    Ford Focus ST - Official Pictures

    What Happened to the RS? a few years down the line then......

    247bhp turbocharged engine - Is this enough?
    Sports suspension with a clever traction control system featuring torque vectoring will ensure all that punch reaches the road. But with a six-speed manual box, it should return 35mpg combined economy and emit 180g/km of CO2.

    £200 per year tax, pretty good for almost 250bhp.

    Looks like a nice car too, IMO it's the opposite of what happened last gen, VXR was the better looking car and the ST was uglier (until face lift, making them both on par) but this gen IMO the ST looks better than the new VXR.

    However IMO the Ford will handle far better, that trend won't change anytime soon IMO. (I'll be yelled at for slating Vauxhall again even though I wrote IMO twice in one sentence).

    Not sure about that. I quite like the current ST shape, but that one looks out of proportion. Front end with that big grill just looks too big for the rest of the car, and it looks like some sort of semi 4x4 off road model with comedy suspension.

    Maybe the 3dr will look better.

    It would look like a Mazda as you may find that Ford and Mazda do joint ventures, The Mazda 121 and Fiesta, The Mazda 2 and the Festa
