    The Focus will have a fight on its hands to become the top fwd. The Renaultsport Megane R26.R is the king, and won't go down easily.

    Whatever you do don't sell it in the states. No one buys 300hp awd vehicles around these parts.


    Edit: FWD? Yeah, don't sell it here.

    What's really cool is that you can go out and get a new Chevy Cobalt SS and get 95% of the performance in a less compromised car for far less money. :bowdown:

    :werd;

    But I think the interior and exterior of this Focus are way better, and that alone could make it worth buying.

    Chassis yes, engine no.

    The Focus and Volvo C30 use this 2.5L 5cyl turbo. The Mazdaspeed 3 uses a 2.3L 4cyl turbo w/direct injection. All three are platform mates.

    You could pick up the Volvo and basically have the Focus ST. :dunno:

    What did they say?

    "OMGFTWBBQ, this is fast, but it needed backseat removal, a rear cage and Pilot Sport 2s/Toyo 888s to beat the Cobalt SS?" :o
