2016 Dodge Dart vs. 2016 Ford Focus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Dart offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Ford Focus. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Dart and the Ford Focus in the front seats.

Convenience
The Dodge Dart will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Focus, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Dart 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Dart is much higher than that for the Ford Focus.
