2013 Ford Focus ST: It's Got a Good Pedal Box
June 11, 2013
Our 2013 Ford Focus ST has good pedal placement for heel-and-toe downshifting. The gas pedal is a little bit too far away from the brake and it could stand to be a little larger, but with some adjustment of your foot, it works out pretty well.
According to various forums online, there are some modifications you can make to raise the gas pedal up from the floor. If I owned a Ford Focus ST, I'd likely spend my first Saturday with it adjusting the pedals to match my preferences. Heel-toe downshifting in the ST isn't as easy as it is in our Subaru BRZ, but it's just as fun.
