I’m honestly in love with the car. It has a lot of great features for the affordable price. I would probably just compare it to the ford fusion.

Incredible value for the money. For 50-75% the price as most other performance vehicles, the Focus ST is the best bang for your buck you’ll find. You get very similar performance with a Recaro leather interior, Apple CarPlay with Ford’s latest and greatest Sync 3 system, carbon fiber trim and accents, flawless suspension and transmission, along with incredible reliability, the Focus ST checks all the boxes you look for in a car. I had a 2016 Focus ST from 20-90k miles before totaling it in a rough crash and never had a single issue with it, completely solid. I’ve driven the 2015 VW GTI, 2017 Subaru WRX STI, 2017 Golf R, 2019 Mini Cooper JCW, 2018 Civic Type R, and none of them came even close to putting as big of a smile on my face as the ST, except for the Type R. In my opinion the Type R is a little bit overpriced and lacks heavily in the same build quality and interior luxury as the Focus ST with the ST3 package. The ST was a no brainer. With some snow tires and experience behind the wheel, along with a light foot, it’s not bad in the snow either. But for the inexperienced driver you might want to look for something AWD like the STI or Golf R if you can afford those. 9/10 on the 2017 Focus ST (ST3 package) for me, only thing it could use is a bit more power but that’s what mods are for!!! Time for a $3k big turbo kit and 450 hp.

Overall:

The car looked really good and had all the options I wanted. Unfortunately, the Ford Focus’s transmission was badly engineered. Ford entered into an agreement to compensate owners of 2011-2016 models. Although the 2017 and 2018 models had the same issues, owners were were not included. This was too large of an obstacle.

Front Seats Ranked 2017 Ford Focus Titanium worse.
"The front seats are more like racing buckets on the ST while the regular trims have a little support but not as much "
Would Buy Ranked 2017 Ford Focus Titanium worse.
"Gear box is just perfect every gear slots into place and the clutch is not too stiff but not too spongy its just right perfect for just everyday driving not for racing the RS is really for racing and the clutch proves it very very firm competition style "
