2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test

Is there a more vibrant and diverse segment on the market right now than that labelled 'hot hatch'? In fact, is it technically a segment at all, but rather a broad net cast wide enough to include a $25K compact-sized Suzuki Swift Sport at one extreme and larger, circa-$80K Audi RS3s and Merc-AMG A45s at the other? And that’s just hatchbacks...

Ford has detailed new technologies for the upcoming Focus range, including a fighter-jet inspired head-up display (HUD) and an adaptive suspension system that can sense potholes. Both features have been detailed by the Blue Oval's European division, as both will make their regional debut when the all-new small car arrives...

2012-2016 Ford Kuga, Focus manual recalled

Ford Australia has recalled Kuga and Focus models fitted with a manual transmission built between December 2012 and June 2016, over concerns about an overheating clutch assembly. According to the company, the clutch assembly could overheat if there's excessive clutch slip. If the condition occurs, the clutch pressure plate could crack or fracture, which could then damage the assembly and create a fluid leak...

Ford Focus: Through the generations

The all-new 2018 Ford Focus has just been revealed, and will be lobbing in Australian showrooms towards year's end – but how did it get to where it is now? We thought we'd take a look back on the previous three generations of Ford's popular small car, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, coinciding with the launch of its fourth iteration...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

Not too long ago, I wrote a review for my 2013 Focus ST I affectionately named 'STewie'. By far the best car I'd ever owned to date, STewie converted me from a Nissan man to a Ford man. With the phase-out of the Focus RS coming, late last year I was battling with myself whether I should upgrade from a perfectly good car, which I loved, to my dream car before it was too late...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

Coming from a 2015 Focus ST LZ, this car is not just an upgrade or swap-over. Its raw power alone will put a smile on your face every time you take off at the lights. The difference between the two cars is chalk and cheese when it comes to handling and performance, and yet both cars are fun to drive...

2010 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo review

Having learnt to drive on country roads in north-west Tasmania, I have always preferred small, well-sorted cars rather than large, heavy ones. I have enjoyed showing a Commodore V8 a clean pair of heels on a windy road with some black ice in my modestly powered Fiat 128 Sport when, if raw power is compared, the Commodore should have left the Fiat in the dust...

2017 Ford Focus RS review

I bought a 2017 Mustang GT V8 manual in April 2017, and from the moment I took it home I was very disappointed with the quality of the manual transmission and also the overall build quality of the Mustang. In fact, it really left me perplexed as to how this car made it through Ford's quality control in the States and, if any, our QC here in Oz...
