Feature Flick: 2013 Ford Focus ST Plays Hide and Seek with Civic Si, Mazdaspeed 3

Ford's latest promotional video for the 2013 Focus ST hot hatchback shows the car racing against two of its competitors. Called "Hide and Seek," this episode of the Focus ST Sessions web video series shows the trio of cars sliding and speeding around a dark warehouse.

The clip starts with a Tangerine Scream Focus ST calmly driving around the dark building -- only to be surprised when a Honda Civic Si decides to give chase. The Ford Focus ST driver also soon finds a Mazdaspeed 3 on his tail, and the trio darts and dives around the abandoned location until the bright yellow Focus can escape.

The Focus ST Sessions video series is designed to drum up excitement around the 252-hp hatchback, which can be ordered from Ford dealerships now. You can watch the new "Hide and Seek" episode embedded below.

Would that Ford Design drop the assumption only the 18-24 crowd would buy an ST.  Whilst visiting my local Ford dealer and inspecting a Tangerine Scream ST, I was forced to use sun glasses, which gave me the idea our State bears would easily spot me making time on the local Interstates and expressways!  Black, Silver, Red, Blue and Tangerine are in-your-face colors for someone seeking more stealth. Something more than a primarily black interior would be appreciated for those of us contending with the summers of the Southeast, Texas and California! I don't think I'm the only one who would enjoy a Sterling gray or more pastel colored ST with a light gray leather interior.  The ST encourages a certain amount of hooliganism and I'd prefer to keep my DL intact.
