2014 Ford Focus vs. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic Hybrid than the Ford Focus, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Honda Civic Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Focus, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Focus is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Civic Hybrid. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Honda Civic Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Focus takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic Hybrid.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic Hybrid. 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 Ford Focus and the Honda Civic Hybrid. The Ford Focus has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

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