    I'd put my money on the focus, you can look on autotrader for the 0-60's and I thin the focus would be a good second in front.

    From memory the 0-60 figues are more or less the same. Maybe 0.1 of a second either way. Think the 2.0 Zetec is 9.5 seconds, 1.8 is 10.5 and 1.6 about a week.

    How sad is it I know those figues off the top of my head. Think I spend too long looking at cars on Autotrader and memorising the figues. :-(

    What about the non vvt, not exactly quick.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
