16. Ford Focus RS
Under the hood of the new Focus RS, there is a 2.3-liter turbocharged unit sending 345 HP to all four wheels. And that’s what makes the Focus RS a capable hot hatch beast. The performance is incredible, too. To get from 0 to 60 mph takes only 4.7 seconds and its top speed is 165 mph. But that kind of performance deserves special packaging. So the Focus RS has a unique front spoiler, bulged fenders, and side skirts.
Simply looking at this furious compact will tell you this is a genuinely fast Ford. However, if you are in the market for the fast, brutally capable Ford Focus RS, you should hurry. Ford plans to end its production run this year, so you should buy the Focus while you still can. However, if you can’t afford its $37,000 MSRP, the good news is, this model will only become more affordable as time passes.
