Which to Choose: The Honda Civic EX-L or Ford Focus Titanium?

March 17th, 2014 by

2014 Honda Civic Interior 3When you’re stuck with two small car choices, it’s arguably a lot worse than a rock and a hard place, as you find yourself stuck with that decision for a while. The last thing you want is regret, right?

So if you’re asking yourself if you should drive home a 2014 Honda Civic EX-L or 2014 Ford Focus Titanium, you aren’t the only one. And we’ve got a quick overview of the features to help you decide.

Find Value in a Honda

One of the best advantages of the Civic has always been its efficiency, and you can see that on display here as well. The Civic EX-L with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg and 30 city mpg,* while the Focus only manages 37 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.

From there, we want to move on to look at value in features. Honda already gives drivers great standard features, but even these high-end models come with many great amenities, including:

  • Power moonroof
  • Bluetooth phone and audio
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system
  • Built-in rearview camera
  • Satellite-linked Navigation

That last one is a point we are particularly happy about. Many automakers, Ford included, still expect drivers to pay extra to add on an interactive navigation system at even the highest trim level, and the Focus Titanium is no different. But the Civic EX-L comes with a great navigation interface without the need to add it on.

The high-level trims aren’t the only places that Honda vehicles come out on top. Take a look at how the basic 2014 Focus and 2014 Civic compare.
