Impatiently waiting to my hands on a new RS. Always been a Ford man. Currently driving a 2013 Edge Limited. Would love a Mustang but at this point in my life, its just too impractical. The RS fits the speedbug in me and has the all-wheel drive for the winter plus the versatility of the hatchback. Win win I say. :D

Hi Northern, welcome to the forums.

I think you'll find the Mustang and the Focus RS offer VERY different driving experiences. The Focus should be more fun anyway!

I'm not that enticed by the Mustang actually. I think that it is more show than substance. The Focus RS is cool without trying as hard. That's my opinion at least.

Your opinion sounds more substance then show. What substance does the Mustang seem to lack? Because they've never sold Mustangs like this before, people are gobbling them up, especially the Turbo...

Mustangs feel more cumbersome than Focii to drive. The Mustang's outward visibility and driving position are awful. And it feels like a BIG car.


The Focus feels more tossable and easier to hustle. Which makes its power more readily accessible, and a fun driving experience easier to tap into on the street.
