Rendered – 2016 Ford Focus RS image

A new rendering is showing us how the upcoming 2016 Ford Focus RS might look like once it will become available.

The new generation of the Ford Focus RS range topping hot hatch is just around the corner and with the car company getting ready to officially pull the wraps off its body, probably at the 2015 NAIAS (no confirmation yet), renderings with the model keep popping onto the web, providing us with a look on how the vehicle may be like.

The newest rendering has been signed by Top Speed and it is showing us the model from its front three-quarters and from the start we can notice the resemblance with its smaller brother, the Fiesta ST. The Aston Martin like front grille has been dropped for the vehicle and this has been equipped with a slightly more aggressive body kit, which includes front fender vents, a ventilated hood, a rear spoiler and several other tweaks.

We are not sure at this time exactly what engine we will find under its hood, but rumor has it that the 2.3 liter from the Mustang EcoBoost is a big possibility. The unit should produce between 325 HP (242 kW) and 350 HP (261 kW), being connected to a 6-speed manual transmission and, for the first time ever, an all-wheel drive system. More details on the new Ford Focus RS are limited at this time and will be announced probably at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit, next week.
