    Ref 72 -
    The Ford Focus RS had already proven to be worthy of the mega hatch tag, thanks to its balance of power, agility and value. But Ford Performance reckons that some buyers want even more from their five-door family car. The Focus RS Edition bundles a few choice extras with a new look and limited slip differential – but with only a tiny price hike. With no tangible downside, it makes a good car even better.
    In 2018, Ford will unveil the next-generation Focus family car, which will undoubtedly sound the death knell for the current Focus RS – one of the undisputed hot hatch greats of its generation.

    But the RS isn't easing its way into retirement. No, instead there's a new and even more hardcore Ford Focus RS ‘Edition’ to tempt enthusiasts to part with their hard-earned cash. The heart of the new factory-fitted option package is a mechanical limited slip differential for the front axle, made by Quaife.

    This enhances the already entertaining GKN Twinster all-wheel-drive system, which retains its rather silly Drift mode. It still can send up to 70 per cent of the engine's output to the rear wheels, but the new front differential automatically sends more torque to the front wheel with the most traction, too.

    In the standard car, this is done by applying the brakes to the wheel without grip, which is slower and less smooth in operation. On a soaking wet test track, where we were able to compare the standard RS with the new RS Edition, it was possible to get on the power earlier when exiting a tight corner, making the whole experience subtly more satisfying – and no doubt faster in terms of lap times, too.

    There's more bite to the front end, plus a fraction more stability under hard braking. The differential should be even more effective on tight and twisty roads, wet or dry, though it has to be said that it really only comes into play when you're exploring the outer envelope of the Focus RS's abilities.
