2014 Ford Focus vs. 2015 Honda Fit Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Fit 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 Fit in the front seats.

Convenience
The Ford Focus will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Fit, 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 Ford Focus is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Fit. 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 Fit.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Honda Fit, 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 Fit.

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

Handling
The Ford Focus has a larger turning radius than the Honda Fit, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Honda Fit. The Ford Focus has less cargo capacity than the Honda Fit, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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