Auto Express Verdict gives 5 Stars

Offering increased bite to the front end and more stability under braking, the new Ford Focus RS edition won over the Auto Express review team. At home on the track or road, the Ford Focus RS Edition differential was found to be even more effective on tight and twisty roads, wet or dry, though it has to be said that it really only comes into play when you're exploring the outer envelope of the Focus RS's abilities.”

In awarding the Ford Focus RS 2017 edition the maximum 5 stars, the leading motoring publication commented “The Ford Focus RS had already proven to be worthy of the mega hatch tag, thanks to its balance of power, agility and value. But Ford Performance reckons that some buyers want even more from their five-door family car. The Focus RS Edition bundles a few choice extras with a new look and limited slip differential – but with only a tiny price hike. With no tangible downside, it makes a good car even better.”
