PREMIER Automobiles Sdn Bhd (PASB) had officially launched the new Ford Focus ST a week ago, we had a closer look and tested the car along road of Brunei.
I heard people talking about why the new ST lost a cylinder and replaced by a 2.0 litre four cylinder powered with a turbo called Ecoboost . Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
When we drove the car on the highway, first thing that we noticed was the immerse power. With an upgrade of 30 horsepower more from the previous model was thrilling.
As the engine reached 2500rpm, the torque felt on the steering and pull easily to 120km/h.
As we drove the ST, it reminds you and reminded me how car was fun, the ST only available with manual 6 speed transmission and we miss those moments shifting the gears with a stick. Nowadays most cars are influence by F1 technology most of it now installed with pedal shift
The new Ford ST reminded me the old days of Subaru WRX and that was not enough with the new exhaust system, the exhaust note total up the package of a racing breed.
