How does the Ford Focus 09 handle in Forza?

The Focus has been known for its fairly good handling, with pretty snappy acceleration, and Forza Motorsport’s edition is no different. The base car can be a little slow at top speed, and its breaking can be a little weak, but once you master the Focus, it’s a strong car worth having in your inventory.

Actually, once you reduce your fuel, adjust your tyres and upgrade the front tyres on the Focus, it’s by far one of the best cars in its class.

In line with all of the cars in the C-class, the Ford Focus RS 09 costs 70,000 to unlock the base model. Most cars in the C-class are 70,000-90,000, which makes the Focus a good deal in the C-class, especially once you upgrade the car.
