By  | 

The new Ford Focus RS is a vehicle that you are going to either love when you see it or hate on sight. This is a sporty hatchback that offers performance thanks to the EcoBoost engine from the Ford Mustang which offers 350 horses. While it is a great vehicle there are some who are not too happy with it. So the question is, would you go with the RS or choose the Subaru WRX STi?

There are some haters who say that the Ford Focus RS isn’t a fast as it should be. Along with this people have complained about it coming with too much driving aid technology and so it really isn’t a driver’s car. Many think that the Subaru WRX STi is a better choice.

The Ford Focus RS and the Subaru WRX STi both offer up many similarities. They are both affordable, they both offer plenty of power and both are suitable for driving round on a day to day basis. However the WRX only offers up 305 horses.

You really cannot choose a winner on paper and really a full comparison in a race is the only way to see which comes out ahead. But would you choose the Ford Focus RS or would you rather be behind the wheel of the Subaru WRX STi?
