Focus ST
Price: Starting at $24,425
The Focus ST has been the high-performance version of the popular compact until the arrival of the all-wheel drive, 350-horsepower Focus RS for 2016. With the Focus RS priced over $35,000, the Focus ST is still a performance bargain, coming in just under the $25,000 mark. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque combined with a 6-speed manual transmission, the front-wheel-drive Focus ST features sport springs, sport-tuned shock absorbers, electric power steering and Torque Vectoring Control. Available SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen and voice-activated technology offers conversational voice recognition and swipe and pinch-to-zoom functionality.
