Ford Focus RS ‘Car & Hothatch’ van het jaar 2016

In de jacht naar deze ‘titelhouder’ gingen de nodige tests aan vooraf, zo werden gevestigde namen zoals, VW Golf de Honda Civic Type-R plus 2 nieuwkomers zoals de Mercedes-AMG A45 en de Audi RS3 tegenover de 2016 Focus RS gezet en kwam er niet in alles bovenuit. Soms moet je bepaalde dingen in een breed perspectief zien en krijgt het verhaal een andere wending.

Verrassend? niet als je een Blue Oval liefhebber bent, de heren journalisten van Top Gear lijken ons objectief genoeg ons hun ‘ongezouten’ mening te geven en dat alles levert het volgende resultaat op.
