The Ford Focus RS continues to impress the critics, with the award of another major title - the Nuts magazine Car of the Year 2009 trophy.
This latest prize joins the Scottish 'sporting' Car of the Year 2009 award presented earlier this month, and is set to accelerate orders for Ford's definitive hot hatch. More than 2,000 orders have been placed, from a total UK production of around 4,000 vehicles.
A fan of the Ford Focus RS, Nuts magazine Deputy Editor, Adam Ralph, said: "Our readers felt the Focus RS represented all that a young bloke looked for in a new car - it's affordable, a real head turner and ridiculously good fun to drive."
On hearing the news, Ford's Team RS chief engineer, Dirk Densing said: "The Focus RS project set out to deliver optimal high-performance road car technology together with the practicality expected of a Focus. We feel we have achieved this and are delighted that Nuts readers agree."Published 24 November 2009
