One model might be the one to take the hit when Ford finally releases the Ford Focus RS model here in the US and that is the Subaru WRX STi. There is no denying that the Subaru WRX STi used to be one of the best but the slow rate at which they are upgrading their WRX STi means that rivals will find it easier to take them down.
The current Subaru WRX STi comes in with a 2.5 liter turbocharged engine that will be delivering about 305hp. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Subaru WRX STI is able to return about 17mpg in the city and 23mpg on the highway.
The Ford Focus RS, on the other hand, will be coming in with a 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine that will be offering about 350hp, 45hp more than what the Subaru WRX STI will be offering.
The Ford Focus RS will only need 4.7 seconds to go from 0-60mph. Let’s not forget the new Drift Mode features that Ford has to offer as well.
