2017 Ford Focus RS – On Track and Street

The Ford Focus RS is, basically, a street legal race car. I drove it around the 4-mile Road American circuit, criss-crossed Chicago’s streets and made a highway run almost to Iowa in search of a little more freedom. For a mere $40K it’ll make your heart pump. If you’re an adrenalin junky, the RS will get you high all day long.

In spite of its four doors, seats for five and large rear hatch opening to a roomy and convenient grocery holder, the RS may just chatter your teeth a bit too much. But it’ll be up to you to decide if you can live with the RS all week so you are alway ready for a weekend outing at a convenient race circuit.

More specifics on the RS, now in its last year, can be found here.
