Ford has revealed the all new Focus ST - developed by Ford Performance to deliver nimble hot hatchback thrills in a stylish, comfortable and practical family car.

The Ford Focus ST builds on the class leading driving dynamics that the fourth generation Focus is known for
The all new Focus ST builds on the class leading driving dynamics of the fourth generation Focus in five-door hatch and estate body styles.

Ford's new C2 architecture is enhanced with unique suspension, braking and powertrain configurations for the most responsive and agile Focus ST driving experience ever - on road and track.

A new engine lineup creates up to 12% more power and 17% more torque compared with the previous generation Focus ST.

Ford's 276bhp 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and 187bhp 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine both deliver a broad spread of power and torque across the rev range.

Ford's first application of an Electronic Limited-Slip Differential for a front-wheel drive vehicle further enhances the cornering and stability of new Focus ST, sharpening responses to changing grip levels and driver inputs using computer-controlled pre-emptive actuation.

A choice of six-speed manual or new, quick-shifting, seven-speed automatic transmissions is offered, and Selectable Drive Modes technology is introduced to the Focus ST for the first time, enabling drivers to adjust the vehicle's character to suit the driving scenario. Continuously Controlled Damping - standard for five-door EcoBoost variants - enhances the Short Long Arm independent rear suspension configuration for ultimate refinement.

The Focus ST features functional styling changes such as revised upper and lower front grille designs optimised for increased cooling capability
The Focus ST builds on the premium, sporting Focus silhouette with subtle, functional styling changes and unique alloy wheel designs.

Revised upper and lower front grille designs are optimised for increased cooling capability, and bold signature lower wing elements channel air in to the air-curtain inlets for improved aerodynamic performance.

A larger, more steeply angled rear roof spoiler increases downforce to support the Focus ST's driving dynamics.

A twin exit tailpipe configuration borders the aggressively styled rear diffuser element, and improves practicality by delivering the towing capability that was prevented by the centre-exit tailpipes of the previous generation Focus ST.

Exterior colour options chosen to emphasise the Focus ST's dynamic styling include exclusive Ford Performance Blue and Orange Fury, alongside Frozen White, Magnetic grey, Race Red, Ruby Red and Shadow Black. Bold alloy wheel options include 18-inch Dark Sparkle and Magnetite designs, with a 19-inch wheel also offered in Magnetite.
