The Ford Focus Holds Its Own Against Models from Honda, Hyundai and Volkswagen at Arundel Ford near Kennebunk

When it comes to finding a suitable car for your daily drive around Biddeford, you'll discover a saturated market where turning the corner will cause you to bump into another model. With all the available options you can find, Ford has introduced one that stands out in the crowd: the Ford Focus. Sedans are known for their capability and functionality while providing luxuries, conveniences and efficient driving experiences.

Top competitors to the Ford Focus include the efficient Honda Civic, reliable Hyundai Elantra and the iconic Volkswagen Jetta. Every model provides an enjoyable drive and offers features and amenities that will enhance your commute to Sanford, ME.

We're happy to walk you through our new inventory and compare the four cars, so you can decide which one is the right one for you! Check out a comparison of the four below.


Ford Focus versus Honda Civic

  • The Ford SUV puts out more horsepower and pounds per feet of torque than its Honda competitor
  • The Ford Focus has a lower overall cost than the Honda Civic

The Honda Civic excels in safety features and luxuries that you would have to pay more for when you get behind the wheel of the Ford Focus. With the Civic, you get the Honda Sensing® package is included on every model in the lineup but the Ford won't offer those features until much later in the Focus lineup. But, for drivers looking for a more powerful car will love what they find with the Ford Focus. It comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that outputs 160 horsepower and 146 pounds per feet of torque, beating out the Civics' 158 and 138, respectively.

Ford Focus versus Hyundai Elantra

  • Hyundai Elantra has a lower output of horsepower and torque
  • Both options start with manual transmissions at their base levels

The Hyundai model offers an infotainment system that edges out what you'll find within the Focus. It comes with a five-inch touchscreen when compared to the Ford's SYNC® 4.2-inch display. It holds the edge with technology, but the Ford Focus excels when it comes to available powertrain options that far outshine those you'll find in the Elantra lineup. Options like the 2.0-liter EcoBoost or the 2.3-liter EcoBoost can achieve horsepower of 350 and 350 pounds per feet of torque. The Hyundai Elantra doesn't quite reach the power that the Focus manages to output.


Ford Focus versus Volkswagen Jetta

  • The Ford Focus provides more horsepower while the Volkswagen Jetta manages to put out more pounds per feet of torque
  • The Volkswagen Jetta costs more overall at the base model

The Ford Focus excels in its ability to flawlessly swap between the hatchback and sedan models. The Jetta lacks a hatchback configuration and therefore can't achieve the storage capacity of the Ford car. The Focus also comes with more engine options than what the Jetta can provide. The Volkswagen car comes with the most powerful engine package initially but starts to lag behind the Ford Focus with later models.
