If you are looking to buy a sporty, small car that’s great for daily driving, consider the 2017 Ford Focus RS. This mini racer is more powerful than its little brother - the ST. It also has an emergency crash-notification feature that automatically calls 911 in the event of an accident. This allows you to rest easy knowing that help will be on the way shortly.
Powered by an aggressive turbocharged four-cylinder engine, this model produces 350 hp. Equipped with a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, it gets 22 mpg combined (19 city/25 highway). Adjustable suspension dampers and upgraded brakes provide a smooth and quiet ride.
The RS includes 19-inch alloy wheels with summer tires and automatic xenon headlights for a sleek appearance. The leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel can be moved to suit your height, and dual-zone climate control keeps everyone at a comfortable temperature.
According to Edmunds, the Sync3 interface is displayed on an 8-in touchscreen and operates with Bluetooth. You can make calls hands-free and listen to your favorite songs.
