Ford Focus ST

The new ST combines strong performance, exceptional handling, eye-catching style and everyday refinement. Powered by a 2.0 Ford EcoBoost engine mated to a specially revised 6-speed manual transmission, the Focus ST offers an uncompromising mix of performance and efficiency.

More powerful. And more efficient

The new Ford Focus ST is powered by an advanced 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine, which delivers 184kW and 360 Nm of torque. As well as delivering an impressive 10% increase in power than the previous engine, it reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20%. A retuned exhaust note provides a constant, rewarding reminder of those significant benefits.

Technology that keeps you in control

The extra power at your command is always under your control. An innovative new, ultra-quick, ultra-responsive Sport Steering System enables you to take corners and negotiate traffic circles, without having to re-position your hands. You can accelerate through corners with maximum grip, thanks to enhanced Torque Vectoring Control, which constantly re-balances power and braking between the two front wheels. While the enhanced performance braking system reduces stopping distances and responds instantly to the lightest touches of the pedal.

“The new ST retains the old car's magical pliancy, the ability to deal even the nastiest ruts and ridges without resorting to clang nor squidge. Some hot hatches are set so hard that you'd need a bootful of replacement spines to tackle a mammoth road trip, but the ST feels far more... elastic: organic rather than brittle. We feared Ford might have lost its chassis magic with the uncharacteristically inert MkIII Focus, but we're delighted to report it's still there. This is a car touched by genius.”

Improved aerodynamics and enhanced interior

Developed and tested in Ford’s own advanced wind tunnel, the Focus ST’s streamlined styling delivers improved aerodynamics for less drag, which improves performance, handling and fuel economy. The cockpit now incorporates a sports steering wheel, distinctive trim and advanced Recaro seats. And because this is a Focus, there’s plenty of storage space.
