The new Focus RS was developed with an emphasis on performance improvement and also the involvement of the driver of the car.

The latest innovation for the Focus RS is the use of a dual-clutch system, four-wheel drive. Basically, it allows up to 70% of the power delivered to the rear wheels and power up to 100% can also be sent to the individual tires.

"In this way, you can feel great steering response but will be out of turn with agile - and we can use the vector torque to ensure safe and stable car through the diversion."

The second biggest innovation in Focus RS model is lighter transmission. The system adds only 20kg to the top of the car - the same heavy burden on RevoKnuckle suspension system used on the RS generation before. However, with Dynamic Torque Vectoring system, Ford's latest, RevoKnuckle system is considered excessive.

These figures make it the most powerful Fiesta production model ever built by Ford. SistemTi-VCT allows the camshaft (camshafts) untukmenggerakkan intake and exhaust valves in the combustion cycle at different times. It was done according to engine speed and load.

This means, the turbocharger provides the driver with additional automatic thrust power, especially when extra acceleration is required. Overboost built in calibration Fiesta ST engine and broaden the range of cycles per minute (RPM) on top of the torque curve, thus providing a better overall performance.
