style," said Raj Nair, Ford Group Vice-President, Global Product Development. "Now, with improved dynamics, an updated suspension, new styling and a more sophisticated cabin, we expect the 2015 Focus ST will remain the hottest hatch worldwide."

Ford's 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine uses turbocharging, twin independent variable camshaft timing and high-pressure direct injection to deliver uncompromising performance. Peak output of 252 hp is available at 5,500 rpm, while torque peaks at 270 lb ft at 2,500 rpm.

"The design of the new Focus is stronger and sportier, and that allowed us to make the new ST even more aggressive and dramatic," said Moray Callum, Ford Group Vice-President, Global Design. "The front bumper is deeper, the honeycomb upper grille is higher and more upright, and the lower grille is larger. The deeper rear bumper really emphasizes the width of the car."
