2013 Ford Focus ST

Compact cars are on the rise. Whether their popularity has been boosted by the current economic situation or an increasing environmental awareness among consumers, compact cars are in higher demand in Canada in 2012 than they have been for the past decade. Compact cars offer better fuel efficiency and lower running costs than their larger cousins. But choosing a compact car does not mean compromising on performance, as the 2013 Ford Focus ST clearly demonstrates.
Ford is recognising that many consumers are making a shift away from larger models. They are taking the opportunity to introduce a revamped Ford Focus later in the summer of 2012. A finalist in the North American Car of the Year, the 2013 Ford Focus ST is fitted with a 2.0 litre engine that provides drivers with 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Not only is the 2013 Ford Focus ST a joy to drive, it also looks the part. From the outside, this sporty car shouts performance.

When you slip behind the wheel of the 2013 Ford Focus ST for a test drive, you will not be disappointed. From the moment you start the engine and put your foot down on the accelerator, you can hear the power. The unique sound is down to Ford’s clever sound symposer. Fitted in the exhaust of the 2013 Ford Focus ST, this nifty little gadget amplifies the low-frequency throaty roar that drivers associate with sporty vehicles. The sound symposer isolates the desired sounds based on a range of driver inputs, including pressure on the accelerator, engine speed and gear selection. As the car accelerates, the sounds in the 200 to 450 Hz are emphasised. However, when the 2013 Ford Focus ST is cruising along the open road, the low-frequency sounds are dampened to reflect the steadier speed.
