2015 Ford Focus ST Overview
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.

This engine mates exclusively to a six-cog manual transmission that delivers power to the front wheels.

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.
