Ford Focus ST – 2 in 1: A performance car and a practical daily driver

ford-focus-st-2-in-1-a-performance-car-and-a-practical-daily-driver-155604The 2013 Ford Focus ST is a completely new development that, since the halt in production of the old model a couple of years ago, aims to win back ground it has since lost.

It really is all new, sitting on a new chassis and using a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine in place of the characterful old five-pot in the 2005-2010 model.

Three grades are available, mirroring the original Focus ST range from 2005. ST, ST-2 and ST-3 all share a healthy common core of kit including sublime Recaro seats that offer just about the perfect balance between comfort and support.
