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

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...

2016 Subaru WRX STI Review

I bought the base WRX STI MY17 two weeks ago and have one word to sum it up - Exhilarating!! After test driving both the standard WRX and the STI, I felt that the regular WRX was much easier to drive and felt more like a better daily driver - a great car and a brilliant performance bargain for the price. However, after driving the STI, I felt absolutely engaged on the road...

When I was at the dealership I decided to test drive the newly released MY16 WRX...

Servicing is not as cheap as some of the other fixed price servicing programs, however it isn't as expensive as the German counterparts...

2016 Subaru WRX Premium (AWD) Review

  Having recently dropped my MY16 WRX Premium off for it's first service (at 6, rather than 12 months disappointingly), I thought it was time to share some of my experience with the car.
