Maximum cornering control
Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road.
Turbocharging, twin-independent variable cam timing technology, high-pressure direct fuel injection: the 2.0-litre, 250PS EcoBoost petrol engine utilises them all to deliver (in the 5-door model) a 0-62mph, time of just 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 154 mph (limited). This lightweight aluminium engine is ultra-responsive and exceptionally efficient: providing swift acceleration through the gears and maximum torque available from just 2000 RPM.
Technology that sees what you can’t see
The Blind Spot Information System uses RADAR sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your Focus ST and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror. Coupled with traffic sign recognition, Active City Stop, a Thatcham Category 1 alarm and Keyless button start - The Focus ST is both a performance and technological marvel.
