Though it’s just newly available in North America, the Ford Focus RS wasted no time making a name for itself. The hot hatchback was just named the winner of AutoGuide.com’s 2017 Car of the Year award. Impressing the auto experts with a list of outstanding specs.
“Ford Focus RS is one of those rare cars that gets massive hype, then still delivered beyond our wildest expectations,” said Jonathan Yarkony, group editorial director for AutoGuide. “Not only is it a great deal on paper as a practical, all-wheel-drive hatchback, but it leaps right to the top of the hot-hatch segment with 350 horsepower, an enthusiast’s choice manual transmission and, best of all, its engaging character.”
This isn’t the only accolade the Focus RS has stolen. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost® I-4 powering Ford Focus RS has earned the prestigious 2017 Ward’s 10 Best Engines award − the first time the specially engineered engine has taken home a prize!
