2016 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Ford Focus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Cruze than the Ford Focus. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Ford Focus in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Focus, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Focus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze and the Ford Focus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is a little narrower than the Ford Focus, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Cruze, which is slightly longer than the Ford Focus.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Focus.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Ford Focus, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Ford Focus. The Chevrolet Cruze has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Ford Focus.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Focus.
