4. 2015 Ford Focus ST – Most potent hot-hatch for the money
Yes, I drive one, but no, that had no bearing on my choice. Once again, I headed to my trusty abacus to determine the dollars per horsepower and found that the $23,350 2015 Focus ST easily beats all the competitors at $92.65 per horsepower. Sure, the ST isn’t as quick to 60 mph as the Golf GTI or the Golf R, but with the extra cash in your pocket, you can certainly make it as quick as the GTI.
