Take a look at the Ford Focus ST WAGON with 608L of boot space


Ford has just released first images of their Ford Focus ST in the wagon body style. The front-wheel drive hot hatch just got even more practical with a larger boot capacity, giving buyers a more versatile yet dynamic option in the wagon segment.

Like its hatchback twin, the Focus ST wagon can be had with the 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol or the 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbodiesel. The latter is paired exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission while the EcoBoost mill offers the option for a 7-speed automatic.

Century sprint on the petrol-powered Focus ST wagon takes 5.8 seconds, just 0.1 seconds off the hatchback while top speed is similar between the two at 250 km/h. It’s the same case for the oil burner, with the wagon taking 7.7 seconds to the 100 km/h mark from standstill and a top speed registered at 220 km/h.

In the wagon, you get 608 litres of boot space with the rear seats up and expandable to 1,653 litres – that is significantly more spacious than the hatchback’s 375 litres. The extra space will definitely come in handy for long weekend outings or couples with a growing family.

That’s not to say the Focus ST wagon has gone all soft, features such as electronic limited-slip differential, rev-matching, Continuous Controlled Damping (CCD), Electronic Sound Enhancement (ESE) and selectable Drive Modes found on the hatchback are also available in the wagon.

He believes that the perfect remedy to Monday blues is a mixture of 4 wheels, clear roads and a pinch of twisty tarmac. A hot hatch is the icing on the cake.
