If you are a speed-enthusiast and you take care of your environment, there is no better choice than the upcoming 2020 Ford Focus RS. Namely, the fourth generation of this popular sports hatchback has been on its way to hit the roads as a 2020 model. The most anticipated feature has definitely been its Mustang-like engine combined with a mild-hybrid system that will provide more power and less pollution.
- more efficient
- comes with all-wheel drive
- race-inspired interior.
- no manual transmission
- a bit expensive.
When it comes to exterior of the 2020 Ford Focus RS, no major changes should be expected here, but this high-performance five-door hatchback will definitely look sportier than ever. The fans will have the chance to notice lots of race-inspired styling features, but first of all, the Focus RS should be riding on a brand-new platform. It will also try to save some weight and appear lighter, but its battery and hybrid equipment will make it weight mostly the same. The new Focus RS will show its more muscular hood with a new grille and redesigned LED lighting. The bumpers, roof spoiler and exhaust pipes will add up to that aggressive look as well and this sports beauty should stand on powerful 19-inch alloy wheels. Also, it has been said that we should expect some new body paint options.
The interior of the 2020 Ford Focus RS will be largely race-inspired so the true speed enthusiasts will enjoy their ride even more. They will get Recaro sports seats as well as a flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel. The seats will be comfortable, power-adjustable and supportive, especially at those high speeds. The company will also use some high-quality and lightweight materials inside. The center console will provide an 8.0-inch touch-screen with lots of next-generation features and connectivity options such as navigation system, dual-zone automatic climate control, audio system, USB ports, a rearview camera, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The driver will also get a 4.0-inch information LCD in the instrument cluster.
Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, the 2020 Ford Focus RS should use a 2.3-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder found under the hood of the Ford Mustang. This engine will be combined with a 48V mild hybrid system and it is expected that these will provide the output of more than 400 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque. The CO2 emissions will be largely lowered and the efficiency significantly improved. However, the lovers of manual transmission might face a brand-new dual-clutch automatic that would replace it. This powerful car will come with all-wheel drive system.
