The Focus RS has an engine and that engine produces 257 kW, or 350hp. That kind of power in a hot hatch is a lot, but the 2017 Focus RS enters a market where cars like the Mercedes-AMG A45 have 280 kW. The hot-hatch world has gone mad.
And so the RS has a few tricks up its sleeve to make up for the power deficit. A trick all-wheel drive system makes the most of the available grunt and clever driving modes set up the car to be increasingly hardcore, and there's even a drift mode.
