Ford to launch new 250PS Focus ST

The hotly-anticipated Ford Focus ST will launch on June 21 with on-the-road prices starting at £21,995.

The exciting new 250PS hatchback will be powered by a direct-injection 2.0-litre, all-alloy, turbocharged, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine and returns 20 per cent better carbon emissions than its predecessor of 169g/km along with an impressive 39.2mpg fuel economy.

The Focus ST will be available both as a hatchback and as an estate, so drivers can rest assured that practicality will not compromise style of performance with both options offering high levels of comfort and safety features as standard.

With drivers soon able to get behind the wheel of the powerful new Focus,car insurance is a must.

The car boasts unique suspension, non-linear variable-ratio steering and performance brakes which have all been specifically tuned while aspects of the original Ford Focus ST Concept have been brought to production.

Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain managing director said: "Ever since the arrival of the legendary GT40, Britain has become the spiritual home for performance Fords - and demand from UK enthusiast customers has always been strong.

"This latest Focus ST is a global car that will excite customers around the world - but especially those in Britain."
