This week I present to you a short Drive & Sound test with the recently facelifted Ford Focus ST, now as the all-new Diesel version delivering 185 hp and 400 Nm of torque! When Ford had invited to drive the new Mustang I was really hoping they would bring this new ST with them as I was curious how good Ford's interpretation of the Golf (7) GTD is. Luckily they had one there and this car brings in all the sportiness you expect from a sport hot hatch, even with the Diesel engine. Regarding acceleration it needs to be said that the 0-200 km/h wasn't done in the flat, therefore the time to 200 km/h isn't really comparable. Nevertheless you can definitely feel the 400 Nm of torque and the chassis is well balanced between sport and comfort. A nice move from Ford, they have taken the same exhaust system and in-cab sound generator that is put into the petrol ST (250hp), therefore it sounds quite good! Anyhow, if you enjoyed watching this don't hesitate to LIKE / COMMENT / SUBSCRIBE.
2019 Ford Focus Visual Comparison: Out With The Old, In With The New Ford has been hard at work rolling out new models lately. But few will be as important – to the manufacturer and to consumers – as the new Focus. Just last year, Ford sold 158,385 examples of the Focus in the United States alone. That makes the compact model Dearborn’s second best-selling car, and a bigger seller than most of its trucks. (Only the Fusion, Explorer, Escape, and F-Series outsell it.) And that’s not even counting other markets overseas, where the Focus accounts for an even higher proportion of Ford’s sales. And that’s after the current Focus has grown long in the proverbial tooth. The last time Ford replaced the model completely was in 2011. The following year, it sold nearly 246,000 of them, just in the US. In 2000, two years after the original’s introduction, it sold over 286,000. Those are figures that the Blue Oval will undoubtedly be hoping to reach – if not exceed – with this all-new model… even in the current crossover-crazy market. And while the full picture has yet to come into, um… Focus, it’s clear just from looking at its design that the new Focus represents a marked improvement over the long-serving model it replaces. Revolution Over Evolution On the spectrum of redesigns, Ford has evidently favored a more revolutionary approach than an evolutionary one. It’s clearly a Focus, but it’s also immediately evidently that it’s a completely new one. The automaker has resisted the urge to enlarge the new Focus to bloated proportions. But while the size hasn’t changed, the proportions have. With a cab-rearward design, the new model has a longer hood to give it a sportier profile. Yet the new Focus boasts more room inside for cargo and passengers, with easier ingress and egress.

It’s a fast Ford, one of the car world’s greatest traditions. But in the age of the all-wheel-drive RS, the ST is no longer the hottest Focus around. That does give it a renewed, slightly softer role in the world, signalled by a sparky diesel version joining the range. And no, it’s not called the STD.
It’s the third generation, following the lukewarm Mk1 ST170 and thirsty, five-cylinder Mk2 ST, and it’s sharper than both. A 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine serves up 247bhp and 266lb ft in the petrol version, while a diesel gets an identically sized engine with 182bhp and 295lb ft. The latter has undeniable appeal if running costs are a worry, but the former is what you really need for the bona fide hot hatch experience.
Or hot estate experience. Yep, like the first ST170, you can have the latest ST as either a hatch or estate. Skoda, VW and Seat offer the same with their hot hatches, too. It’s a niche, no doubt, but one the petrolhead with a family can surely get on board with.
A facelift in 2015 gave this ST a bit of an update, with retuned electric power steering and stiffer suspension, as well as the neater styling of the Mk3 Focus in its second phase. It also saw a key update to the interior, neatening up its mess of buttons and bringing more up-to-date media systems. What hasn’t changed are its wonderfully hugging (perhaps too hugging) Recaro sports seats.
Ford is about to replace the Focus, and with it will come a new Focus ST. Given the RS is now the fastest, feistiest Focus on sale, the ST will likely live on in its middle ground, offering more fun and speed than normal, but with a bit more subtlety and civility than its angrier brother. If you avoid the Tangerine Scream orange paint, that is…
Starting below £25,000, it’s also a useful £7,000 cheaper than an RS. But is it anywhere near as fun?
Small changes from a semi-recent facelift include retuned electric power steering and stiffer suspension. You might notice the latter; this is certainly no limo on Britain’s broken tarmac, and you should probably test drive it before deciding if you could live with one every day.
But if you can tolerate a purposely focused ride, here’s a car with a grippy front end – thanks to some clever torque vectoring – which goads you into going faster and faster at each corner, just as a good hot hatch should.
If you’re so inclined it can have a reasonable mobile rear end, too. It’s not spitefully snappy like an Eighties hot hatch, rather agile and keen if you’re confident braking deep into a turn or lifting off the throttle mid corner.
The petrol is just as before: extremely flexible in its power delivery yet grateful for a good revving, too, allowing you to stir the snickety manual gearchange as much or as little as you like. With no auto option, there’ll be no paddle-shifting here. Really extend the engine out and this is a blooming fast car, swifter perhaps than even its tidy 6.5sec 0-62mph time suggests.
The 182bhp diesel, meanwhile, is notably the less stimulating of the two cars, a point made obvious with the fact an automatic’s optional. Its 0-62mph time is pegged at 8.1sec, and as the powerband wanes just north of 4,000rpm, so might your excitement. But its 27kg premium over the petrol model isn’t immediately obvious, turn-in remaining keen and precise. It just lacks the effervescence that makes the petrol such a blast. A good option if you need to run a diesel for company car reasons, but the petrol is the one for enthusiast.
All told, the ST’s a fun hot hatch, but it’s showing its age. Since it first launched back in 2012, there’s been a bit of a hot hatch renaissance, with Hyundai, Peugeot and Honda - names absent from the scene back then - now making a rival that’s more exciting to drive, easier to live with, or both. The ST’s still a laugh, but it’s now a long way from the hot hatch podium. Bring on the next one.
