Ford wasn’t joking when they revealed that they want the all-new Focus RS to be the fastest hatchback in the world. This explains why Ford is daring enough to offer the Focus RS the 2.3L EcoBoost turbo-4 engine.

The Mustang-sourced powertrain basically enable the Focus RS to develop up to 350hp and 350ft-lbs of torque. The figures are huge especially when compared to segment rivals like the Honda Civic Type-R and the Volkswagen Golf R.

Even when racing with the duo, the Focus RS felt no challenge at all as it leaves behind a huge gap. This is evident in a drag challenge conducted by CarWow and it involves the Focus RS, Civic Type-R and Volkswagen Golf R.
