Review: Ford’s Focus ST is a fun, fast performance bargain

Here at Gizmag, we love the combination of pace and practicality offered up by the best hot hatches. So you can imagine our excitement at the prospect of spending a week behind the wheel of Ford’s Focus ST, a hot hatch that proves just at home on the daily grind as it is on the open road.

Around town it feels reasonably grown up, which is absolutely crucial if Ford is to poach members of the Golf club. The ride has been made stiffer than it was in the last ST, but it’s still far softer than the Megane R.S we drove last year. Visibility is good, the clutch is light and the EcoBoost motor’s 345 Nm of torque means you can leave it in third gear and just lean on the throttle to get around.

It’s so flexible we actually found ourselves leaving it in third when you’d usually need second, and you can leave it in sixth gear on the freeway without worrying your left leg when it comes time to overtake.
