With the Ford Focus 2019 already on sale, it was only a matter of time before sport variants appeared, such as the ST in question. A version that is present in the four generations of the compact of the signature of the oval and which, again, comes to be faced with consolidated models such as the Volkswagen Golf GTI, the Renault Mégane RS or the Peugeot 308 GTi.
In any case, it should be remembered that this model will not be as monstrous as the future Focus RS, which is expected to reach 400 hp. The Ford Focus ST will be below and will not be as spectacular or fast, but it will have an equally ambitious approach: being very fast and at the same time being usable on a daily basis.
Fat, but do not exaggerate
The recreation, conceived by the specialists in digitally retouching images from Motor1.com, comes to life in the orange color that was already visible in its predecessors. The body, with five doors, is similar to the ST Line variants, but contains design elements that give it a more dynamic personality. For example, a bumper with a lower air intake of larger size or a front grille with the ST logo, black rear-view mirrors or 18-inch alloy wheels.
Otherwise it seems that there will be major developments in the cabin, except for some sports seats signed by Recaro, with the inscription ST embroidered.
Ford Focus ST 2019: with the engine of the Ford Mustang
In the mechanical section, every time the rumor gets more weight, the Focus ST will resort to the mechanical turbocharged engine of 2.3 liters and four cylinders, of the Ford Mustang, with a power close to the 290 CV. On the other hand, the presence of a diesel cyclopropeller in this generation seems unlikely.
What is known is that this sport will be available in compact form with a manual gearbox, six-speed gearbox or an automatic transmission with torque converter, eight relations.
Do not forget that the Ford Focus ST 2019 will be a compact front-wheel drive and given the amount of power it has to transfer to the ground, it almost seems certain that it will have a self-braking effect. In this way, the total traction would be reserved for his older brother, the RS.
For the rest, it is expected that the new compact will appear to dealers this summer and that, on the Spanish market, the starting price will be less than 30,000 euros.
