Think turbocharged, four-wheel-drive cars and it’s hard not to picture rally monsters flying over jumps and sliding through forests millimetres from trees. These days, though, buyers keen for a road-going, boosted, all-paw performance car are spoilt for choice. And, if you’ve got around $50k to spend, three of the best you can buy are the Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI, and Volkswagen Golf R. But which is the best? Well, strap in…
Blowing socks off the world-over since blasting onto the scene in January this year, the 2016 Ford Focus RSis, apparently, the car everybody wants – and, apparently, the car every other car wants to be.
It’s got the style and sound of a road-legal rally car, and it easily comes into this comparison with the highest of expectations.
