Subaru WRX: Way Behind The Finish Line?

By  | 

There simply isn’t a time when the Subaru WRX had gotten any sort of major criticisms; even after it came out. But now it is beginning to fall behind and other vehicles may take over. One vehicle that could take over is the Ford Focus RS.

The engine in the Subaru WRX is the 2 litre and it comes with 6 speed manual gearbox offering 268 horses. The Ford Focus RS is expected to arrive in the US and when it does the engine is going to be more powerful and it should offer up more horsepower.

The engine in the Ford Focus RS is thought to be the same that Ford made use of in the Ford Mustang and this is the 2.3 litre EcoBoost engine. However it should have been boosted and we can expect to see something in the region of 345 horses.

The engine offered in the Ford Focus RS will have been given a boost and we expect that it should take the vehicle from 0 to 62mph in only 4.7 seconds and the top speed should come in at about 165mph. Ford have given the vehicle the Drift Mode and this should mean that it will offer up an improved driving experience.

We are expecting the Ford Focus RS to arrive in the US very soon and the price tag should be in the region of around $36, 605. But whether it is going to be able to take over from the Subaru WRX we will have to wait and see. What’s your take on this, though?
