Ford is currently enjoying a very good sales result in the hot hatch segment. Having two different versions of the Focus ST and one small but mighty Fiesta, The Blue Oval won Europeans hearts.

Currently, Ford Focus ST sales have leapt by 270 per cent since the introduction of new petrol and diesel powertrains.

And we all know UK is one of the most important market when it comes to fast compact cars. No wonder almost 6,700 diesel and petrol Focus STs have been sold in the UK so far this year, compared with 2,460 for the whole of last year.

Demand in Britain is evenly split between the two engine options, with 45 per cent choosing the new 185 hp diesel Focus ST and 55 per cent selecting the 250 hp EcoBoost petrol variant.

The UK’s appetite for Focus ST, with the ST 170 in 2002 has driven sales beyond 50,000.

The results will be even better. Ford is further expanding the Focus ST powertrain line-up to offer a six-speed dual-clutch PowerShift transmission with the diesel engine, available to order now for delivery in early 2016.

The new Focus ST diesel PowerShift model will be Ford’s fastest accelerating diesel car ever, targetting 0-62mph in 7.7sec – 0.4sec quicker than the manual variant – and delivering CO2 emissions of 119g/km and combined fuel economy of up to 61.4 mpg.
