The new version of the Ford Focus RS is said to be something of a beast on the track and in a straight line. At the moment the vehicle is waiting to compete with one of its main rivals and this is the Subaru WRX STi.
The Ford Focus RS and the Subaru WRX STi do have a lot in common. They are two vehicles that are affordable and both of them offer up maximum performance.
The Ford Focus RS has the 2.3 litre 4 cylinder engine from the Ford Mustang and this is the EcoBoost turbocharged engine offering 350 horses and the same in torque. The WRX STi has the 2.5 litre boxer engine and this gives out 305 horses.
If you look at the specs on paper then the Ford Focus RS seems to be the winner thanks to it offering up bigger figures. However nothing is set in stone until a proper rave between the Subaru WRX STi and the Ford Focus RS has taken place.
