I’ve loved the look of the present generation Fusion sever since I laid eyes on it – when it’s approaching from the opposite direction it looks a lot like an Aston Martin from the front.

When I told my wife I’d booked a Focus ST for a week she asked me why I’d do that when we already drive our own Focus every day… was it any better? Considering its almost 100 hp more than our anaemic 2.0L engine and a whopping 124 additional lbs/ft of torque at a much lower 2,500 rpm instead of 4,600, I’d say it would be well worth taking the time to compare.
