The Rundown: 2016 Ford Focus ST

Want to know about the 2016 Ford Focus ST and only have a few minutes? Well, you are in the right place with this quick reference guide.

Things have changed just a little for the Ford Focus ST, it is no longer the hottest hot hatch in the Ford line-up, the new AWD and more powerful Focus RS has come along and stolen away some of the attention. Albeit, it starts $11,000 above the ST and at over $50,000!

Recently updated for 2016, the Ford Focus ST though starts at the much more reasonable $38,990.

Under the bonnet of the Focus ST is a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 184kW/340Nm. It is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.
