Cementing the Ford Focus as a hot hatch legend, the first generation ST was an instant hit with petrol heads everywhere. Now, all-new for 2019, the Focus ST moves the game on again with even greater performance and technology.
Leaving you in no doubt that this is a performance version of the Mk4 Focus, the Focus ST upgrades its sibling’s already stunningly crafted bodywork with an exclusive bodykit, spoiler and badging. Eye-catching details like 19-inch 5x2-spoke alloy-wheels and adaptive LED headlights add the finishing touches.
Inside, the Focus ST retains the high-quality, premium fit and finish of the standard car, while adding a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel, eight-way adjustable Recaro seats and carbon fibre trim. All controls fall easily to hand, allowing your focus to remain exactly where it should be: on the business of driving.
Under the bonnet of the Focus ST lies your choice of a Ford 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, capable of producing 274bhp and 0-100km/h in just 5.7 seconds, or a 2.0-litre diesel unit, with an output of 187bhp. Diesel cars come with a six-speed manual gearbox, while those equipped with petrol engines are also available with a seven-speed automatic. Whichever you choose, breath-taking performance awaits, with a finely-tuned chassis providing lightning-fast responses and total control.
As you would expect from a flagship sports model like the Focus ST, the levels of standard equipment and technology are high. A B&O Premium Audio System, Adaptive Cruise Control and navigation system are just a few examples of what’s on offer. A whole host of impact protection, intelligent traction and braking systems also offer the best possible protection and grip in all conditions.
