Focus RS: “We have a new hero” says Top Gear

April 5, 2016

The lucky writers at Top Gear – the UK’s biggest-selling auto magazine – get to drive all the latest supercars.

So what do you think they’ve named as their 2016 Car of the Year? A Ferrari, Lamborghini, or maybe a Porsche?

Guess again. Top Gear’s favourite new model is our Focus RS hatchback – a car with four doors, a big boot, and packing more than enough driving thrills to take on super-expensive exotica.

“The Focus RS really is the complete package and claims our top award ahead of other category winners costing ten times as much,” Charlie Turner, Top Gear editor-in-chief.

With a powerful 350 PS EcoBoost engine, the Focus RS can sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds. Customers who were equally quick off the mark are already starting to take delivery of their cars, which cost from £29,995.
“What makes the RS so special is that it combines vivid personality with real practicality and serves it up at such a tempting price. We have a new hero,” Turner said.
