Join World Rallycross presenter Andrew Coley as he compares two of Ford Performance’s pace-setting hatchbacks

The Ford Focus ST and the Focus RS are uniquely different sides of the same coin, united by the engineering expertise and passion of Ford Performance.

With the Focus ST, you get a unique sporty body kit, a range of eye-catching colours and a turbocharged 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine. The Focus RS takes it all to another level. 

With 345bhp from the 2.3-litre Ford EcoBoost engine, a computer-controlled all-wheel-drive system and unique body styling – all of which has been influenced by Ford’s motorsport heritage and its experience in racing and rallying – the Focus RS is the ultimate extension of the Ford Focus ethos.

Even better, both the Focus ST and the Focus RS have all the practicality and everyday usability you would expect from one of Ford’s popular hatchbacks. Find out more as ex-rally driver and World Rallycross presenter Andrew Coley puts them head-to-head and compares their best features.
