2016 Ford Focus vs 2016 Honda Civic

2016 Ford Focus vs. 2016 Honda Civic: Which Compact Car Best Fits Bradley Drivers?

The 2016 Ford Focus and the 2016 Honda Civic are in heated competition for drivers looking for a quality affordable vehicle, but time and again Bradley drivers have chosen the Focus, now available at Terry’s Ford of Peotone. It’s easy to see why: with its selection of precision-tuned powertrains, expansive feature set, and eye-catching good looks, the Focus proves itself pound for pound the superior vehicle. Take a look at everything the Focus offers over the Civic, and we’re sure you’ll agree. Then, head to Terry’s Ford and snag one for yourself.


While the 2016 Honda Civic only offers a single engine option, the 2016 Ford Focus offers several, each geared to be the best at what it does and to suit a range of driving needs. In the market for a fuel-efficient commuter vehicle?

The available 1.0L EcoBoost I-3 with auto start stop technology is perfect for you, sporting an EPA-estimated rating of 42 MPG highway that blows the Civic’s 40 MPG rating out of the water. This results in even more savings, above the already lower MSRP of the Focus. But your options aren’t limited to strict efficiency—those looking for a more athletic feel in their compact car will love the Focus ST trim. Under the hood, it sports a turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost engine that delivers 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, dwarfing the 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque offered by the Civic’s comparable selection.

But the ST’s performance doesn’t stop with the engine: it also features unique ST sport suspension and Torque Vectoring Control to make your ride buttery smooth, and Electric Power-Assisted steering with torque-steer compensation so that you’re in complete control of every turn.


The 2016 Ford Focus offers plenty of choice on the amenities front as well, with a range of features that the Civic doesn’t even offer, including:

  • Sync 3: This new and improved iteration of Ford’s proprietary infotainment system is more responsive and convenient than ever, connecting everything from navigation to audio to smartphone access into its easy-to-use console touchscreen, so you can control your technology at the push of a button.
  • Active Parking Assist: Take the pain out of parking with this innovative new technology, which not only keeps an eye out for suitable parking spaces with sensors and alerts you when it finds one, but also helps you back into it by taking control of the steering and guiding you right where you need to go—all you have to do is operate the gas and the brake.
  • MyKey: Parents can now monitor their children’s driving and promote good habits even when they aren’t in the vehicle thanks to this clever system, which allows you to program a driver profile into the car that limits top speed, audio volume, and more, all while monitoring the driver’s performance.


The 2016 Ford Focus is a better vehicle than the 2016 Honda Civic under the hood and inside the cabin, but beyond that the Focus is also a far more stylish and sophisticated looking vehicle as well. Its exterior cuts a bold and commanding presence, with aerodynamic curves and sharp contouring lines that exude speed and motion even when the car is stopped.

It’s also remarkably customizable, with 12 distinct wheel designs to choose from and 14 possible colors. The interior has a lot to offer as well, boasting expert craftsmanship and sophistication as well as different interior styles to fit different trims. The Focus Electric sports an eco-conscious interior upholstered with fabric made from recycled material and a soy-based foam in the cushions, while the sporty ST comes with aluminum pedals and full-leather RECARO front seats. And with the available ambient lighting, you can bathe the cabin in a soft glow that really emphasizes the beauty and elegance of its design.
