The order books are now open for Ford’ all-new hot hatch, the Focus ST. It arrives in UK showrooms in January next year to take on key rivals, the VW Golf GTI and Vauxhall Astra VXR.
Ford may have come late to the current hot hatch party, but will undercut its
competitors on price, with the 221bhp ST starting from £17,495. That’s £2500
less than the cheapest Golf GTI and £1500 less than the Astra VXR. Like these
two cars, the ST will fall in insurance group 17.
The first 1500 customers to place an order for the ST will be able to put their
car through its paces at an exclusive road and track day, with Prodrive in Warwickshire.
