The third generation Ford Focus RS has been unleashed! Powered by a 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine pushing 316bhp and for the first time ever it gets all-wheel drive!
Rumoured to go on sale early next year with a price tag of sub 30k, the latest model to wear the fabled RS badge looks to be a strong contender in the hot hatch division. You can be sure that the all new Focus RS has a strong bloodline, following a long line of affordable yet high performance Fords which started back in 1968 with 15M RS. Ford Also bought us the legendary Escort RS1600, Sierra RS Cosworth, Escort Cosworth and the 2 previous Focus RS models.
The formidable Focus RS looks to be stiff competition too, challenging the likes of Mercedes with the A45 and Audi and the RS3 on both price and performance. Although the RS has 44bhp less than the RS3, it does benefit from being lighter. There is also potential to up the power in the future with a limited model.
