2015 Ford Focus vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Is the 2015 Ford Focus Right for Mid-Missouri Drivers?

There are not many vehicles more well known as fuel-efficient compact cars than the 2015 Ford Focus, and when you need a new small car in the Mid-Missouri area, it should do the trick. The three different trims of the Focus provide a variety of amenities, and there are multiple engine options to choose from as well. The base-level Focus S, however, doesn’t look particularly exciting. Standard features are limited to power accessories, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and air conditioning, with Ford Sync serving as one of the only modern features. The fuel economy for the Focus isn’t bad, though 36 highway and 26 city mpg falls short of many competing vehicles. The 2015 Honda Civic is one of the longest-lasting competitors to the Ford Focus, and it continues to stay ahead of the Ford with an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg and 30 city mpg (when equipped with a CVT).* Efficiency is just one way that Honda’s small car outshines the Ford Focus, however, and when we look at the features, it’s clear why the Honda Civic earned a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award.* The Civic’s basic LX trim is much better equipped than the Focus S when it comes to features with Pandora internet radio, SMS texting, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a 5-inch customizable touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, and more. A Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer near you can set you up with a test drive of the new 2015 Honda Civic, but why don’t you see the differences between the two cars in our side-by-side comparison below first:
