TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Ford to debut Focus ST at Paris motor show

Ford is set to wow the global automotive stage during the Paris Motor Show with the display of the entire next-generation Focus model range and its performance version--the Focus ST.

The Focus ST stays true to the model’s sporting heritage by giving driving enthusiasts a car that combines performance and handling with an addictive aural experience. Underneath the Focus ST’s bonnet resides an inline-four, 2-liter Ford EcoBoost engine that was tuned to produce 246hp. Paired to it is a six-speed manual gearbox.

An aggressive exterior helps define the Focus ST’s sporty character with the front fascia’s deeper front bumper and gaping one-piece grille, which replaces the two-tiered design on the standard Focus. The rear also gets the same sporty treatment like the spoiler mounted above the tailgate and center-mounted exhaust pipe.

Inside, the Focus ST has sport seats with body-colored inserts and stitching, a trio of secondary gauges for the oil temperature, turbocharger boost pressure and battery charge, and carbon-fiber-like trim on the center console.
