The dearly departed Focus ST was just over 3200 lbs for 250-hp/270 ft.lb and it was pretty good.
The I3 turbo in the Corolla makes 257-hp/265 ft.lb; same power with less pumping losses, better fuel economy and less weight on the nose of the car.
There's nothing wrong with that; especially because no other manufacturer is rushing to build relatively inexpensive AWD hatchbacks (Golf R doesn't count).
