In shopping for your next car, you may wonder if the 2016 Ford Focus standard features measure up against the competition, or if a rival like the 2016 Honda Civic may offer more of what drivers want. Keep reading, and we’ll explore the feature options.

Which Car Is King of Amenities?

Both the Civic and the Focus share various standard features, including:

  • Steering wheel–mounted controls
  • Rearview camera
  • Adjustable tilt and telescopic steering column
  • Delayed power retention
  • Multi-function remote
  • Remote keyless access system
  • Vehicle theft deterrent system

The Civic, however, offers various features the Focus doesn’t have or only offers as an optional upgrade.

The Civic offers the comfort-inducing amenity of automatic climate control to keep the interior comfortable for passengers. This feature is not available in the base model Focus and is only offered standard in the most expensive Focus sedan trim.

Hill Start Assist is a prime feature that is offered standard in the Civic at the base level. In the Focus models, this feature is only offered at the most expensive trim level.

The Civic also offers variable assisted steering, which is a feature not available in any of the Focus sedan models.

Cruise control is a standard feature in the Civic, but the base model Focus does not have cruise control. Map lights, auto headlights, and an exterior temperature gauge are also offered in the base model Civic but not in the base model Ford Focus.

Remote trunk release is offered standard in the Civic base model but is not available at all in the Focus models.
