Fans of the Ford Focus sedan have adored the vehicle’s hatchback body style for many years. When Ford began to see demand for a high-performance version of the Focus hatchback, they delivered with the introduction of the Ford Focus RS in 2016. Equipped with a turbocharged engine and other sporty features, the Ford Focus RS remains a popular option for those in the market for a sleek hatchback with power behind the wheel.

2016-Present (First Generation)

The Ford Focus RS is still in its first generation of production, as the vehicle was only introduced in 2016. Since then, the Focus RS has not seen much in the way of changes. Specifically, the Ford Focus RS was designed based on the traditional hatchback styling of the original Ford Focus, which comes in various trims and options itself (including the Ford Focus ST, Ford Focus Electric, Ford Focus Active, Ford Focus Titanium, Ford Focus Wagon, Ford Focus Sport, and Ford Focus Hybrid). Its turbocharged engine is also based on that of the Ford Mustang, providing more power behind the wheel than any previous Focus model in existence.

When it comes to the Ford Focus engine, the 2016 Ford Focus RS, 2017 Ford Focus RS and the 2018 Ford Focus RS all come with a standard 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine at 350 horsepower. Also standard is a manual transmission and all-wheel drive.

In terms of Ford Focus mpg, the 2017 RS gets an estimated 22 mpg combined (19 city and 25 highway), compared to the 2017 Ford Focus ST with 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine at an estimated 25 mpg combined (22 city and 30 highway). There aren’t many changes between the 2016, 2017, and 2018 model years. In fact, between 2016 and 2017, the Ford Focus RS remains completely unchanged. For the 2018 model year, however, the Focus RS sees a few changes and upgrades, including a standard navigation system and Recaro front seats. The 2018 Ford Focus RS also gets forged 19-inch wheels and a mechanical front limited-slip differential.

2016-2018 Trims and Configurations

Reviews for Ford Focus

4.2 out of 5(740 reviews)

Stylish economical smaller car with larger car comfort and pep.

Based on the reviews this is the car that I chose in my price range. I wanted a car safe enough to transport myself, family, friends or grandchildren and yet with some of the economy of a smaller car. It gets many favorably comments on it's style as well.

Fun, sporty, and loaded.

This car is cozy and comfortable. I'm 6'1" and I was worried about interior room before I test drove it. Even with the sunroof and spiky hair, headroom isn't an issue (lower the seat when you test drive it!) The features on the Titanium are great. The smart key works flawlessly. The navigation is a big plus and I use it often when traveling. The interior of the car is high quality.

Fun to drive.

This car is a lot of fun to drive. I never really considered buying a Ford (I've owned mostly Hondas in the past), but I needed 4 doors. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Civic SI Hatchback. I loved that car. The Focus handles very well, and goes fast when you want it to. The additional gauges on the dashboard seem a bit unnecessary and are a little distracting.
