2014 Honda Accord vs. 2014 Ford Focus ST Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Accord offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Ford Focus ST with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Ford Focus ST will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Focus ST, 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 Honda Accord is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Focus ST. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Accord will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Focus ST.

Dimensions
The Honda Accord is a little wider than the Ford Focus ST, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Honda Accord, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford Focus ST.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Accord is significantly less powerful than the Ford Focus ST. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Accord and the Ford Focus ST. The Honda Accord has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Focus ST, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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