There is a difference between sport and performance.

The 3.0L Duratec made a 240HP/223TQ. Making that a 9.5% increase in HP that is pretty sad for a "performance" verison. Not to mention that generation fusion has a slush box automatic transmission meaning less wheel horsepower.

Now on the other hand the Focus ST is a 57% increase in HP compared to the base and Fiesta ST is a 60% increase in HP compared to the base. They both have six speed manual transmission.....
