Ford Australia has added a premium flagship to the Focus ST range, the limited-run Focus ST-3. It’s available as a single, range-topping model limited to 200 units.

The Focus ST-3 has a panoramic sunroof, heated and electrically adjustable front Recaro sports seats with lumbar support, B&O Play 10-speaker sound system with sub-woofer, and head-up display.

It has a high-performance, all-alloy 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 206kW at 5,500 rpm and 420Nm of torque from 3,000 to 4,000 rpm.

It sits on 19-inch machined alloy wheels fitted with 235/35 Pirelli P-Zero tyres. The front and rear brake components are clearly visible, standing out with red brake calipers to give it a sporting look.

Inside, the Focus ST-3 adds a number of premium features, including heated and electrically adjustable Recaro sports seats trimmed in leather and suede with larger bolsters for improved lateral support during cornering. Both front seats feature ST logos, with lumbar support.

The ST-3 comes with the company’s five-year/unlimited kilometre factory warranty, as well as Ford Service Benefits, which includes Service Loan Car Program and SYNC 3 sat-nav mapping updates to eligible customers at participating dealerships.

Ford Focus ST-3 is fully-imported from Germany and is available from Ford dealers nationally later this year. If you’re keen it might be an idea to contact your favourite Ford dealer to discuss reserving one for you.

“The Focus ST has attracted a passionate following, and the ST-3 supplements our highly popular Ford Performance portfolio that also includes the Fiesta ST, Mustang and Ranger Raptor,” said Andrew Birkic, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand.

“The premium equipment levels add an extra touch of prestige to the Focus ST’s already highly-regarded performance credentials, with the technology and innovation our enthusiast customers expect in a hot-hatch.”
