As the Ford Focus ST was all-new for 2013 the changes for 2014 are minor. There's a Rado Gray Alloy Wheel Package that includes darker argent wheels and red brake calipers, and optional "Focus ST Racing Stripes" to adorn things from front to back.

The Ford Focus ST is all-new for the 2013 model year, and it includes a wide variety of Euro-tuning tricks that set it apart from its more pedestrian Focus brothers. With minor exceptions, it is exactly the same car European Focus ST buyers get.

About Ford Focus ST

The compact-car market is one of the most competitive, and it's the details that make a car a winner. The 2015 Ford Focus hones in on those details with exterior styling that won't look old in 12 months, while its modern interior boasts numerous usability upgrades across trim levels. The 2015 Ford Focus remains available as a 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback, and has a variety of powertrains that span from an efficient 1.0-liter 3-cylinder to the ferocious 252-horsepower Focus ST, and even an all-electric variant in the Focus EV. Though not the least-expensive compact car, the Focus holds its own against the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Nissan Sentra, Toyota Corolla and Mazda Mazda3.

Pros: "Great value, technology is top notch"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Car is great for commuting. Ride is comfortable and handling is tighter than you would expect. Sony entertainment system is incredible and very easy to use. Only downside is the transmission, its a little flaky. I had to have a software update applied to fix the transmission within the first few months. Even now it stutters at times and can be a little jerky. Overall, I would buy it again as it has exceeded my expectations. For the value, you'd be hard pressed to find a better car."

"Even after 32000 miles, track days and a few autox's the car has been fantastic. No major issues, only minor glitch's with SYNC, though after the most recent update it's worked really well. As an overall car for under $30k it's hard to beat for a daily driver that you can still take to the track or autox on the weekends."

"Pro: Great noise upon down-shifting. Good acceleration for the price. Good storage. Good gas mileage when your not driving it like a yabo. The car is everything you need like good gas mileage and pretty good insurance rates if you just say it's a ford focus. Cons: The cup holders aren't in the worst of locations. But if you have a straw in your cup you will hit it with your arm and it will annoy you. If your driver and passenger needs the seats all the way back the back seat riders will need to have tiny legs. Unique qualities. The car comes with anti-torque steer, but it still steers a little so it's subtle and I rather enjoy it because it is a quality of front wheel drive cars. There is some turbo lag but it wont want you to kill the car maker. Definitely would suggest you get this car and have fun with it. Enjoy"
