It’s essential that a car as powerful as the Focus ST is equipped with the latest in driver assistance and safety technology.
With Ford SYNC® voice control, you can control your music and make and take calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. SYNC® will even read out loud the text messages sent to your mobile. Which means you can focus all your attention on just...driving. SYNC®3 comes standard with two USB ports and an easy –to navigate eight-inch touchscreen. SYNC®3 lets you use voice control for your phone, music and climate settings.
You don’t need to have the key in your hand to start the Focus ST, or even unlock it. As long as you have your key fob with you, your car will unlock. Once you're inside simply put your foot on the brake, press the start button and go.
The new FOCUS Bi-Xenon headlamps have been designed to be as functional as they are beautiful. This intelligent headlamp system detects different road conditions and selects the appropriate beam pattern for enhanced illumination. And to help you see more in tight bends, the static cornering headlamp feature illuminates the inside of a corner when you turn the steering wheel into the direction of turn.
The new Focus ST has been developed to satisfy enthusiasts who demand an exhilarating driving experience. The enhancements to powertrain, suspension, steering and electronic control systems engineered by the Ford Performance Team deliver a sophisticated balance of uncompromising performance, dynamic agility and refinement.
The Focus ST has a cluster of three additional gauges at the top of the instrument panel. They enable you to monitor the engine more precisely, showing the Turbo boost up to 1.8 Bar, the oil temperature and oil pressure.
With the Active Grille Shutter system, the front grille vent stays open to cool the engine when you're driving slowly, but automatically closes when you pick up speed. The closed position improves aerodynamics, which also increases fuel economy.
Enhanced Torque Vectoring Control (eTVC) offers the control and agility of a state-of-the-art Torque Vectoring Control system and more. This advanced technology reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. It repeatedly balances the amount of power and braking delivered to each of the two front wheels to maximise grip and sharpen handling, powering you around corners and over undulations in the road.
The Focus ST's front and rear suspensions have both been stiffened, delivering outstanding agility and improved grip around corners. The handling feels ultra-sharp and precise, but without compromising comfort. All in all, you'll enjoy a fun, exciting drive, while remaining in absolute control of the car.
From your position in the driver's seat, you can fully enjoy the thrilling sound of the Focus ST's engine. That's because it has a specially tuned sound symposer, which increases the sound you hear in the exhaust pipes when you accelerate hard. The sound level is controlled so you'll hear a sporty engine noise when you put your foot down, but enjoy a quite cabin the rest of the time.
Awarded the NCAP 5-star rating, the Focus ST’s advanced Intelligent Protection System (IPS) uses a range of sophisticated technologies that are designed to help keep you protected, including an ultrahigh-strength steel safety cage, an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), as well as front and curtain airbags.
Ford-exclusive MyKey technology enables owners to programme a key– usually for younger drivers – that restricts the top speed of the Focus ST, reduces the maximum volume of audio system, and even disables the audio system altogether if the driver and passengers are not using seatbelts. It can also prevent the driver from deactivating safety technologies such as the electronic stability programme (ESP), which can help mitigate or prevent collisions.
You don’t need to switch on the wipers as soon as it starts raining; windscreen wipers are activated automatically when it begins to rain. These are some of the safety measures when driving on the road.
With excellent shoulder and torso support, the world famous RECARO® seats are ergonomically designed for the high-performance driver.
With racing-inspired aluminium pedals and the engine’s throaty acoustic piped into the cabin, the ST is as sporty inside as out.
Stay on top of your game with this striking instrument console, featuring red needle pointers and sport gauges monitoring turbo boost, oil pressure and oil temperature.
Everything about the Focus ST's exterior gives visual clues about its performance-including its oversized front grille, unique side skirts, strikingly shaped central dual exhaust, exclusive ST real spoiler and red brake callipers(optional).
