The 2016 Ford Focus RS Will Race to 60 in Under 5 Seconds
By the time you’re done reading this sentence, the all-new Ford Focus RS is already at 60 mph. That’s how quick Ford’s new hot hatch is going to be when it hits the market. From a standstill, you'll be staring down 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. But wait, it gets even better. That 4.7 second 0-60 mph time comes courtesy of a 4-cylinder engine that pumps out 345 horsepower, pushing the Focus RS all the way to way to a top speed of 165 mph. For comparison’s sake, that 53 more ponies than you’ll find under the hood of the new Volkswagen Golf R. RELATED: See More of the All-New Ford Focus RS
There’s a lot of other things to love about the Focus RS too. There’s launch control, a more aggressive design inside and out, and probably the most intriguing feature: Drift Mode. This awesome mode lets you hang the tail out on this Focus, which would usually be difficult considering the RS is all-wheel drive.
So what will all this American hot hatch goodness cost? Glad you asked. Starting price for the new Focus RS is just $35,730. That doesn’t include options, though, we assure you it won’t be sparse.
