Expert Rating

Not Available
23 City / 32 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 Ford Focus ST OVERVIEW

After Ford axed the SVT in 2005, its U.S. market went without a performance version of the compact Focus until the ST debuted in 2013. As we head into the 2015 model year, the entire Focus lineup -- the ST included -- has received a refresh and host of updates.

What's New for 2015

The most striking changes for the 2015 model year are updates to the ST's front and rear fascias. Its nose receives a new set of slimmer, rectangular headlights and a more sculpted hood. The back end gets a revised bumper.

Other changes include standard HID headlights on the ST2 and ST3 trims, new standard wheels, one new color named Magnetic Metallic, new racing stripes with matching mirror caps, an updated center stack with updated climate controls, additional center console storage, a new flat-bottom steering wheel, and a standard rearview camera.

New optional items are also available and they include a heated steering wheel and an eight-way power driver’s seat.

Choosing Your Focus ST

There are not many choices to make when initially selecting your Focus ST. There is only one drivetrain option, and that includes a 2-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder that puts out 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This engine mates exclusively to a six-cog manual transmission that delivers power to the front wheels.

With the engine and transmission options so limited, the options you have as a buyer are its three trim levels:


The ST1 trim level is the base range for the Focus ST. Despite being a base model, it comes pretty well equipped with features like 18-inch wheels, power-folding mirrors, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system, a rear-view camera, two-tone sports seats, and a rear spoiler. In this base setup, the ST runs $23,495. There are a slew of options available for the ST1 trim including items like an exterior stripe, fog lights, moonroof, ambient lighting, and navigation. All options are à la carte -- Ford doesn't bundle any options into packages for the ST.


Moving into the ST2 trim level raises the base price to $26,935 and adds premium features like dual-zone climate control, HID headlights, HD radio, and partial-leather Recaro seats. Like the ST1, there are lots of options for this trim, but no packages.


The ST3 trim tops the range at $28,625 and comes with heated mirrors, navigation, an overhead console, and full-leather Recaro sports seats. Just like the other two trims, you can choose from a menu of individual options.

CarsDirect Tip

Like the Focus ST models that came before it, this car is a steal in its base format. At just $23.495, it's our pick of the lineup. Added features do little to make the performance-oriented Focus ST a better car unless you just can’t live without leather and a GPS.
