Great Review On The 2013 Focus ST

Great review of the ST with the 202A package, ST3, and comparison to two other cars, Mazdaspeed3 and GTI.

The ST3 came out on top! This just hit on October 3rd.

What are your thoughts? Does this article sway any opinions?

Yeah it was a good article. I had to buy the magazine when I saw the ST on the cover.

they certainly are complimentary. however, the regular focus is on the car ansd driver ten best list. i am mainly interested in appearance, so an se well equipped would make me very happy, and it is ten grand cheaper. right now local dealer has one for 18200. 1000 cash back and i have a 750 off postcard. i am considering going today.

Do It!!! I'd personally take a 2012 SE Sport if you can find one...

The non-ST Focus I looked at was 24K with the same options - leather, Sony/Sync/TouchMyFord, and other stuff my ST has for about 29K, so that's only about 5K difference. You're right though, no incentives on the ST as it is a limited production specialty car. Still, after driving a regular focus with 5 speed, I thought it would require too much a advanced planning for pulling out, passing and so on, plus it's not nearly as fun.

I really considered an ST before we bought our SE but luckily I came across an '11 STI w/3800 miles for $32k about a month before I was seriously considering an ST. The ST is still one sharp car but I'm happy to have the SE as a daily driver and don't need two trouble making cars.
