Is shopping for a new sedan becoming a headache? At Toyota of Alvin we know it doesn’t have to be. That’s why today we’ll be comparing the new 2018 Toyota Corolla to the 2018 Ford Focus. These fun compact sedans are both great choices, but which is right for you? To start off, take a look at Corolla’s 1.8L 4 cylinder CVT engine. This engine is not only powerful, but also fuel efficient, netting an EPA estimated 28 MPG city and 36 MPG highway. Ford’s 1.0L Ecoboost engine can’t match these specs; it only gets up to 25 MPG city and 34 MPG highway.
|Toyota Corolla||Ford Focus|
|Engine (base)||1.8L 4-Cylinder (CVT)||1.0L EcoBoost|
|MPG||26 City / 36 HWY||25 City / 34 HWY|
|Cargo Volume (seatbacks reclined)||13 cubic feet||13.2 cubic feet|
These vehicles are both well suited to most everyday driving needs because of their flexible interior design that has room for passengers and cargo. With their seatbacks reclined, the 2018 Corolla and 2018 Focus feature 13 cubic feet and 13.2 cubic feet of cargo volume respectively. The Corolla also features a large touchscreen, premium materials, and Bluetooth connectivity. Ford’s interior, especially at the lower models, can’t match Toyota’s standard features. The Focus has a more simple utilitarian cabin.
Let’s review some of the safety specifications on the 2018 Corolla and the 2018 Focus. To start, Toyota Safety Sense P is built into every new Corolla. This advanced group of safety features includes a pre-collision monitor, lane departure alert, dynamic radar cruise control, and more. Toyota’s commitment to their customers’ safety is admirable. This value and attention to detail is what Toyota customers have come to love about the brand. In contrast, the Ford Focus only offers some of these features as available add-ons, and they are not included on the standard trim.
