2015 Ford Focus vs. 2015 Scion iQ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Focus than the Scion iQ. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion iQ, the Ford Focus may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Ford Focus you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Scion iQ, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Ford Focus is somewhat more expensive than the Scion iQ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Focus is much higher than that for the Scion iQ.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Scion iQ, 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 Scion iQ.

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 Scion iQ.

Handling
The Ford Focus has a significantly larger turning radius than the Scion iQ, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus has a much more powerful engine than the Scion iQ. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Focus offers greater seating capacity than the Scion iQ, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Focus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Scion iQ.

Warranty
The Ford Focus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion iQ.
