Motor kombat: Golf GTI vs Ford Focus ST.Some cars look like they're just meant to get you from A to B – no thrills or frills, just functional efficiency. Then you have cars like the 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Ford Focus ST, both of which promise that the journey will be more of an event than the destination. The new sculpted hood affords the car a more aggressive look and plays well with the redesigned headlights that enhance the car's virile character.What all this translates to on the tarmac is 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, the quarter mile in 14.2 seconds at 100 mph and a top speed of 153 mph, all for a car that weighs in at 1389 kg.Like the GTI, The ST is powered by 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four, but this one produces the 252 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 266 pound-feet of torque.The ST can zip from 0-to-60 in 5.7 seconds and do the quarter in 14.4 seconds at 99 mph.The car also offers rare comfort in terms of space both in the front (53 cubic feet) and in the rear (44 cubic feet), as well as for your cargo in the back (13 cubic feet).The quality of the materials used isn't bad, but falls short of the finesse found in the Golf.
