If you’re interested in the increasingly popular hot-hatch segment, consider a pre-owned 2016 Ford Focus ST. An Edmunds review couldn’t stop praising the speedy hatchback, calling it the perfect balance of adrenaline and adaptability. You'll be just as happy taking the Focus ST to the supermarket as when you take it on an amped up highway drive.
True driving enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that this compact four-door is strictly available in manual transmission (as it should be). The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine can crank out a rambunctious 252 horsepower. But you don’t need to be intimidated by all that power, as the Focus ST delivers well-honed handling thanks to sport-tuned underpinnings. You’ll never shy away from a sharp turn again.
Once inside, you can appreciate the luxurious materials that make this feisty Ford a car you can use for everyday driving. The front seats are well supported and make longer car rides comfortable. Upgrade to Ford’s SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system and you’ll enjoy a myriad of top of the line technology features, including navigation, emergency assistance, and device pairing.
If the word racetrack gets your heart racing, head down to Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington to take a used Ford Focus ST for a test drive. You can also check out our complete pre-owned Ford Focus inventory online now.
