2016 Ford Focus Sport Review

Read the article here. The 2016 Ford Focus got a new, more aggressive look. The front looks more like the smaller Fiesta and larger Mondeo now, with the trapezoidal grille treatment giving the car more presence on the road. The model range update saw the base model Ambiente scrapped, with Ford slimming the mainstream range to the entry-level Trend, the Sport tested here, and the flagship Titanium...

2016 Ford Focus RS Review

Read the article here. There’s really no other way to say this, so let’s just be blunt about it. The 2016 Ford Focus RS is a staggeringly good sports car. It has almost everything you could expect from an AWD super-hot hatch… almost. With a starting price of $50,990, the new and now all-wheel drive Focus RS is without doubt the performance bargain of the year...

2018 Ford Focus exterior and interior spied

The fourth-generation Ford Focus has been spied for the first time with production panels. Not only that, but the spy photographers also managed to take a shot of the new car's interior. Beyond the hatch's overall shape, the pronounced shoulder line, and the Hofmeister-style kink to the rear door line, it's hard to make out too many of the car's other details, as there plastic disguise panels attached to the doors, tailgate, and bumpers...

2012 Ford Focus SPORT Review

Originally I was looking for a 4WD SUV, when I spotted a red sport at the Ford dealer I was walking through. The colour definitely caught my eye as did the low interest finance on offer. My trade in offer was higher than expected which sealed the deal for me. I had traded in my VY Commodore which had only done 105,000kms and was in excellent shape...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

The hot hatch market has no shortage of contenders vying for consumers’ hard-earned dollars, but even a decade on, the Ford Focus XR5 Turbo remains a unique offering with a number of welcome quirks...

2016 Ford Focus RS review

  What I hate The Sync2 infotainment unit is a joke. Slow, laggy and not really a touch screen, it feels like Ford ripped it out of the first generation touch phones that you really need to apply quite a bit of pressure for it to actually do anything. The clutch! I gotta be honest here, I've never stalled a car as many times as I've stalled the RS in the first week as a daily...

2016 Ford Focus RS Review

After just over 2 months of ownership and nearly 2,500 km, I feel I can safely talk about what’s it like to live with a Focus RS. As a massive petrolhead, I headed down to Ford in September ‘15 to order a Mustang GT, but I wasn't prepared to join the wait lists nearing 12 months, so I looked for other options...
