2017 Focus RS for sale

The 2017 Focus RS for sale is a weapons-grade compact hatchback with a 350-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission, and a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system designed with rally-car shenanigans in mind. That it’s built upon the workaday Ford Focus might suggest dullness, yet this sport compact’s charisma is cranked up to 11. While the RS lacks the refined demeanor and upscale interior of some of its rivals, the Ford’s racier setup makes it a highly entertaining driver’s tool

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2017 Focus RS for sale is powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four that churns out 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the Focus RS tops all others in its class and is capable of serious speed on any surface. At more than 3400 pounds, the RS isn’t light, but its all-wheel-drive traction, combined with the six-speed manual’s short gearing and crisp engagements, allow it to bolt away from stoplights with ferocity. A standard Drift mode that uncorks the torque-vectoring rear axle lets you blast through corners sideways with the tires smoking. We do not endorse this kind of behavior anywhere but on a track, of course, but the Focus can and will indulge your exhibitionist tendencies if asked. There also are Normal, Sport, and Track drive modes. We won’t call the RS nervous, but it is high strung and rides stiffly, even with its adaptive dampers in the softer of their two settings

Infotainment and Connectivity

The 2017 Focus RS for sale comes standard with the Sync 3 infotainment system and an 8.0-inch touchscreen, which brings bright menus, logical navigation, and ample connectivity. A 10-speaker Sony stereo is the only audio system offered. While Sync 3 does not feature an auxiliary input or Wi-Fi hotspot, it does include Bluetooth and USB inputs, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Navigation and SiriusXM real-time traffic data are optional.
