The 2018 Ford Focus RS hatchback makes for an excellent contender in the compact hatchback class. With a single trim on offer, the Ford Focus RS hatchback has a base MSRP of $41,120 and competes directly with the Volkswagen Golf R and the Honda Civic Type-R.
Only a 2.3L Turbocharged Inline 4 engine is offered, mated to a 6-speed Manual transmission. Together, they produce 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, the Focus RS maintains a combined fuel economy of 22 MPG. Ford offers the Focus RS in 2 stunning colors, with the Race Red being a particular favorite of ours.
