Mercury (Hobart) - Motoring - - ROAD TEST -

FORD FO­CUS ST $38,990

The RS screamer gets all the at­ten­tion but this is just as good day to day. Runs a 185kW/340Nm 2.0-litre turbo, with sixspeed man­ual only.

ALFA ROMEO GUILIETTA VELOCE

$41,990 Flawed but love­able and gor­geous. 177kW 1.7-litre turbo/sixspeed dual clutch box. Goes hard and fun, weird ergonomics.

VOLK­SWA­GEN GOLF GTI

$43,840 This price is with a six-speed DSG box. Golf is pricey but you get what you pay for. A great car, in what­ever sit­u­a­tion you drive it. 162kW 2.0-litre turbo.
