Built to Perform
Blending track-day performance with everyday driving fun, Ford Performance have engineered the 2020 Focus ST hot-hatch to make the most of every driving experience.
Fast and Agile
Ford’s famed 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST, using advanced turbocharging technology delivering 206kW of power and 420Nm of torque2.
Take Your Pick
For the first time, the new Focus ST is available with a new 7-speed automatic transmission and 6-speed manual transmission. This along with Adaptive Shift Scheduling, which alters gearshift timings depending on different driving styles, delivers driving performance that is optimised whether you’re on the road or the track.
The Focus ST comes armed with Ford’s sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping technology. This smart system continuously monitors vehicle suspension. It then adjusts individual damping responses to deliver enhanced comfort and outstanding driving dynamics.
Control Through Corners
The Electronic Limited Slip Differential on the new Focus ST has been engineered to provide superior performance and stability. The system continuously analyses data from a range of sensors and can adjust the torque split between drive wheels within milliseconds. This improves traction, cornering and stability, meaning you can take corners more quickly whilst staying in control.
With Selectable Drive Modes, including Normal, Slippery, Sport and Track, you can seamlessly change between drive modes that suit the driving conditions and your driving scenario at the push of a button.
Take The Driver's Seat
So you get the most out of your Focus ST, it comes with race-inspired RECARO sport seats. Highly supportive, these seats are optimised to give you the perfect position for every drive.
No Strings Attached
No need for cables thanks to the sophisticated wireless charging pad. Charge your compatible device just by placing it on the pad.
The Focus’ 180-degree split view camera gives you incredible awareness of your surroundings. You’ll be able to spot hazards that can’t be seen over your shoulder or in the mirrors.
Listen Up, Speak Up
Not only does the Focus look good, it sounds good too, thanks to the B&O PLAY sound system. With 10 premium speakers it will transform your road trip with any playlist.
It’s all in the power of the voice. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto you'll be able to control music, hear text messages and find your nearest restaurant, all with voice commands7. Plus, the SYNC®3 system allows you to set and clear directions and view traffic conditions.
