Unsurprisingly, the ST is just the same as any other Focus when it comes to passenger space, which means it’s one of the roomiest hot hatches you can buy. There’s plenty of space in the front and in the rear, the hatchback version has more head and leg room than rivals, including the Hyundai i30N and Renault Megane RS. Even the Honda Civic Type R can’t beat it in this regard. Meanwhile, the estate betters its closest competitor, the Seat Leon Cupra ST.
Boot space in the hatchback version is roughly on a par with the Megane and i30N, but you’ll fit more suitcases or shopping in a Civic Type R or a Skoda Octavia vRS. The estate version obviously has a bigger boot, but it’s still not on par with the capacious Octavia vRS Estate’s.
