ProsConsWhat's New

Surprisingly powerful 2.3L engine.

The sports front seats aren't suitable for everyone.

Now offers standard Navigation and power front seats.

Excellent handling characteristics thanks to its capable AWD.

Ride quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Offers standard 19-inch wheels.

Rather refined at low revs.

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.
