Simply put, Ford’s Focus RS is a street-legal race car.

Not many of those out there, and most require you to sell your house to make a down payment on said speedster.

So here, for $36,995, Ford will put a scorching hot rod, drifter, rally car in your driveway, enticing neighbors, especially young males, to drool. It’ll also increase your heart rate, something on the order of being a real race driver.

The backstory on the German-made RS is that it, or similar Foci, have been sold in Europe for years and U.S. lead-footers have been itching for it, begging for it, praying for it to hit our shores. Now it has. I don’t know how many will be sold, but the Subaru Impreza WRX now has serious competition. In fact, folks considering a Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger may want to consider saving some dough and going this route for serious performance.

What does that performance consist of?

In a nutshell this fast Focus, complete with a big deal rear spoiler, pumps 350 horsepower out of its tiny 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine along with a matching torque rating. It’s said to do 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds. By comparison, a Mustang GT can do it in 4.4 seconds. That’s pretty close, and this handles better.

The Focus RS has the advantage of all-wheel-drive to keep its wheels churning on the blacktop, boosting its acceleration and grip. The low-profile 19-inch performance tires help too. I pushed this pretty hard on some highway turns and slalom-like back roads, and the Focus feels glued to the road. Grip is superb.

Focus also comes with an aggressive 6-speed manual transmission. That’s how you know this is a serious racer. Fewer than 30% of cars are offered with manual transmissions, and less than 3% of all cars sold in the United States are so equipped.

The Focus engine has an intercooled turbo, which is the source of its awe-inspiring power. In first gear you can snap your head back, and you can run away from anything at a stoplight. Shifting is easy, but with fairly long... [Read More]

ABDC 2017: The search for Australia’s Best Driver’s Car

May 26, 2017 - 4:04 AM - by Paolo
May 24, 2017



From zero to hero, with plenty in between, today we kick off the countdown to the winner of Australia’s Best Driver’s Car 2017

Australia’s Best Driver’s Car takes a unique approach to determining the country’s top driver’s car. While there are other sports and performance car shootouts elsewhere, motoring.com.au stands alone in focussing on the purest elements of driving, and dismissing, for the most part, all that is secondary.

It’s for this reason we test such a variety of cars.

Our price cap serves only to keep ABDC relatable. In no other test will you find cars ranging in price from $40,000 to $250,000 compared on their own merits side-by-side. We strive to single-out those cars that have impressed our critics most during the year, and bring only these to our premier comparison. In that way, the cars assembled here are already winners.

In the lead up to ABDC, our senior road testers debated the pros and cons of every sports and performance car released in the past 12 months, carving and culling the list until a field of 12 competitors arose.

As we’ve stated previously, the field will ultimately be determined by availability, but this year the field of hot hatches, cool coupes, sizzling sedans and one red-hot roadster was essentially as picked. Only one or two low volume vehicles were not made available to us.

There are no special imports here, no kit cars, and no tuning shop specials. These are production cars available from the showroom floor, right now.

So who’s fronting the start in Australia’s Best Driver’s car 2017?

Starting at the affordable end of the spectrum we find the Abarth 124 Spider ($41,990), Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years ($46,990), Ford Focus RS ($50,990) and BMW M140i Performance Package ($64,990). It’s anyone’s game here; remember though, price is not factored into the equation. ABDC is all about how cars make us feel behind the wheel.

In the middle reaches it’s a close game. German rivals Audi S5 quattro ($105,800) and Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupe 4MATIC ($105,615) go... [Read More]
