Actually have you read the lastest car and driver... Up until now all people had to go with is the Fords predicted numbers...

cliff notes...

the ford ST won every single performance benchmark against the GTI and MS3

0-60 mph
0–1/4 mile
Slalom
Skidpad
Braking, 60–0 mph
Braking, 80–0 mph
Fuel economy, EPA

The focus swept them all...It was the fastest, stopped the shortest, turned the hardest (.96g skidpad thanks to those awesome tires)

I do not consider the GTI or the MS3 a competitor to this car. I consider the WRX and Golf R a competitor. Even the STI must take notice, as in some ways this car is its better.
