The ST-Line is the second rung up in Ford's new Focus range, starting from $28,990. It is also available as a wagon, priced from $30,990.
The ST-Line has a sportier bent than the Trend below it and Titanium above it. What sets this model most apart from the rest of the range is the sports-tuned independent rear suspension. The ST-Line variants also rides 10mm lower than the Trend.
Despite its hot-hatch looks the ST-Line uses the same 1.5-litre 134kW/240Nm three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine as the rest of the Focus range. All Focuses have eight-speed torque converter transmissions. Ford rates fuel consumption at 6.4L/100km.
Standard equipment that the ST-Line gains over the base Trend includes 17-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, auto-folding and heated wing-mirrors, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry with push-start a Qi (Chee) wireless phone charging pad, a tyre-pressure monitoring system and sportier trim additions inside and out.
The Focus range was awarded a maximum five ANCAP safety stars as of December 2018.
