2015 Ford Focus vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Before Driving Home a 2015 Ford Focus in West Michigan, We Have News…

The 2015 Ford Focus has a reputation as a fuel-efficient and easily affordable compact car among West Michigan drivers, but if you’re not willing to upgrade the Focus we think you may be disappointed in what you find. The basic Focus S comes with air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, power accessories, and Ford Sync. That last feature is the only somewhat modern amenity you’ll find on the Focus without upgrading, and while it’s known for its fuel economy, the Focus’s 36 highway and 26 city mpg comes up short among competing small cars.

The Focus has decent fuel economy specs, but the 2015 Honda Civic with CVT is rated at an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg.* Honda’s 2015 Civic also took home a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award* for its value. Those are two pretty big reasons to consider the Civic ahead of the Focus, and we think that once you get a look at the Civic’s standard features, you’ll see why we recommend it to drivers uncertain about the Focus. Each Civic LX comes with Pandora radio, SMS text message capabilities, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Honda’s i-MID infotainment system, a rearview camera with guidelines, and much more. The LX trim is the Civic’s basic model, and you don’t need to upgrade for any of those features.

See what these two small cars look like side-by-side in our comparison below, then take a look at what a Civic looks like from the best seat in the house: the driver’s. We’ll set you up for a test drive at a West Michigan Honda Dealer so you can experience it firsthand.
