2018 Focus RS - A Performance Benchmark With Rallying Details

History
You might know the Focus as a well-rounded and fun-to-drive sedan or hatch, but for the uninitiated, the RS variant is truly something special. Based on the impressive World Rally Car of the same name that made waves at its 1999 Monte Carlo rally debut, the 2018 model has generated the same with 350 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and votes of confidence from renowned drift enthusiasts such as Ken Block (who served as a development consultant).

The 2018 Focus RS is one of thirty RS-badged models produced by Ford since 1968. After its Monte Carlo debut, the first generation production model debuted in 2002-blending rally-car inspired performance with day-to-day practicality and an accessible starting price. Redesigned for its second generation in 2009, and the current model debuting in 2016, each successor has taken that synergy to new heights. But the third generation model that the 2018 Focus RS represents gains more than altitude. It sets a new standard for the hot-hatch segment, while simultaneously beating the previous generations' 0-60 sprint by a full second.

Performance
Combing over the 2018 Focus RS' spec sheet with give any hoonigan or enthusiast some inspired shivers. The heart of the latest model is a 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission to get the most out of the 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque under your foot. That exceptional power puts the Focus RS at the front of the hot-hatch pack, and vaults it to sixty mph in 4.6 seconds.

To manage all that grunt-let alone make it tailorable-are numerous pieces of track-ready hardware, ranging from unique RS driver-selectable sport suspension to sport exhaust, adaptive dampers to a limited-slip differential. The result is more than speed, and the ability to select the right drive mode for your mood, but a wholly-emotional, rally-inspired experience fed by warbling, snarly exhaust, and a road feel that feels more RWD than FWD!

 

Exterior
The latest generation 2018 Focus RS' rally inspirations are found throughout its aggressive, eye-catching design. Up front, the slatted grille of its pedestrian cousin is replaced by a gaping maw bridged by an RS-badged chin splitter, optimized for high-speed handling. Dual bright exhaust tips, a rear diffuser and spoiler have functional qualities in addition to their athletic looks-damping lift and keeping the car pinned to the ground during any and all high-speed maneuvers.

Interior
Slide behind the RS leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the exclusive nature of the Focus RS immediately becomes clear. Available ambient interior lighting, SYNC3 connectivity, and a driver-configurable 4.2-inch color LCD display do more than add an upscale vibe, their unique RS-inspired flairs are drawn directly from the car's storied history overseas. Now, you and four passengers can enjoy it on our side of the pond in its ultimate form!

The 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition

The reason the Focus RS is offered in America at all is because enthusiasts asked. So when the same hoonigans and rally fans asked for something special for the 2018 model year, Ford delivered. The 2018 Limited Edition model comes standard with the Recaro, heated leather-trimmed seats with the RS logo, heated steering wheel, and other items from the once-optional RS2 bundle. But the biggest news is the addition of the Quaife limited-slip differential, which excises front wheel spin during acceleration and put more of the car's 350 horses to the road!

But 2018 looks to be an even more exclusive year for this already in-demand hot-hatch. Only 1,500 examples will be produced, meaning time is of the essence to make this car your own!
