2017 Toyota Yaris vs. 2017 Ford Focus Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Ford Focus requires fewer visits to 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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Yaris is clearly a better financial choice over the Ford Focus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Yaris and the Ford Focus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Yaris is much slimmer than the Ford Focus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Yaris, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Focus.

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

Handling
The Toyota Yaris has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Focus, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Yaris is significantly less powerful than the Ford Focus. 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 Toyota Yaris and the Ford Focus.

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