Ford Focus ST Named Hot Hatch of the Year
Added: 05 November 2019
Just six months after it first went on sale, the Ford Focus ST has been named Hot Hatch of the Year at the 2019 Scottish Car of the Year Awards.
The Focus ST has had a successful year so far, having sold more than 1,200 units since it came to market in June. The award was present by ‘The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers’ Chairman, John Murdoch, who said: "Fast fun and affordable the ST roared its way to the Hot Hatch award. Our members believe it boasts the perfect recipe for its market and is a great drive in a mature package. It is well engineered and its chassis loves being worked hard. The winner is also very practical and great value for money."
The Focus ST builds on the top-class driving dynamics of the fourth generation Focus. Ford’s new C2 architecture is enhanced with unique suspension, braking and powertrain configurations for the most responsive and agile Focus ST driving experience ever.
Its 2.3-litre EcoBoost all-aluminium engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST, using advanced turbocharging technology to deliver 280PS power at 5,500rpm and 420Nm of torque from 3,000rpm to 4,000rpm. It can deliver 0-62mph acceleration in 5.7 seconds for the five-door hatchback.
The Focus ST 2.3-litre EcoBoost delivers up to 35.7mpg fuel efficiency, and 179g/km CO2 emissions, while the 190PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel variant delivers up to 58.8mpg and 125g/km CO2 emissions.
The EcoBlue diesel engine delivers peak power at 3,500rpm and 400Nm of torque between 2,000rpm and 3,000rpm – and 360Nm from 1,500rpm – for immediate and linear acceleration. Acceleration from 0-62mph takes 7.6 seconds for the five-door model.
