it’s hard to ignore the ST’s value, with more than enough performance to take the fight to the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Vauxhall Astra VXR, the appealing option of an estate version (something denied to most other hot hatchback buyers) and an amusingly throaty induction note thanks to Ford’s clever acoustics work. If you can put up with the torque steer and the slightly ropey cabin design, it’s a compelling performance option.
With 25bhp more power than its predecessor, the Focus ST sprints to 62mph in 6.5sec, matching the Volkswagen Golf GTI.
