2018 Subaru WRX vs 2018 Ford Focus ST: Design

The Subaru WRX and the Ford Focus ST are both based on other vehicles; however, the 2018 Subaru WRX goes to great lengths to avoid looking like just another Subaru Impreza, thanks to features like a hood scoop. The Focus ST, on the other hand, looks much like any other Ford Focus. You'll get more passenger volume in the WRX, as well as a greater selection of versatile features. A roof rack is available on the WRX, but not on the Focus; the WRX also comes standard with heated exterior mirrors, which are only an available upgrade on the Focus ST.
