Compare The Ford Focus vs The Competition

Focus vs Kia Forte

Compare The Ford Focus vs The Kia Forte

Compact cars fit a welcome role in the auto market. They are nimble and maneuverable for city driving, yet are still capable of getting you where you need to go. Compact cars are also some of the most affordable on the market, making them a great choice for a first vehicle. The Ford Focus has all of Ford's engineering power behind it, and combines power and comfort in a competitively priced package. While the Kia Forte is a solid competitor, it ultimately falls short of the Ford Focus in several ways. Here are just a few:

Power and Performance

  • Ford believes in offering plenty of power no matter what. The base engine in the 2017 Ford Focus provides 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The base engine in the Kia Optima only provides 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque.
  • The most powerful engine in the 2017 Kia Forte provides 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. This is only slightly more powerful than the base engine on the 2017 Ford Focus, and it increases the price much past the base.

Technology and Safety

  • Both the 2017 Ford Focus and the 2017 Kia Forte received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, the 2017 Ford Focus also received a five-star frontal crash rating; the 2017 Kia Forte received only four stars.
  • When it's too hot or too cold out, there's nothing like using your external car starter to start your car up and have it get to the perfect temperature before you even get in. The Ford Focus has an available car starter; the Kia Forte does not.

Special Options and Trim Levels

  • For the environmentally minded, the Ford Focus is available as an all-electric model. The Kia Forte is not.
  • Both the Ford Focus and the Kia Forte are available as a sedan or as a hatchback. The Kia Forte is available in three trim levels; the Ford Focus is available in four.

Focus vs Honda Civic

See How The Ford Focus Compares With The Honda Civic in Corydon, IN

When you're in the market for a compact car, it's natural to want the best. With over 100 years of auto experience, no one knows cars like Ford does. The Ford Focus is one of the finest compact cars around, bringing together capability, performance, and making the drive an enjoyable one. While the Honda Civic does provide some competition, it ultimately falls short of what Ford has to offer. Here are just a few of the reasons why the Ford Fusion reigns supreme:

Power and Performance

  • Under the hood of the 2017 Ford Focus is a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which gives 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The standard engine in the 2017 Honda Civic can only provide 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. Ford gives you more power straight out of the gate.
  • Tall drivers will appreciate the Ford Focus. With its greater front hip and legroom, driving can finally be comfortable.

Technology and Safety

  • The available parking sensors on the Ford Focus make parking easier than ever. The Honda Civic has no available parking sensors.
  • The infotainment system in the Honda Civic is infamous for lacking a physical volume knob, requiring the use of the touchscreen instead. Fortunately, Ford knows, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." The volume knob in the Ford Focus is as easy to use as ever.

Available Special Options and Trim Levels

  • The base trim of 2017 Ford Focus has an MSRP of $16,775. The base trim of the 2017 Honda Civic is almost $2,000 more, with an MSRP of $18,740.
