Subaru WRX Has Been Falling Behind Competition

By  | 

The Subaru WRX has been a vehicle that has done well on the market but now it happens to be falling behind its competition and we think that the Ford Focus RS is going to take it over.

The Subaru WRX has the 2 litre engine and it comes with the manual gearbox which has 6 speeds and offers up 268 horses. The Ford Focus RS is going to be coming to the US and we are expecting the vehicle to offer up even more.

The Ford Focus RS engine will be the 2.3 litre EcoBoost, which is the same engine that was used in the Ford Mustang. In the RS however we are expecting that the engine is going to be boosted and if so it may offer up about 345 horse power.

The engine on the Ford Focus RS will be boosted and it should take it from standstill to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds with the top speed being 165mph. It is thought the driving experience of the vehicle will have improved due to the Drift mode.

The Ford Focus RS is going to be heading to the market in the US and when it does we are expecting the price tag to be about $36, 605. But whether it is going to have what it needs for it to be able to beat the Subaru WRX remains to be seen.
