Ford sharpens Focus RS with Limited Edition, but are the extras worth the spend?

AUSTRALIA is going through a bit of a hot hatch renaissance at the moment with the likes of the Honda Civic Type R back in local showrooms, as well as the perennial Volkswagen Golf GTI and R pair.
Renault’s Megane RS is about to launch in new-generation form, while Hyundai has also lobbed its first foray into the hotly-contested market with its i30 N.
Meanwhile, Ford continues with its Focus ST and flagship RS – both based on the soon-to-be-replaced third-generation small car.
When it launched in July, 2016, the Focus RS was one of the sharpest and most rewarding steers available for circa-$50,000, but the Limited Edition version tested here adds more kit for more money.
Does Ford do enough in the Focus RS Limited Edition to keep it competitive against the crowded hot hatch market?
