2014 Ford Focus vs. 2014 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Honda CR-Z in the front seats.

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 CR-Z, 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 CR-Z. 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 CR-Z.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Honda CR-Z, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Focus, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda CR-Z.

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 CR-Z.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus is somewhat more powerful than the Honda CR-Z.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Focus more than the Honda CR-Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Focus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda CR-Z.

Warranty
The Ford Focus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
