Put them side by side you can’t really decide which one to drive back home and worship. Now seriously, the Focus ST is combining a high fun-to-drive factor with the versatility of a four-door hatchback.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque is standard, as is a six-speed manual gearbox. With the ST you’ll definitely get decent efficiency and value. There is still the problems a lot of experts point out that are concerning the torque steer and the optional MyFord Touch which by some is far too confusing.

 

People in the US can’t really come through with the fact that the Ford, an all american brand has a totally different following in other parts of the world especially Europe. This love is especially noted among Britons, and this only justifies the fact that the 2015 Ford Focus ST Hatchback is making the debut over there.

The grille is slightly larger, but it retains approximately the same overall shape. Gone, however, are the thin, fang like elements that split it into three sections. While the exterior is packed with a refreshed look, the interior also gets a few updates of its own.The redesigned center console now looks even better and comes with an improved interface climate-control, on top of that you get a hub where you can charge your smart devices.

You’ll have the privilege to control the car with a fine steering wheel covered with leather. Another option you get as an alternative is the heating, and also you get an eight-way adjustable seat. This makes it easy for the drivers of all sizes to get comfy and to find an optimal driving position.

Another thing that is different in the ST2 and ST3 are the front seats that are actually a Recaro edition.
