Tailor your experience

The Focus ST delivers the ultimate Focus driving experience. Available with Selectable Drive Modes, including Normal, Sport, and Track, you can seamlessly change your Focus from a refined tourer to an exhilarating performance car. The precision-tuned chassis has been combined with Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD), which continuously adjusts suspension settings to ensure outstanding ride quality and driving dynamics, whatever the conditions. This is a Focus that’s built for the road and born for the track.

Fine-tune your driving experience

The Focus ST is available with four Selectable Drive Modes: Slippery, Normal, Sport and TrackTooltip. Each setting fine-tunes the hot hatch's performance by modifying engine mapping, throttle position, brake pedal and steering response. This is combined with Enhanced Torque Vectoring, Electronic Stability Control, and a performance-tuned chassis, for optimal handling whether you’re driving on the motorway or enjoying a day on the track.

Outstanding ride quality

The new Focus ST comes armed Ford’s sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping technologyTooltip. This smart system continuously monitors vehicle suspension. It then adjusts individual damping responses to deliver enhanced comfort and outstanding driving dynamics. According to the individual drive mode you have selected, the system will fine-tune individual damper settings to optimise your chosen drive mode.
