Pricewatch: Ford Focus ST v Honda Civic Type R

THE new Honda Civic Type R has certainly been getting rave reviews in the press following its launch and it seems the residual value predictors are equally keen on it.

The cooking Civic has already been a great sales success and has strong predicted RVs. Add into the mix even edgier styling, the screaming 201bhp engine and the brand strength of Type R and it seems Honda is on to another winner, even up against the roundly praised Ford Focus ST, which outperforms the standard Focus by some distance.
