Leasehackr Score: 6.8 years
Leasing this car for one year amounts to paying 15% of its MSRP.
With a Leasehackr Score of 6.8 years, the Focus ST doesn't make for a very good lease right now. Its residual value is simply too low. We'd wait to see if its lease program improves next quarter.
There's a $750 Lease Conquest Rebate, which will lower payments by $20 per month, if you're currently leasing a non-Ford vehicle. There's also a $500 rebate for recent college grads, military, and police, which cannot be combined with the Lease Conquest Rebate.
Also consider: Ford Fiesta ST, Volkswagen GTI, Subaru WRX, MINI Cooper S, FIAT 500 Abarth
We love the: Blend of fun, practicality, and refinement. Lift-off oversteer.
But watch out for: Manual transmission only. Optional RECARO seats can be snug.
