2015 Toyota Corolla vs 2015 Ford Focus
Of all the different types of vehicles that are available on the market, small sedans are probably the most common vehicles. This makes it all the harder to choose a car to purchase as there are so many different options for small sedans. Two of the best options are the Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus. They have an affordable price, excellent fuel economy, fantastic reliability and many great standard features. In order to help you choose the better of these two options for small sedans, we have done the legwork for you and created this 2015 Toyota Corolla vs 2015 Ford Focus comparison.
Starting with price, the Corolla is slightly cheaper than the Fusion, with a MSRP of $16,950. The lower price does not translate to lower quality, for the Corolla rates higher than the Focus in many areas. Most notable is the fuel economy. The Focus is 7.1% less fuel efficient that the Corolla in the city, and on the highway, it's 2.7% less efficient. That may not seem like a lot, but over time the better fuel-efficiency of the Corolla will save you much more money at the pump.
Additional Advantages of the 2015 Toyota Corolla
Both driver and passengers can take advantage of the spacious interior of the 2015 Corolla with its 97.5 cu.-ft. of passenger volume. Conversely, the Focus has a comparatively smaller volume at 90.7 cu.-ft. The difference in space for the passengers is even more pronounced in the rear seat with over eight inches more legroom in the Corolla. Another great feature of the Corolla is its standard 6.1-inch touchscreen for controlling audio. While the Focus does offer a touchscreen, it is not a standard feature. Also, the Corolla offers better safety features, including a greater number of airbags and an impressive integrated camera for backing up.
Both the Corolla and Focus are excellent choices in the compact car class. However, if you want a more affordable car with better fuel-efficiency, more interior space and better safety and tech features, then the Corolla is clearly the better choice.
