Ask and you shall receive.
3 articles.

SVT Focus vs Mini Cooper-S?
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=100466

SVTF, vs Civic Si, vs Beetle Turbo.
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...hotopanel..1.*

SVTF, Sentra SER-V, SRT-4, Speed Protege.
http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...omparison_test

The article that convinced me that the SVTF was indeed worth looking at.
http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/..._test/(page)/1

Since we are on the nostalgia train here is the first article I ever read about the ZX-3 when I was on my first deployment and started looking for a car to get when I got back (ended up getting a 01 ZX-3).
http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...take_road_test
I love the "go slow, have fun".

And just for fun, an old Focus ST, Mazda 3, Mini Cooper-S, Lancer Ralliart, and Scion tC.

Loved this article because they kept dissing the ST because it was inferior to the SVTF in almost every way.

Also as part of Focus history we have the classic V8 Focus vs a Lamborghini Gallardo.
