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.

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 BMW M140i v Ford Focus RS comparison

We’ll admit a comparison test between the BMW M140i and Ford Focus RS doesn’t seem particularly logical on the surface, but there’s a method to the madness. Each demonstrates a different methodology for doing the same thing — turning a garden variety small hatchback into a bona fide road weapon...

2016 Ford Focus RS review

I’ve had my Focus RS for a little over a year now, during which time I've covered 22,000km, so I figured I may as well share a few of my experiences with the car. There’s been plenty said about what they’re like at full noise, but what are they like to live with? I ordered the car sight unseen back in January 2016, after the first lot of five-star reviews started dropping...

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...

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...
