After the debut of the Ford Focus ST hatch, Focus ST Estate has the same performance with it but with a greater baggage.
From the stitch point of view, the changes in the back are very sharp. There is a haven in the front. The rear design is more or less like the ST-Line models, but there are two two-way discharge pipes.
At the front, the Estate has a lattice in the shape of a hatchet. It is 10 mm lower than the rest of the Focus range, with 20% more durable rear shock absorber and 13% rear.
The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S wheels and the electronically limited differential complete chassis changes.
Under the hood, there are two choices for the engine. The performance fans have the 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, which produces 276 horsepower – 29 horsepower more than the outgoing model – and 420 Nm of rotating power.
The extra weight of the Estate compared to the hatch affects the time to reach the acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5.8 seconds.
A diesel engine has 187 horsepower and 360 Nm of rotating power is 2.0-liter and is the most powerful diesel engine ever set on a Focus car. Speeds up to 0-100 km/h for 7.7 seconds.
The petrol unit is available with six-speed manual transmission, or with seven-speed automatic transmission. The diesel version is only available with manual.
The Ford Focus ST Estate will have a $39,140 initial price for the diesel model and $42,335 for the petrol model when it comes out in the summer. Each is $1,400 more expensive than hatch-style equivalents.
