We have exciting news for Ford fans, as the Focus ST hot hatch has received its economy ratings, and they’re quite decent for the power you’re getting. Ford says the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo engine will do 32 mpg highway (7.35 l/100km) with the manual gearbox, which is better than both the Golf GTI and the MazdaSpeed3.
The same engine gets 23 mpg city (10.2 l/100km) for a combined economy of 26 mpg (9.04 l/100km).

“We’re putting the ‘power’ in the power of choice, again,” said Raj Nair, Ford vice president of Engineering for Global Product Development. “This is just one more sidebar in the Jekyll and Hyde Focus ST narrative. This kind of performance combined with these high levels of efficiency was unknown of until we made this car.”

The same engine is available on a number of other cars, including the Fusion, Flex, Explorer, Escape and Taurus.
