While it may still be a bit too soon to say for sure, we at Zimmerman Ford nonetheless believe our beloved American brand may well have built one of the very best hot hatchbacks the world has ever seen with its latest, the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS.

Sure -- that's some lofty praise. But lofty praise is precisely what we feel this sport-tuned superstar deserves!

And now, here to cite some of the Focus RS's most salient qualities is Auto Trader UK Senior Road Tester, Paul Bond. His review is as follows:

There is only one trim level available for the Focus RS; thankfully, though, it's about as close to fully loaded as one can get.

Standard equipment includes dual-zone auto climate control, partial leather upholstery, front Recaro sport seats, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, the SYNC 3 infotainment array, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth compatibility, voice-command connectivity, a media player interface, as well as a spine-tingling, 10-speaker Sony sound system with HD and satellite radios.

So, what's the hold-up, faithful friend? The time is now to experience the brilliance of this bad boy. As such, we invite you to pop by our Cedar Rapids, IA facility, whereupon we'll happily arrange a test drive in the Focus RS, or any other Ford model that might've caught your eye.
