All Focus ST models sold on the European market are factoryequipped with Recaro-branded seats. Depending on the seat cover material, available features range from different adjustment options (manual or electric), to a comfort version with seat heating. Customers who order the exclusive leather
option get Recaro seats in the front and back. Focus ST buyers in the U.S. – where Recaro manufactures the seats locally – get Recaro as standard equipment when they order the full or partial-leather versions.


For the first time, the Ford Focus ST performance car (250 PS) will be available in 40 countries worldwide in a five-door hatchback or station wagon version. Like its predecessors, the third-generation Ford Focus ST comes equipped with seats supplied by Recaro. Not only the street version: successful teamwork between Ford and Recaro has a long tradition. The car manufacturer also relies on Recaro seat specialists when it comes to motorsports. Two factory teams are starting the current WRC (World Rally Championship) season in a Ford Fiesta RS equipped with a Recaro Pro Racer Ultima 1.0. The new racing shell made by Recaro Automotive Seating is homologated in compliance with FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile) specifications.
