2017 Ford Focus RS is One Incredible, High-Flying Hatch

No matter how you slice it, there sure is an awful lot to appreciate about our esteemed American automaker's hot hatchback, the 2017 Focus RS. It is, far and away, one of the most impressive vehicles we here at Nelson Ford have ever encountered.

Yet, what makes it so?

Here with an explanation is AutoGuide.com Road Test Editor Dan Ilika; check out his review of the Focus RS in the clip below:

We could sing the praises of the Focus RS's engine -- a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder -- for days on end.

Coupling with a six-speed manual transmission and standard all-wheel drive, the four-banger boasts a brawny 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

Likewise, it can make 0 to 60 mph happen in a hurry, arriving there in just 4.7 seconds.

So, what's the hold-up, faithful friend? The time is now to experience the splendor of this spitfire. As such, we invite you to pop by our Martinsville, VA facility, whereupon we'll happily arrange a test drive in the Focus RS, or any other Ford model you might've had in mind.
