2017 Ford Focus RS is One High-Octane Hot Hatch

If ever there were a hot hatchback that could render us here at Butler County Ford straight-up speechless, our esteemed American automaker's -- the 2017 Focus RS -- would have to be it.

Wondering why it is we feel as we do?

Well, then, the clip below has your name on it. Ride out with AutoGuide.com Road Test Editor Dan Ilika to learn of the Focus RS's finest features:

Simultaneously a beauty and a beast, the Focus RS's 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is downright divine.

Served up standard with a quick-shifting six-speed manual gearbox and all-wheel drive, the hatchback generates a herculean 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

And yet, for all its feistiness, the Focus RS has a frugal side, too, as it's expected to achieve 22 mpg combined (19 city/26 highway).

Nonetheless, we still wonder: how might you mesh with this mind-bending machine? To find out, be sure to pop on by our Butler, PA facility. We'd be delighted to arrange a test drive in the Focus RS, or any other Ford model that's aroused your intrigue.
