Is a Ford Focus ST considered a sports car by insurance companies?

I just bought a Ford Focus ST because I want a bit of extra power and maneuverability. Will my insurance company increase my rates because they consider a Ford Focus ST a sports car?

“With 252 horsepower, a Ford Focus ST certainly feels like a sports car when you’re behind the wheel. However, many other factors come into play with regard to your car insurance rates; it’s not all about the car.
Age, location, and driving history all play into the rate you’re charged. Plus, each car insurance company has different determinants for whether or not a vehicle is considered a sports car.
Your best bet is to get car insurance quotes online. Not only is it quick and easy, but you can also see which companies deem the Focus ST a sports car by the rate they’re charging. By doing this, you’ll get the best rate possible.”
