Auto Trader UK Takes Spanking-New 2016 Ford Focus RS for a Spin

They say big things come in small packages. That said, we at Paramount Ford feel the aforementioned adage could very well be the mission statement of the 2016 Ford Focus RS, the American automaker's all-new hot hatchback. With some massive muscle belying its relatively pint-sized proportions, the Focus RS is no doubt a contradiction of the most thrilling kind.

Enough small talk, though; let's get to the good stuff. Click "play" on the clip below to witness this amazing auto in action:

So about that "massive muscle" we alluded to earlier...

It comes courtesy of a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine which, in turn, is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission. They labor in lockstep to dish out a downright dazzling 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Standard fare also includes an advanced all-wheel-drive system, a feature that's sure to bolster the Focus RS's four-season usability.

A racetrack-ready ride that can double as a grocery-getter? Now, that's an idea we can get behind.

For more information about this tenacious transport, or to take the wheel of one, we invite you to swing by our Valdese, NC showroom. Our seasoned staff is available to address your every question regarding the Focus RS, or any other Ford model throughout the current catalog.
