2015 Ford Focus vs. 2015 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Toyota Corolla requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Focus, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Focus will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Corolla. 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 Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Toyota Corolla, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Ford Focus is slightly shorter than the Toyota Corolla, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Toyota Corolla. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Focus as you will in the Toyota Corolla.

Warranty
The Ford Focus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Corolla.
