I'm expecting the same result as every other test - the ST will come 2nd or 3rd to two cars built more for the track than the road but will get top marks as a daily driver.

Ooooh I don't lol. I don't let anybody tell me what to like and what to drive. I loves my Stella I do, and she'll never be second to something French or a boy racer-mobile.

It was one of the top gear reviews that convinced me I really did want the mk2.

Having owned one for a while now I think Clarkson was nearly spot on. I remember him mentioning fuel economy though, he got that wrong.

It was Clarkson's test of the the Mk2 seven years or so ago that made me want an ST. Had to wait until now to get one though!

Unfortunately the prize of 'best daily driver' equates to booby prize in the car scales of rank, at least it has in the years i've been reading tests. It's a running joke in my workplace when we read reviews because one car always comes out as 'best daily driver' when it won no other category lol

I've just got to take a few weeks of mockery now.... .great.

It best hot hatch daily drive and most fun to own as the other cars are to track based, I drove the Renault before I bought the Focus and it's quick, the ride is hard and I mean hard, the build quailty and the cabin is French build quality, enough said, didn't drive the Astra as the dealers were usless!!!! Sat in one and it felt cheap for over 30k!!!

I liked the Seat Cupra R a lot but the boot was 2 small.

Said all this before but I'm so glad I got the Focus and mine I think may do quite well in a drag race!!!
