At a starting MSRP of $24,425 the 2016 Ford Focus ST is one of the most affordable ways to jump into the performance scene. It comes standard with a high-output 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine that gives you 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque to play with.

Not only is the 2016 Ford Focus ST changed from the regular Focus models with its turbocharged engine and additional power, but the Focus ST has changes to the interior of the Focus as well. The standard cloth seats in the Focus are subbed out for a more premium, unique cloth sports seat. Also available is the full-leather RECARO seats in charcoal black, or a partial RECARO leather option, which adds suede inserts. The partial leather seats come in three different colored accents -- Molten Orange, Performance Blue or Smoke Storm -- to add even more style.

It comes with a unique ST sport suspension to aid in its superior handling, and you’ll even get high-performance front and rear brakes. Additional options are also available to make the Focus ST even more of a dream car. Both SYNC 3 and a premium 10-speaker Sony audio system can easily be added, and really increase how nice the interior feels.
