2017 Ford Focus RS:
With a 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the little Ford develops an impressive 257kW of power and 470Nm of torque on overboost (15 seconds). Officially, the torque figure is 440Nm as it needs to be measured indefinitely and not for a specific period of time, but let us know when you find a straight long enough to sustain 15 seconds of flat out acceleration. It will go from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds. The RS sends its power to all four wheels, though with an inherent bias to the rear (up to 70 percent to the rear). It’s also only available with a six-speed manual, which may disappoint some, but Ford argues that it helped keep the development and engineering cost down and also the additional weight of something like a dual-clutch transmission upfront would create understeer at the limit. This is the same engine as the Ecoboost Mustang, but with a higher rated turbocharger and, to be frank, an infinitely better exhaust note than the four-banger Pony.

2017 Honda Civic Type R:
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R gets its power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4. US-spec Output is set at 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, all of which heads to the front wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission -- no automatics or CVTs here, folks. The 13.8-inch Brembo front brakes help bring the car to a stop. The CTR will arrive on a single platform -- the hatchback. It's a mean one, with exaggerated air vents in the front, fender flares on the side and a big ol' wing out back. A hood scoop up front delivers air to the engine, and out back, there are not two, but three tailpipes. Red accents line the lower portion of the body and the wheels, because red is the sportiest color. Under the body, Honda made a ton of changes to give the CTR the performance cred it deserves. It takes advantage of Honda's "Dual Axis" front strut design, which separates the steering knuckle and strut to spread apart the steering and suspension forces, which Honda believes will mitigate torque steer and increase steering feel. An adaptive suspension setup featuring unique spring, damper and bushing settings is capable of changing based on vehicle mode. The Civic Type-R will come with three different modes -- Comfort, Sport (which is default) and +R. Swapping modes will change the steering weight, throttle response, stability control, adaptive dampers and -- for enthusiasts who have a hard time with heel-toe -- enable automatic rev-matching. The interior isn't too different from the normal Civic hatchback, save for some aggressive sport seats. There's a leather wrapped steering wheel, an aluminum shift knob and pedals, a red gauge cluster and a Type R plaque on the center console. The headlights, taillights, fog lights and turn signals are all LED.
