The 2017 Ford Focus RS is a machine to be reckoned with. Hell, when's the last time you drove something so shockingly good, you had to shout it from the rooftops? That's how we feel about this hot hatch, a bona fide rally car for the street that even has its own drift mode? This 350 horsepower, turbocharged, all-wheel drive street carver is worth every penny of its $37K base price, and then some. If we didn't have a crap load of little kids in our family, we'd head out right now to buy this bad boy, no questions asked.
