2016 Ford Focus ST vs. 2017 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Ford Focus ST, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic, the Ford Focus ST may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Focus ST, due to its tank size and 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 ST is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Civic. 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 ST will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
The Ford Focus ST is a little wider than the Honda Civic, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Ford Focus ST is slightly shorter than the Honda Civic, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Ford Focus ST does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Civic.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Focus ST has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic. 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 ST and the Honda Civic. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Focus ST as you will in the Honda Civic.

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