2014 Dodge Avenger vs. 2014 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 Dodge Avenger than the Ford Focus. The Dodge Avenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Focus.

Convenience
With the Dodge Avenger 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 Dodge Avenger will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Focus, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Avenger is much higher than that for the Ford Focus.

Dimensions
The Dodge Avenger is a little wider than the Ford Focus, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Dodge Avenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford Focus.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Avenger transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford Focus.

Handling
The Dodge Avenger has about the same turning radius as the Ford Focus, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Avenger has a much more powerful engine than the Ford Focus. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Avenger and the Ford Focus. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Dodge Avenger as you will in the Ford Focus.

Warranty
The Dodge Avenger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Focus.
