In all cases Smart Lease are acting as a credit broker and not a lender. Smart Lease is authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority. All of our Ford Focus ST3 contracts are based on finance contracts and as such come with a few points to note. Firstly failure to keep up to date with payments may result in a charge from the finance provider.
Secondly, cancellations may result in a fee being incurred. Thirdly, Initial Payments are typically taken just after you take delivery of the car not is all cases and is part of the finance rental not refundable. Even in 3rd gear at a good turn of speed.
What this means is that you have to exercise precise throttle control to get the most out of your ST3. They say this transforms the car and makes it launch more effectively even in wet conditions. Interesting Ford seems to have taken note of this shortcoming as the model is to have an electronic Limited Slip Differential, which though perhaps not as effective as the Quaife, will at least come as standard. That is probably a very good thing actually. The outgoing model had BHP and it was handful in the dry, when trying to press on. The new model is claimed to have close to BHP so the problem will only be worse.

I think adding the LSD is a great move by Ford. The looks aren't going to be to everyone's taste. However, I personally prefer the look of the outgoing model to the new one. It looks angrier, more aggressive, more 'pumped'.

It looks a bit like a Focus that's been to the gym and possibly started on some aggression enhancing testosterone course. The front grill along with the wide front arches give the car a nice aggressive stance. The new Focus ST by contrast looks a little more understated. It looks more subtle. Now to me, the new one looks like it's pulling it's cheeks in, or pursing its lips or something.
The old one looks grumpier. It looks like it's growling at you. Well, first things first, the centre pipe look IS cool. I don't care what anyone says. However it isn't without its drawbacks and I can see why Ford have gone back to a more conventional twin pipes at either side. So cool factor aside.
The centre pipe can be a bit of a pain. Firstly it means you cannot fit a tow bar. There is no way of fitting a tow bar of any shape or form that I am aware of. It might be possible with some serious fabrication, but whatever - it's going to be a pain. Now on the one hand you might say that doesn't matter for a sports car like this.
But let's be honest this ISN'T a sports car. There are times when you MAY want to tow, except you can't. I think this is especially a problem in the diesel model. Probably even more so the diesel estate. I mean you buy a powerful, torquey diesel estate so you can tow stuff. But you can't buy a Focus Sexually Transmitted Disease estate, because you can technically tow more with a cc motorcycle.
I often start out on a cold morning by turning the car on and running the engine while I scrape the ice off the windows and load my boot. Scraping the windows is fine, the problem occurs when you load the boot. The ergonomics of this activity are such that is basically a given that you will stand precisely in the centre as you open your boot.
That spot is then precisely where you will load goods into your car from.

It is also exactly where all the exhaust fumes are being blasted. So while you stand there, sorting your boot out you are effectively getting slightly gassed. Well the same will be true of the new Focus as the old one. There is no wear or damage to any of the buttons, all in working order.
The large, practical boot area is very clean with no dirt or damage. Part exchange welcome, please call or email for a quick, accurate and polite response from a car enthusiast, not a salesman restricted by a trade guide price.
