This Ford Focus ST Wagon is the facelifted version of the model that was introduced in 2012. Along with this facelift, Focus ST Wagon (also the hatchback) gets new settings for EPAS power steering, new rear suspension (springs, dampers, bushings), a firmer ride, bigger brakes (available only with 19-inch wheels). The mechanical sound symphoser, with electronically controlled valve, was now replaced by an electronic sound enhancer that fine tunes the natural engine sound via speakers. We also invite you to watch our videos with Ford Focus ST diesel (185 hp) and Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost (125 hp).
