Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Unsurprisingly, the ST is the same as any other Ford Focus when it comes to passenger space. That makes it one of the roomiest hot hatches you can buy.

There’s plenty of space in the front, and the hatchback version has more head and leg room in the rear than many rivals, including the Hyundai i30N and Renault Megane RS. In estate form, the Focus ST is right up there with its closest competitor for space, the estate Cupra Leon.
