2017 Ford Focus RS is So Much More than Some Humdrum Hatch

Far and away one of the most intriguing rides on the roster here at Hoffman Auto Group, the 2017 Ford Focus RS is a hot hatchback with a propensity for high-octane performance.

It also just so happens to be a favorite of AutoGuide.com Road Test Editor Dan Ilika.

What does he like best? Check the clip below to find out:

No doubt its main attraction, the Focus RS's turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine is a beastly brute, indeed.

Syncing with a six-speed manual transmission, the turbo-four turns out a terrific 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. An all-wheel-drive system is served up standard.

And, considering the potency of this powertrain, its EPA-estimated fuel economy rating -- checking in at 22 mpg combined (19 city/25 highway) -- is nothing short of spectacular.

So, what's the delay, loyal reader? The time is now to experience the splendor of this speedster. As such, we invite you to pop by our East Hartford, CT facility, whereupon we'll happily arrange a test drive in the Focus RS, or any other Ford model that's commanded your curiosity.
