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.

The first part of our Ford Focus RS versus Subaru WRX STI versus Volkswagen Golf R comparison, the road test, ended with the Volkswagen claiming victory over the new Ford and the Subaru. This, though, is the second instalment – the track element – and it's the best chance the compromised but vastly gifted RS has to win back some ground...

Ford Focus RS v Subaru WRX STI v Volkswagen Golf R Comparison: Road Test

Think turbocharged, four-wheel-drive cars and it's hard not to picture rally monsters flying over jumps and sliding through forests millimetres from trees. These days, though, buyers keen for a road-going, boosted, all-paw performance car are spoilt for choice. And, if you've got around $50k to spend, three of the best you can buy are the Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI, and Volkswagen Golf R...

Ford Focus Trend v Mazda 3 Maxx Comparison

Small hatchbacks such as the Mazda 3 and Ford Focus are not selling quite as well as they used to, with the boom in small crossovers such as the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V eating heartily into their market share.

Ford Focus RS500 hero hatch on the rocks - report

The hotter version of one the hottest hatches you can buy - the Ford Focus RS500 - may never see the light of day, according to a new report out of the UK.

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...

2016 Ford Focus TREND Review

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

I thought I'd write a review on this car seeing as I've just sold it after 3 years of trouble free ownership. I purchased it 3 years ago and it was the best car I've ever owned. Beautiful to drive in all conditions (despite the lack of cruise), 100% reliable and cheap to run considering it's a European hot hatch. The best thing about this car was the engine, it's brilliant...
