2016 Ford Focus RS Rendered as Estate

An estate variant of the Ford Focus RS has never been made available, but considering the Ford Focus ST is available as an estate, X-Tomi Design has decided to render the just released 2016 Focus RS as an estate and it certainly looks promising.

Alongside the adoption of the estate body style which adopts a lengthened roof and new tailgate design, the Ford Focus RS Estate rendered also utilises different taillights.

Powering the 2016 Ford Focus is a new engine based on the new Mustang’s all-aluminium four-cylinder 2.3-litre engine but substantially uprated with power boosted by a new low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger with larger compressor plus much bigger intercooler. Additionally, it features a less restrictive intake and big-bore high performance exhaust with electronic tailpipe valve to cut back pressure and enhance the noise with the distinctive burbles, pops and crackles that are a RS signature. All told, it will deliver over 320 hp.

Key to putting down the power is the new Ford Performance All-Wheel-Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring combining outstanding traction and grip with unmatched agility and cornering speed, based on twin electronically-controlled clutch packs each side of the rear drive unit. These manage the car’s front/rear torque split, and also can control the side-to-side torque distribution on the rear axle.

The AWD system has been tuned for exceptional grip – with lateral acceleration exceeding 1g – and class-leading cornering speed and acceleration out of a bend and the ability to achieve controlled oversteer drifts at the track. Dave Pericak, director, Global Ford Performance, said: “We have ripped up the rulebook which says that AWD hatchbacks cannot be fun to drive, and have created a car which will surprise and reward in equal measure.”
