This is an exceptional car which is as close to a rally car as the Subaru Impreza Turbo and Evo from Mitsubishi. The only thing some people would claim it lacks is 4 wheel drive, it instead uses a rally car style front differential to send power to the front wheels. This means the Focus can carry great grip around corners and even in the wet. The performance is fantastic with awesome pull in all 5 gears and 212 bhp. I decided to order one after seeing it on Top gear (the review wasn't great on top gear, but what do you expect from Clarkson), the real test showed when it beat the Volkswagen Golf R32 around the track. I think the car looks awesome and the interior seems about what you would expect from a £20,000 car. Admittedly I am a big RS fan but I think it you want a good test of your driving ability and performance to boot, you can only pick the Focus RS.
