Updates promise to make fast Ford Focus ST Estate more fun than ever

It seems strange that hot wagons arenít more popular, because this 2015 Ford Focus ST Estate delivers all the handling, speed and excitement of the hatch, with genuine family friendly practicality. Despite power output staying constant, the EcoBoost engine is a peach, even if the ride is a bit nibbly. If you prioritise fuel economy then the diesel is a better idea, but if itís thrills youíre after, the petrol car wins hands down.

Hot estates are making a serious comeback of late. Forget the array of V8-powered Mercedes AMG wagons currently available, weíre talking about mainstream family cars with a sting in their tail. The Skoda Octavia vRS has been around for a couple of years now, but youíll soon be able to buy a SEAT Leon Cupra ST, while a new Volkswagen Golf GTD Estate has been confirmed for the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Ford can claim some credit for the renewed interest Ė itís been offering a Focus ST Estate since 2012, and thanks to a recent series of mechanical and cosmetic updates, it should be better to drive and as practical as ever. It threw in a curveball for the facelift, too, because you can now order your fast Focus Estate with the choice of a 247bhp 2.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine or a 182bhp 2.0 TDCi diesel. We drove the diesel ST hatch last month, so itís the petrol wagon weíre focusing on here.

From a purely practical point of view, the Focus Estate could well be all the car you ever need. Open the large tailgate and thereís 476 litres with the rear seats up, or a whopping 1,502 litres with them down, forming a perfectly flat load space. Compare that to 316 litres and 1,101 litres respectively for the hatchback and the benefits are easy to see.

OK, so thereís a slight penalty in terms of price and performance Ė the Estate costs £1,100 more than the equivalent hatchback and takes 0.2 seconds longer to cover 0-62mph.

But remarkably, claimed fuel economy and CO2 emissions are identical at 41.5mpg and... [Read More]

2016 Ford Focus RS Sedan Digitally Imagined

When Hungarian pixel artist X-Tomi Design lets its creative juices flow, youíd better be prepared for a helluva good rendering. After X-Tomi offered the World Wide Web with his take on a wagon-ified 2016 Ford Focus RS, the same Photoshop wizard returns with the sedan variant rendering of the hottest hot hatch of the moment.

As you can see in the photo gallery below, X-Tomi didnít go all wild with the 2016 Ford Focus RS sedan, but only elongated the actual thing in a similar fashion to what the Blue Oval has done with the 2015 Ford Focus and its sedan brother. Even the taillights and the trunk door were perfectly replicated by X-Tomi.

While the humdrum sedan makes do with a tiny boot spoiler, the rendering on hand adds a bigger wing a la the Subaru WRX STI, but its size isnít on par with the humongous spoiler of the rally-bred monster from Japan. The blueish exterior color too might led you to believe that youíre looking at a Ford-badged WRX STI.

An aesthetic detail that sort of spoils the three-quarter view of the 2016 Ford Focus RS sedan rendering is the black, plasticky and pointy aerial. But then you look at the impressive aero diffuser, two exhaust pipes and those aggressive vents at the sides of the rear bumper, and it hits you: the Focus RS sedan is cool.

Unfortunately for us petrolheads, thereís no intel from FoMoCo on such a hot sedan or a wagon version of the 2016 Focus RS. Still, weíre thankful to the gods of high-octane gasoline and twin-scroll turbocharging that the Focus RS got the green light in compact hatchback format.

Now weíre waiting for the Blue Ovalís Saarlouis plant in Germany to gear up for production late this year, with first deliveries (United States of America and Canada included) slated for the first quarter of... [Read More]

Thank God Almighty, speed at last!

The long rumored and heavily speculated Focus RS is finally coming, and it looks fantastic! Images of the new RS were leaked last night, and the official European reveal was over a little while ago, and man, this thing is going to light some underwear on fire. Thanks to a few members posting up with some compiled details, we have a little more precise image of what this new RS we can expect with this new car.

One of our own had a close call - NickJ

Jan 26, 2015 - 7:36 PM - by ST3 4 ME
Just to let everyone know, @NickJ had a close call while riding his Indian a few weeks back. He is okay, thank goodness, and he rides ATGATT.

here is his story. I didn't link the images because I wanted to redirect the traffic to his thread. Be sure to use the mention feature when leaving your post.

The basics are as follows: I was traveling westbound on a 4 lane separated by a median. I was in the inner, left lane when I saw a white Jaguar positioned to turn left and travel in the opposite direction that I was traveling. The Jag was rolling a bit, so I kept my eyes on it. It then hesitated, that made me think "Okay, she saw me and is going to stop." I could not have been more wrong. She decided to pull out and there was nothing that I could do except lock up the brakes and lay the bike down.

I separated from the bike and managed to break three bones in my left foot.

This is the time that I would like to issue my thanks to the manufacturers of the gear that I was wearing. Due to the fact that I was wearing all of my gear, the extent of my injuries stopped at the few bones in my foot.
