Ford Focus RS vs Mustang: Straight-Line Challenge!

By  | 

The Focus RS is the newest performance car from Ford and it has made its mark for being one of the fastest sports hatchbacks in automotive history.

The credits partly belong to the 2.3L 4-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine which can generate 350hp and 350ft-lbs of torque. This particular mill is sourced from the standard Mustang and it allowed the Focus RS to leap into speed rapidly.

So what would happen if the Focus RS is to go on a straight line battle with a V8-powered Mustang? Knowing that the Focus RS runs on AWD, it is obvious that the car will go off the line faster but does this guarantee the Focus RS is the winner in this contest.
