2016 is shaping up to be a banner year for the hot hatch segment. More are coming to America than ever before. The one we're (naturally) the most excited about is the Ford Focus RS, which debuted last year and is set to arrive this spring. Ahead of its official launching, automotive news sites like Autotrader are weighing in.

The Focus RS makes some pretty lofty promises. On the one hand, a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost with 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque has raised eyebrows, as has its all-wheel drive and advanced performance technologies. If you've been fretting, however, Autotrader says there's nothing to worry about. This car is an absolute joy to drive.
