(The Ford site isn't as forthcoming with prices as they want you "build" the car you want and then get the price)
I just may need to consider one in a few years when I can afford a used one.
Oh and as far as HP, the Focus is right there with the .:R. The .:R being AWD likely has a little less at the wheels, but should handle better for the same reason.

|Kevastator||Although the GTI has less hp, and isnt the closest competitor to the ST, the ST is a thousand times better vehicle than the GTI lol|

Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin Jr. race Focus ST and GTI through abandoned neighborhood
Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin, Jr. are two of the masters of artistically abusing automobiles, so you know a video with both men in it is going to be a good one. In the fourth installment of the Focus ST Sessions series from Ford, Gittin and Block are given the keys to a 2013 Focus ST and a Volkswagen GTI, and then let loose in an abandoned neighborhood.
While the stunts in this video are nowhere near what either man is capable of performing in their respective racecars, it is essentially a two-minute-long Ford commercial showing the Focus ST's advantages over VW's standard bearer for the hot hatch class. The two cars tear through the deserted streets, allowing the Focus ST to show its strong off-the-line acceleration and slaloming ability through some construction barrels.
