2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 Ford Focus
Balanced for all environments and perfect for drivers in the Casper, Glenrock, Douglas, Riverton, Lander, and Worland area, the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan offers a powerful, engaging driving experience. To demonstrate how effectively Honda has designed the Civic, we’ve compared it to the impressive 2016 Ford Focus. The best vehicle will win, but which will it be? See for yourself!
How do They Drive?
With an aluminum-alloy in-line four-cylinder engine, the 2016 Honda Civic delivers an available 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. This means power without aggression, with its uni-body construction and MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. The Civic is perfect for highway driving, but it tackles city streets just as effectively. And, with available manual and automatic transmissions, the Civic comes in a style for every kind of driver. When equipped with continuously variable transmission, the 2016 Civic offers 31 mpg city*/42 mpg highway*/35 mpg combined*, according to EPA estimates, which makes it one of the most efficient vehicles in its class.
By comparison, the 2016 Ford Focus with continuously variable transmission only puts out an EPA estimated 27 mpg city*/40 mpg highway*/31 mpg combined*. The standard Focus delivers only 160 hp and 146 lb-ft, and has a body design that bears a slightly different rear suspension when compared with the Civic. This makes for a slightly less athletic and nuanced handling. These little differences make a big impact!
What About Features?
Performance is important, but so are features. Here’s some of our favorites you can expect with the 2016 Honda Civic:
- Push button start
- Heated seats
- Bluetooth streaming audio
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Honda LaneWatch
- Lane-keeping assist system
- Honda Sensing system
While the 2016 Ford Focus also comes with push button start, heated seats, and the SYNC 3 audio system, it’s missing the important Honda Sensing system. When equipped with Honda Sensing, the 2016 Civic Sedan achieves the best possible 2016 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety; meanwhile, the Ford Focus isn’t even eligible for that high award.
Which Vehicle is Right for You?
The 2016 Ford Focus is a fine vehicle, but it can’t match the 2016 Honda Civic. The Civic outperforms the Focus in nearly every category, delivering a more engaging driving experience, as well as a more comfortable and safer one. In fact, the 2016 Civic offers an incredible array of passive and active safety features, which means that you and your passengers will know that you’re in safe hands. We think the choice is clear!
