2015 Ford Focus vs. 2016 Mazda Mazda6 Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda6 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 Mazda Mazda6 in the front seats.

With the Mazda Mazda6 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.

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 Mazda Mazda6. 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 Mazda Mazda6 have similar Destination Charges.

The Ford Focus is about the same width as the Mazda Mazda6. If you go with the Ford Focus, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda Mazda6.

The Ford Focus has much less torque than the Mazda Mazda6, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Ford Focus has about the same turning radius as the Mazda Mazda6, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

The Ford Focus has less horsepower than the Mazda Mazda6, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Mazda Mazda6. The Ford Focus has less cargo capacity than the Mazda Mazda6, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
