Focus RS Brochure

Visionary. Ingenious. Remarkable.
Every car bears his signature.
Fierce. Elemental.
Ford Focus RS sets the benchmark
for driver exhilaration. The specially
engineered 2.3-litre engine and
innovative all-wheel drive system,
deliver more responsive power with
superior traction and agility. Designed to
maximise your experience of road and
track, the Ford Focus RS delivers the
greatest satisfaction to drivers serious
about performance.

Full throttle over crests with slight

the RS. The car’s aerodynamics and
advanced AWD are designed to keep
it clamped to the track, even in the
wettest conditions.
The jump here can utilise all
suspension movement, rendering
some cars momentarily undisciplined
upon landing. But the advanced,
race-inspired, stiffened Tenneco
suspension fitted to the RS will
help you to keep the car under your
tightest supervision.
Developed by the Ford Performance
team and powered by Ford’s remarkable
EcoBoost technology, the all-new Ford
Focus RS achieves uncompromising
power with impressive efficiency on the

A slick race-inspired 6-speed gearbox
allows you to keep the RS at optimum
torque and power points, all the way

The high-performing character of RS
is reflected throughout the car. A new
flat-bottomed, leather-trimmed steering
wheel enhances your performance
driving experience. While the new
signature RS Recaro seats, in partialleather, form the centrepiece of the
RS cockpit. (Unique Nitrous Blue

The new 2.3-litre Ford EcoBoost
engine for RS has been specially
engineered for high performance. Its
low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger
with intercooler and high-capacity
compressor, allows for greater airflow
and charge density. Together with
an integrated exhaust manifold
that maximises pulse energy to the
turbine, the engine delivers improved
emissions and fuel efficiency while
increasing power output to 350 PS.
AWD torque vectoring
Provides superior traction for
challenging conditions. A twin rear
clutch vectoring system diverts up to
100% of rear drive torque to a single
wheel during cornering if required.
This produces greater traction while
virtually eliminating understeer.
Four active drive modes
Launch control
Performance shift light
Tailor your driving experience with a
selection of drive modes, including
Normal and Sport as road settings, or
Track and Drift for circuit driving.
Developed for track driving, launch
control lifts the torque limit in first
gear, providing optimal traction and
vehicle acceleration.
A flashing RS symbol helps you
to optimise vehicle acceleration.
Located within the rev gauge, the
shift light indicates optimal up-shift
performance-points and rev limits for
each gear.

***In 4th gear. ØFord test figures. ØØThe declared Fuel/Energy Consumptions, CO2 emissions and electric range are
measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of the European Regulations (EC) 715/2007 and
(EC) 692/2008 as last amended. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are specified for a vehicle variant and not for
a single car. The applied standard test procedure enables comparison between different vehicle types and different
manufacturers. In addition to the fuel efficiency of a car, driving behaviour as well as other non-technical factors play a
role in determining a car's fuel/energy consumption, CO2 emissions and electric range. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas
responsible for global warming. A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car
models is available at any point of sale free of charge or can be downloaded from

should assume that it will be at extra cost to the base vehicle, unless specifically stated to the contrary. All models and colour combinations are subject to availability. Note. Some images portrayed are of a pre-production model and/or are computer

The Government fuel figures do not express or imply any guarantee of the fuel consumption of any particular vehicle. The vehicles themselves have not been tested and there are inevitably differences between individual vehicles of the same model.
In addition, a vehicle may incorporate particular modifications. Furthermore, the driver's style and road and traffic conditions, as well as the extent to which the vehicle has been driven and the standard of maintenance, will affect its fuel consumption.
Insurance groups are only as recommended by the Association of British Insurers. You should always consult your insurance adviser for confirmation.
Fuel, Performance and emissions. The fuel economy figures quoted in this brochure are achieved by following strict EU governed test procedures and are specifically designed to enable customers to compare vehicles from all manufacturers on a likefor-like basis. Fuel consumption is directly affected by the length of the journey; number of passengers and amount of luggage carried; individual driving style; road and traffic conditions; weather conditions; vehicle age, mileage, condition and standard
of maintenance; use of vehicle features such as air conditioning; and any modifications to the vehicle such as the addition of a roof rack. Your fuel economy will vary based on these and other factors and, for these reasons, many drivers may not achieve
the EU fuel economy figures (below) in day-to-day driving, although the vehicle is technically capable of doing so.
