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
Peugeot 208 - Which? first drive
http://whi.ch/pug208 Peugeot was once the badge to beat when it came to
small cars but its more recent efforts with the 207 and 206 have fallen
flat. In this video we take a look to see if the new 208 can redeem that.
