10:20 is enough of a reason to not buy the Ford. Soft rear suspension sounds good on paper. It is not. It leans so much it pulls the inside rear wheel completely off the ground in a fairly normal turn. That s bad in every way possible.
That jump alone deserves a double like!
I don t know what twit you got to drive that day but I consistently hit 0-60 at 5.6 - 5.9 in my Focus which I only paid 22,000 for.
2017 focus ST looks way better than the brx
I’m a HUGE subie fan and still. this thing just looks wrong. I miss the bug eye days
Focus ST is so awesome, just wish it came in AWD. It would be lighter, more maneuverable than the WRX then. Focus RS is AWD but 10,000 dollars more. Tough decision.
Did I just watch a video where a FWD was put up against an AWD? And you expected what? This is not entertainment. This is. Well we don t have anything decent to cover lets do something stupid for the sycophants.
WHERE IS THE HATCHBACK? I have a 02, bought new.
why the fart noises during the wrx canyon run?
A great reliable fun and sexy WRX to a white trash Ford? Pleazzzze!
At 4.41 the rear left wheel comes off the ground int he corner. Dayumn
Ya know, it s really sad, and granted it did get me a little bit, but I kept up with a new WRX on a curvy forest back road in New England.in a stock New Edge Mustang GT. And before you say it, yes, he was trying to shake me.
old vid, old model subie, same warm feeling 😊
Great Comparison! Love the videos from Motortrend. Agree on the looks of the Focus ST, but the WRX can hold the road really well. I owned an older Forester, and that AWD system was so confidence inspiring. I totally want to drive on a road like this someday and jump a car like that!
love my wrx.and my old legacy and my new brz.subies rule!
that was the best ending to a motor trend video I think Ive ever seen
Looks like they almost spun out after landing that jump in the WRX :o Nice Recovery.
