What Car? says...
In turbulent times, it’s good to know that the Ford Focus ST remains a constant – at least in the hot-hatch sector.
You see, Ford has an immense and enviable legacy of building great high-performance hatchbacks (including the excellent Ford Fiesta ST), and there's been a sizzling ST version of all four generations of the Focus. As with the previous-generation model, you can order this latest Focus ST with a petrol or diesel engine and either a hatchback or estate body.
The big question, then, is whether the Ford Focus ST is the king of the hot hatch category. We'll let you know over the next few pages of this review.
If you’d like to buy a new ST – or any other make and model that suits your needs – you could save thousand if you search our free What Car? New Car Buying service for the lowest prices. It's a good place to find the best Ford Focus ST deals.
