The all-new Ford Focus RS, set for release in 2016, is a mega-hatchback with a phenomenal 316bhp via the Ford 4WD System. Aerodynamic excellence and a range of Ford driving technologies also make it impressively efficient, providing a thrilling yet refined driving experience.
A distinctive front bumper and huge air vents envelope the front grille, which features a visible intercooler to leave a genuine racing impression. Subtle blue RS letters feature on the wings of the rear spoiler and a Stealth Grey colour will be available as well as Frozen White.
The five-door Focus RS provides ample interior room that defies the sporty exterior appearance. Recaro sports seats look stunning and offer excellent support, while the reduced dashboard means the essential driving information is easy to find. The Ford SYNC connectivity system is fitted as standard with the eight-inch colour touchscreen easy to use and access.
You may expect a 316bhp engine to be disappointing on fuel economy figures, but with 35mpg expected it will be far from expensive to run. The 2.3-litre EcoBoost reaches its peak at 6,800rpm and CO2 emissions are reduced by 20 percent from the old version. Sawn-off twin exhausts have been developed by Ford to provide a memorable noise that buzzes with excitement.
Ford safety and comfort technology includes the Electronic Stability Programme to give you high levels of traction at all times and the Active City Stop will help you to avoid collisions in urban spaces.
On longer journeys you can use the Adaptive Cruise Control set-up, which
will automatically maintain your speed and keep you a safe distance
from the car in front at all times. Lane Keeping Aid will help you to
stay in a straight line on motorways and dual carriageways and with the
Blind Spot Information System you will have complete visibility around
the whole car.
