Audi R8 V10 Plus.

In fact, with not a single vanilla contestant at PCOTY 2017, pipping any of the cars you've so far read about would be remarkable, let alone nine of them. A $51K hot hatch.

Clearly, though, not any old hot hatch. With its turbocharged 2.3-litre inline four (shared with the Mustang EcoBoost) belting out a whopping 257kW and 440Nm (470Nm on overboost), channelled through an innovative 'Twinster' all-wheel drive system able to shunt 100 per cent of the rearward thrust to either rear wheel for true torque vectoring, Ford has created an impressive performance car — on paper.

But in truth it's even better to drive, a car clearly engineered by people who not only love driving and understand what makes a proper performance car, but how to innovate to move the game forward.

And in that sense the Focus RS is an annoying car for any manufacturer that makes a hot hatch because it is category redefining. Previously, a hot hatch would have one of two handling configurations: security and stability, pushing into understeer at the limit — like a VW Golf R or Mercedes-AMG A45 — or I-wish-to-kill-you startling oversteer, like a Renault Sport Megane or Ford Focus ST. Provided your driving style is versatile enough to tap into each, the Focus RS can provide both these handling personalities — with a bonus party trick.

Not only can you drive the Focus RS 'flat' up a twisty road, leaning into the satisfying grip of those 235/35R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres; and not only can you drive the car more 'on the nose', inviting the rear... [Read More]
