Aggressive pricing for new Ford Focus ST

The 250hp Ford Focus ST will cost from £21,995 when it hits dealers in June, with the estate version set to cost from £23,095.

Ford's pricing strategy makes it more than £3K cheaper than the £25,330 VW Golf GTI, and £2,840 cheaper than the cheapest Megane Renaultsport.

The three trim levels available are ST1, ST2 and ST3, and 18-inch alloys, keyless start, Bluetooth and DAB radio are standard even on the most basic model, while part or full leather, rain-sensing wipers, and keyless entry are all offered on higher-spec models.

    Hopefully this will bring some prices down across the board. £30k for a VW Golf is crazy money!

    Agreed, "small" cars fetching big car money is just ridiculous at the moment.

    I hope it doesn't weigh the equivalent of a small moon. I'm still hoping all this talk of cars getting lighter will filter down from the supercar manufacturers! smile

    The estate look's nice.
