My very first time owning a Volvo........ Warning..Contains T5 Content. in AutoShite Posted January 30, 2018 · Report reply Is this the same engine as the Focus ST then? Similar performance? Seems a much nicer proposition than an ST that's been on track days and then seen a minimum level of servicing to tide it over. Guy round the corner has one and it looks tired and baggy. Pretty sure it's wearing cheapo tyres too which explains the cock-eyed bumper like it's had a brush with the scenery. I believe that the (Volvo Sourced) Focus ST engine is essentially the same, bar capacity,& some internals... Focus is 2.5....mines is a 2.4..However, I stand to be corrected on that one, as I do not know much about Volvo's. I was looking at ST's, but the vast majority of them had quite a few previous registered keepers, One even had 9 previous owners...Feck that..
