Having said that, anyone driving the 2017 Ford Focus will instantly be aware that it's a car built for speed, not comfort. You'll feel every imperfection on the road, and be glad of it.
The engine is a 2.3 liter inline 4 cylinder workhorse that responsively snaps out aggressive growls on command to turn heads wherever you go. The sole drive train option is an impressive 6-speed that to help you stay in your power band and acheive 19 city/25 highway. It runs an even 350 horsepower to match its 350 foot pounds of torque. That's held in check, only barely, with its four driving modes: normal, sport, track, and drift to match one's mood and grip preference.

The 2017 Ford Focus RS may be a rally car just waiting to be driven, but it's filled with more than it's fair share of modern amenities. It comes standard with an 8" LCD touch screen in the center stack, dual zone electric temperature control, and intelligent access with push button start.
The small packaged race car runs a high definition 10 speaker Sony audio system to pair with it's standard Sirius XM radio, and interactive technology that pairs well with either Apple or Android products. With two smart charging USB ports, it'll be easy to keep both the driver and passenger's phones charged. To keep it safe from the overly curious, it comes standard with a perimeter alarm.
Unfortunately, the RS badged Recaro seats hug the driver tight, which might be a problem for the wide shouldered. They can be upgraded to heated seats, as can the steering wheel. The rear legroom is a little lacking for anyone adult sized. On the other hand the rear seats fold up to stow away larger items.
If one wants to upgrade, there's a winter tires and wheels package. There's also the option of heated side view mirrors, a power moon roof, fog lights and a custom fit car cover. One can also purchase upgraded alloy wheels, or aluminum wheels equipped with Michelin Sport Cup tires.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford Focus RS
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford Focus RS invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
