New Ford Focus ST estate revealed


Ford has released the first images of the new Focus ST in load-lugging estate form ahead of orders opening in the summer.

Like the hatchback, the ST estate will be available in both diesel and petrol forms, with the former starting from £30,595 and the latter from £33,095 – £1100 more than the hatch. It rivals the Skoda Octavia vRS estate and Seat Leon Cupra ST

The diesel is a 2.0-litre EcoBlue unit with 187bhp and 295lb ft of torque, while the petrol makes use of a new 2.3-litre turbocharged engine putting out 276bhp and 310lb ft. The oil-burner comes exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox, while buyers of the petrol also have the choice of a seven-speed automatic.

Ford hasn’t revealed performance figures yet, but expect a slight decrease in acceleration times compared with the equivalent Focus ST hatchback. The same applies to fuel economy figures, on account of an expected weight increase of around 30kg.
