Video – Focus RS vs Evo X

Tiff Needell and Jason Plato have been testing the Focus RS against one if its less obvious adversaries. While the Focus may be staking a claim as the best hot hatch, there are other cars that may be a more suitable test of its abilities.

Fifth Gear have pitched the Mitsubishi Evo X against Ford’s new pocket rocket, a car that, as Tiff so eloquently puts it, has got “the angry buy levitra now bark, fight-scarred face and shellsuit bling of a true council estate chariot” and has “a name with an equal reputation in the McDonalds car park.”

With Tiff in the RS and Plato in the Evo, the two cars are first put through a slalom course (with a touch of football), followed by a timed run around a the track. Which one wins? Watch the video and find out!
