We at Car Articles have been extremely impressed with the many and varied cars that have been announced and are being shown at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Few motors however resonate as strongly with us as hot hatchbacks. Why? Simply put it’s the ability to chuck the shopping in, take the kids home and then have a hoot on your way to work the following day.

We talk a lot here about a car being able to fulfill on a number of levels – not least because most people can only afford one, or two in a couple. The hot hatchback remains a symbol of offering speed and performance without compromising on the day to day stuff too.

The 2016 Ford Focus RS is set to be a staggering machine, there’s no two ways about it. Clever four wheel drive, over 300 horsepowers and looks that’ll either scare the neighbours or blend in perfectly depending on the hue you choose. Oh and it even has five doors and a reasonably sized boot. Drift mode anyone? Oh go on then.

Watch the video to see what XCAR make of the 2016 Ford Focus RS. It is a beautifully shot piece and examines the previous Focus RS variants in way that you may not have considered before.
