2012 Ford Focus Zetec S Review Specs & Price – Now, Ford offers a trailer for the ST, an ST Lite, if you want a car in the UK It’s called 2012 Ford Focus Zetec S. Where the real ST will use the 250-horsepower, 2.0 liter four, Zetec S has a 180-horse, 1.6 liter motor. Both come with six-speed manual transmission. Focus Zetec S get larger wheels and sporty suspension of your regular Focus. But once again (and you know we are going to say this), this modification ST chassis is not as bad as before. To spec of 2012 Ford Zetec S, they back with up the 180 horsepower at 5700 rpm, it manages to maintain a torque of 177 lb-ft from 1600 rpm up to 5000, and below 4000 on transient overboost it’ll actually make 199 lb-ft. Not bad at all for a compact hatch that doesn’t pretend to be hard-core sporting. It’s enough for 0-62 mph sprint in 7.9 seconds. The 1.6 recently debuted in the Fiesta ST concept, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it comes to the U.S. in either a production version of that car or the U.S. spec Focus at some point.

The Focus Zetec S gets bigger wheels and sportier suspension than your regular Focus. But again (and you knew we were going to say this), these chassis modifications aren’t as severe as the ST’s will be. And then there’s the body kit. Of course styling is a matter of taste, but we can’t help but feel the Zetec S additions aren’t a great success. The Focus front end was already busy enough — does it need the extra splitter beards? At the sides, the added visual body mass from the rocker extensions is an anti-sporty fail because it makes the wheels look smaller. They’re 17s, but look like 16s. The ST bodywork we’ve seen at auto shows looks better integrated and just plain better.

We already know all about Ford’s long-awaited and much anticipated Focus ST. It was first shown as a near production-level concept at the Paris auto show in 2010, but we won’t get it on the road until mid-2012. While we wait, Ford is offering a trailer for the ST — an ST Lite, if you will — in the U.K. It’s called the 2012 Ford Focus Zetec S. Where the real ST will use a 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter four, the Zetec S has a 180-horse, 1.6-liter motor. Both come mated to six-speed manual transmissions.

For Engine The 2012 Ford Focus Zetec S, has a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine, good for a whopping 230 horsepower giving a great 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 150 miles per hour. The Zetec is a real performance bargain and has been found to be easily tunable well beyond these levels of power. The Zetec has several specifications, the standard car, the ST2 and ST3 having the same performance but higher levels of standard spec, the Zetec also has some model specific colours: Electric Orange, Electric white and Performance Blue Tri-coat metallic paint. The Focus makes a great everyman performance car, being able to do all the practical every day thing a standard Focus is capable of, but go like a rocket-ship if you need it to.
