Ford has united its US and European performance divisions, and the 2012 Focus ST is its first global go-fast vehicle. Thus, it was only normal that, after the car debuted earlier this year at the Frankfurt Auto Show, it had to also visit America.
The hot hatch has now made its North American debut at the LA Auto Show - in hatchback form only, as the station wagon version will only be offered in Europe.

We'll remind you that under the hood we have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which talks to the driver via a six-speed manual, while the communication to the road is established through a sports tuned suspension and a set of 18-inch lightweight alloy rims wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber.
