In 2013 the Focus ST is a global performance model so the EU variant should get the same innards. The 2013 ST is a pretty fun car to drive.
It was also the Focus RS that had the Volvo-derived motor. I a version of the same one in my S60R good for 300 HP stock. That motor sounds fantastic and I'm going to miss it, even though the Subarus I've driven sound great too (I haven't received my STi yet). A friend once described it as "half of an amazing V10", lol.

Almost every "P2" Volvo S60 and V70 had a 5-cylinder in North America. Many of the older S70/V70/850 models did too. The smaller cars have fours or fives, and the newer cars have mostly I6s with a V8 wedged in one for a few model years for good measure.

There's also quite a few Audis sporting I5s.
