2017 Ford Focus vs. 2017 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Focus offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, the Ford Focus may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus as you will with the Honda Civic, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Focus will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Civic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Focus and the Honda Civic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Focus is a little wider than the Honda Civic, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Ford Focus is slightly shorter than the Honda Civic, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Ford Focus has much less torque than the Honda Civic, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Focus has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Honda Civic. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Focus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Civic.

Warranty
The Ford Focus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
