Drivers in West Michigan clearly value efficiency, particularly when it comes to the compact class. When shopping in this segment, some might consider the 2016 Ford Focus and its mpg ratings, but they hardly stack up when compared to the 2016 Honda Civic. Take a moment to weigh the two options in terms of fuel economy and other performance capabilities, but you’ll soon realize that the Civic towers above the Focus on all fronts.
Raising the Bar
Just because you’re shopping in the compact class doesn’t mean that you have to compromise power and performance in order to guarantee efficiency. In fact, the 2016 Honda Civic proves that a dash of everything makes for a much more compelling ride.
Power: The 2016 Honda Civic gets the most power from a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with direct injection technology at 174 hp. Meanwhile, the 2016 Ford Focus manages 160 hp at most with its 2.0L inline-four powertrain.
Torque: The 2016 Honda Civic produces a staggering 162 lb-ft of torque on the high end of the spectrum. The 2016 Ford Focus, on the other hand, gets a maximum of 146 lb-ft of torque.
Fuel Efficiency: The EPA estimates that the 2016 Honda Civic achieves up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 42 mpg highway,* while the 2016 Ford Focus musters just 30 mpg city and reaches an equal 42 mpg highway.
Clearly, Honda has equipped the 2016 Civic with engines more capable of providing both efficiency and balanced performance, and West Michigan drivers are sure to notice the difference.
