For the first time Ford plans to offer its Focus RS worldwide. The Germans can be proud that it has been developed mainly in Cologne, although its engine originates from the Ford Mustang. It is the third generation Focus RS, whereby the designation 'RS' based on a Ford 15m from 1968.

Addition to the exciting exterior with pleasant unobtrusive radiator grille, the four doors attract attention, but Ford argues with the different needs of potential customers in this world. Of course there also has to be mentioned that there is absolutely no Ford Focus with two doors.

Another new feature is once again the engine, which has lost more than 200 cm³ and nevertheless develops more performance. Do not take our data above too seriously, since the car will be available not until end of 2015. This shall also apply to the engine performance.

One thing is for sure, it will be the first Focus RS with all-wheel drive. That alone already sets it apart from the Focus ST. Also, it will not be obtainable as Turnier (estate car) and/or with diesel engine. For differences inside we recommend the view on picture 2.

In addition, the there not visible seats with special openings for full race harnesses would be worth to look at. Of course, everywhere emblazoned the RS logo. Whether the diffuser rear really supports the prominent rear spoiler or more the good optical appearance, may remain undecided.

The front seems to have succeeded, although the intercooler was to place, once again enlarged. By the way you can imagine at such details that the saving of fuel, despite a smaller engine of course did not had the topmost priority, because the intercooler will deliver more heat than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, there is a drawback of the Ford Focus as base for an RS model, and this is its weight. The ST Turnier also has lost just against the corresponding Seat Leon Cupra, because it was heavier, well over 100 kg. The kerb weight can hardly be more favourable after changeover to four-wheel drive.

On the plus side remains the also for tuning favourable Focus chassis, the successful front and of course the price, with the Ford already left behind the competitors one or the other times. From this model one has even the expectation, owners of premium models to lure to the brand Ford. 04/15               Top of page               Index
