2017 Ford Focus vs. 2017 Chevrolet Cruze

blue ford focus and a black chevrolet cruze

Last year, the Ford Focus was a Consumers Digest Best Buy, and the 2017 Ford Focus is even better! Bringing together the best of every possible world, the 2017 Ford Focus can be customized to fit almost every need or lifestyle. For great fuel economy, try the 1-liter EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop technology-which can get up to 40 miles-per-gallon on the highway-or try the Focus Electric for up to 118 MPG in the city. For unbeatable performance, how about the Focus ST or RS trim packages, which can generate up to a best-in-class 350 horsepower? For unsurpassed style, the Titanium package brings all the features and amenities of a luxury sedan to the table.

Wherever you want to drive and however you want to get there, the 2017 Ford Focus is ready to take you in comfort and style. Advantage: Ford Focus.

Ford Focus Power and Handling

Whatever your focus, there's a 2017 Ford Focus for you. If you're budget conscious, you can go for an economical 1-liter EcoBoost engine that incorporates Auto Start-Stop technology to help save gas when you're driving in the city while still putting out good horsepower and getting up to 40 miles-per-gallon on the highway. (Not to mention the Focus Electric, which, as its name implies, eschews the pump entirely to run all-electric.)

If you're more performance-minded, you can bump up to the higher-performance ST or RS trim packages, which top out at a massive 350 horsepower and give you plenty of performance and handling with what The Car Connection has called "great road manners." In the end, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze just can't match the Focus' performance or advanced safety features. Advantage: Ford Focus

Sleek Design and Smart Features

They say that beauty is more than just skin deep, but with the 2017 Ford Focus, it's the other way around. The performance, power, and versatility of the Focus aren't just under the hood-they're reflected in everything about it, inside and out. From an aerodynamic exterior design to a stylish interior cabin, your Ford Focus can be tailored to fit you every step of the way. For example, check out the ST, which features rocker molding and lower valances on the outside. Of course, every 2017 Ford Focus comes with a whole suite of available technology—from SYNC 3 to driver assist and safety tech that you won't find anywhere else. Advantage: Ford Focus

Engineered to Thrill: The 2017 Ford Focus RS
