Ford has recently changed the game of driving once again with the introduction of the new Ford Focus ST, the most advanced ST to date. One thing’s for certain – This is not a car… it’s a masterpiece!
Ford has gone to great lengths to make the driving experience of this machine much better than ever before. The ST is filled with industry-first technologies, increased craftsmanship and a powerful 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine.
In keeping with the Ford Focus ST tradition, the new model features beautiful, sporty looks. The people over at Ford improved on this appearance, however, with a more muscular, aggressive appearance, featuring a lower, wider stance and expertly sculpted curves.
Under the bonnet lies the 184kW, 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that is highly regarded around the world for its extraordinary combination of power and efficiency. It has the ability to leap from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds. For the first time ever, Ford has added an Auto-Start-Stop feature, which improves the fuel consumption by 6%, making it the most fuel-efficient petrol Ford Focus ST ever made.
The new Ford Focus ST contains a long list of advanced technologies and innovations to make it arguably the best car on the road, including the industry-first Enhanced Transitional Stability (ETS) that senses vehicle stability and driver input to predict when a skid or loss of control could happen, and intervenes as required to give you optimal control.
Ford has also opted to improve upon its SYNC® connectivity system with the SYNC®2 system, which gives the driver access to audio, climate control and mobile connectivity using voice control and an 8-inch HD colour touchscreen. This will be exclusively available in the ST3 derivative with the ST1 derivative containing the same quality SYNC® system as the previous generation.
