Ford Focus ST Is A Hot Hatch For All [Paris 2010]


While many North American enthusiasts lust after European hot hatches, we were privy to one somewhat ignored car in years past. The Ford Focus ST170, better known as the Ford Focus SVT, was sold here earlier in the decade, and it's back after an prolonged absence.

The previous generation Focus ST, not sold in North America, used a 2.5L 5-cylinder turbo, but the new car downsizes the cylinder count with a 2.0L Ecoboost 4-banger, making 247 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission with a special torque vectoring system helps the front-drive hot hatch behave properly on the road.

Our favorite part? Bucket seats and big brakes courtesy of well known specialist ATE. Not only will this car go, but it will stop and hold you in your seat properly.
