Designed to maximise your experience of road and track, the Ford Focus RS delivers the greatest satisfaction to drivers serious about performance. The third-generation Focus RS is equipped with innovative performance technology designed to enhance your driving experience.
Developed by the Ford RS team, The Focus RS features innovative Ford Performance AWD with Dynamic Torque Vectoring to deliver a new level of handling capability and driver enjoyment, combining exceptional traction and grip with unmatched agility and cornering speed.
Based on the new Focus, the RS features a powerful new front-end appearance with a bold upper trapezoidal grille above the deep front splitter. A wide, muscular stance is emphasised by the lower wings and large outboard openings on each side of the car, which feed the brake cooling ducts and house vertically-mounted fog lamps. At the rear, the large diffuser optimises air flow from under the vehicle to reduce drag, and also contains the twin round high-performance exhaust outlets. The rear roof spoiler is integrated into the silhouette through side panels and features a subtle embossed RS logo.
The new flat-bottomed steering wheel with soft-feel leather enhances your performance driving while the new signature RS Recaro seats in partial leather and alloy foot pedals reaffirm the RS experience. The distinctive blue RS theme is echoed through stitching on the seats, steering wheel, floor mats, interior trim, and gear shift. To increase driving comfort, the Focus RS includes Ford SYNC 2 with DAB radio and 8” touchscreen display, rear-view parking camera, ambient LED courtesy lighting, and optional cruise control.
The specially engineered 2.3 litre 350PS EcoBoost engine and innovative All-Wheel Drive system, deliver more responsive power with superior traction and agility. With this, the Ford Performance team have created the fastest ever RS reaching 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 266 km/h (165 mph). AWD Torque Vectoring Control provides superior traction with a twin rear clutch vectoring system that diverts up to 100% of rear drive torque to a single wheel during corning if required.
Four active drive modes are available to tailor to your driving experience; Select from Normal, Sports, Track or Drift. Each mode adjusts the AWD system, damper controls, Electronic Stability Control and ABS systems, steering and engine response, and even the engine sound. Additionally, engage the RS Launch Control that lifts the torque limit in first gear, providing optimal traction and acceleration.
