The 2015 model year brings with it a slightly refreshed version of Ford's hottest hot hatch, the Focus ST. The suspension's been returned for a slightly sportier ride, and the electric power steering has been given some additional weight. There's also a new front-suspension geometry that's meant to cut down on the car's infamous torque steer. A few aesthetic modifications round out the updates for this year, and all in all, the car is more fun than it's ever been.
The Dodge Dart is Dodge's answer to the Honda Civic. A sensible, relatively small four-door sedan that milks all the sprightliness it can out of a small engine. The Rallye edition sportifies things further with a tightened suspension and a rear stabilizer bar. Unfortunately there's no additional sportiness under the hood; the Rallye packs the same 2.4-liter I-4 as the standard Dart.
Even after 50 years on the road, the name origin of Ford's famous pony car is still up for debate. Was the Mustang paying tribute to the free-roaming horse of the American West, or the World War II P-51 fighter plane? Even Ford is admittedly unsure. But, for Mustang fans, the answer doesn't really matter, because the all-new 2015 model is a little bit of both.
