2016 Ford Focus vs. 2016 Toyota Yaris Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Focus offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Yaris with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Toyota Yaris in the front seats.

Convenience
The Ford Focus will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Toyota Yaris. 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 Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Focus is much wider than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Toyota Yaris.

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

Handling
The Ford Focus has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Yaris, 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 Toyota Yaris. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Focus and the Toyota Yaris.

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