2016 Ford Focus RS Review: One, Two, No

By  | 

If you’ve been expecting for the 2016 Ford Focus to be excitingly ideal for you, nope, it actually isn’t going to be that ideal. Sure, it’s going to be a perfect fit for enthusiasts who desire for just the “pace”, all-weather usability and driver-thrill from their five-door packed in awesomeness, but it’s not going to be one that you’ll label as comfortable. Nope.

For starters, you’ve got to admit that the interior looks horrendous. Check out the picture below and you’ll understand why. It’s got the old-fashioned vibe to it that makes it absolutely dull and either the colour isn’t saturated well enough, or it simply looks like a bland one.


There’s also the fact that the Focus RS’ bucket seats have a tendency of somewhat forcing you into a slightly perched driving position so as to get those downward adjustments fixed, but then again, it’s the same for every fast Focus that you might have remembered. And there’s no denying how tiresome it could get for anyone doing big miles in an RS because the tightly-sprung vertical body moment makes the car bob about a lot over uneven surfaces.

So if you’re looking for a faster and more powerful car, this isn’t really the one you should be opting for. Look elsewhere and you could be seeing much better alternatives that you never knew could be better than the 2016 edition of the Ford Focus RS.
