Ford Focus RS review – design
The Focus RS impresses with strong performance and great handling
Only available with five doors and no wider than the standard model, the new Focus RS isn’t as bespoke at the previous versions. It doesn’t posses the subtle menace of the Mk1, nor is it as wild or as outrageous at the Mk2. The new Focus RS might not look that exciting in pictures, but in the metal the large grill opening, rear wing and big exhausts do make it look suitably imposing.
The body modifications aren’t just for looks though, the Focus RS produces absolutely no lift. It might not be downforce, but for a hatchback, that’s incredible.
