The ST is the hottest version of the current model Ford Focus offered to date. It won't ultimately be the most powerful -- a fire-breathing, rear-wheel drive RS will follow, but not until 2014. So, for now, this front-wheel drive racer is the 'performance Ford'.
In a break from tradition, this ST won't be offered as a three-door: only practical five-door and estate models are on sale. Under the bonnet, a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine replaces the previous car's five-cylinder 2.5, but it's been tweaked by Ford to offer more horsepower and torque (pulling power) than before.
With 247bhp and 265lb ft of torque it's capable of hitting 62mph from rest in 6.8 seconds. That's not quite the six seconds flat of a Vauxhall Astra VXR, but the Ford's power delivery is smoother, making it more useable and enjoyable.

New 2013 Seat Leon - Which? first drive
http://whi.ch/seatleon2013 The new 2013 Seat Leon has a tough brief: taking
on the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf in the medium car class. Following
the 2013 Golf and Audi A3, the Leon is the latest car to use Volkswagen
Group's new MQB platform. So it's essentially a Golf underneath, with the
same engines, gearboxes, suspension, brakes and many other components. Can
it beat its sister VW at its own game? Which? was on the launch in Spain to

Meet Ken Block and his 350 HP plus Focus ST TrackSTer at the Chicago Auto Show
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Ken Block made an appearance at the Chicago Auto
Show for the debut of the Ford Focus TrackSTer that he developed along with
the team from Fifteen52. The California based Fifteen52 and Block are
designing three different Ford Focus ST builds with the aim of making an
already great vehicle even better. Project ST launched back in the summer
of 2012 and, with regular updates to their website, has generated a lot of
enthusiasm leading up to this Ford Focus TrackSTer debut. Now that fans
have gotten a look at the first build, they can expect to see the remaining
two builds appearing throughout the country over the course of 2013 along
with Block and the Fifteen52 team.

2013 Mazda3 vs Jeep Wrangler Snowstorm Winter Tire Mashup Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mazda3 and the new Jeep Wrangler don't
have a lot on common. In fact they are about as different as two cars can
be. The Jeep Wrangler is an old school body on frame off-road behemoth
while the Mazda3 is a perky small run about. So which one of these is
better in the snow? We decided to find out in another fun and interesting
TFLcar mashup test. To make it a fair contest we of course got a set of
dedicated snow tires for the front-wheel-drive Mazda but kept the stock set
of all season tires on the 4X4 Jeep. To make it even more fair we kept the
jeep Wrangler in two-wheel-drive and headed to Lick Skillet Road (America's
steepest country Road) in a snowstorm. So which of these two cars conquered
the Colorado Mountain road? You'll have to watch this video to find out.
