The RS is coming to the US actually. But what does it matter when the New Mazdaspeed is going to be the same powerplant as well as the same suspension just reworked by mazda who has done a better job than ford anyways. GO with the mazdaspeed.
The euro focus RS has NOT been announced for the USA at any time frame. However, the 2010 US focus WILL be using the same C1 platform as the euro focus. Also, while not officially announced yet, the 2010 ms3 most likely will be using an upgraded 2.5L DISI and NOT the volvo sourced T5 engine. Whether the next ms3 will use the revo knuckle from the RS is also unknown.
Who do you think actually designed and tuned the current C1 (3, euro focus, etc...) suspension? That would be ford. Mazda was responsible for body rigidity and volvo for saftey.
