Ford Focus ST â€“ The best sold hot-hatch in Europe
Ford Focus ST – The best sold hot-hatch in Europe
The new Ford Focus ST seems to be very much appreciated by the hot-hatch fans. Even if the offer isn’t very large, Focus ST has managed to become the most sold model.
The sales calculations the Ford representatives leaned on war made for 34 European countries, and it looks like the Focus ST hot-hatch was the bestselling car (as a Ford car parts) in its class during the last three months of 2012. This is good news for Ford, but this is also due to a conjecture.
Ford Focus made it up to 44% of its hot-hatch sales in the period October-December 2012, compared to the 33% for VW Golf GTI and 12% for Renault Megane RS. The results are surprisingly good for VW Golf GTI too, because we are talking about the old series, not about the new Golf 7 GTI, recently launched. The weakest sales results recorded belong to Megane RS. Ford Focus ST is the newest offer of that period, competing with a Golf GTI at the end of its career and a Megane RS that already had its best times. The new Ford Focus ST is equipped with a 2-liter Ecoboost engine, which produces 250 hp and allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
