2016 Ford Focus RS fully revealed
The 2016 Ford Focus RS has been revealed. This third-generation model gets a turbocharged engine with an all-wheel drive setup.
Ford have confirmed the turbocharged 2.3-litre 4-cylinder engine will produce “more than” 315 hp, with a 6,500 rpm redline. Power is delivered via a 6-speed manual transmission. Expect a lot of pops and crackles to feature in the engine soundtrack.
The exterior gets an aggressive look with its big air vents, rear wing, rear diffuser and two large exhaust pipes. It will be available only as a 5-door version.
The interior will feature Recaro sports seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, alloy pedals, 8-inch touchscreen and Ford’s Sync2 connectivity system.
Since this will be the first Focus RS to be officially sold outside Europe, it could arrive in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and GCC markets.
