The Focus RS is a car of expectation and history, but it drops into a market that does have excellent competition. We gathered the three other AWD, 300hp cars available for around $40k, and went to a favorite road in search of fun.

Rarely have we been this excited for a comparison. And after driving them back to back, the results were not what we expected.
