The 2017 Ford Focus vs 2017 Honda Civic. What's Your Choice?

Serving Columbus, Westerville, and Gahanna, OH

Many of today’s drivers love the affordability of a compact car. Known for its sporty character, the 2017 Ford Focus remains one of the most exciting cars in the segment. Not only is the Focus remarkably fun to drive, but it also delivers strong fuel economy. You can now choose from a long list of exciting technologies. A five-star safety rating makes the Focus even more appealing.

The Honda Civic has long remained one of the best-selling compact cars in the country. Drivers will appreciate its improved performance and comfortable ride. Let’s see how the 2017 Ford Focus stacks up against the new Honda Civic.

2017 Ford Focus Exterior


Like the new Ford Focus, the Honda Civic offers a number of modern technologies. Dozens of car reviewers have applauded Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system for its user-friendly design. You will love the system’s simple menu layout and responsive touch screen. Unfortunately, the Civic’s infotainment system suffers from a few issues. According to Edmunds and U.S. News & World Report, the Civic’s volume controls are especially frustrating to use. Drivers have also complained about the reliability of the Civic’s infotainment system. Yet another one of the Civic’s drawbacks is its lack of a true blind-spot monitoring system. Furthermore, only the Ford Focus can be equipped with a self-parking system.


The Ford Focus has become one of the hottest-looking compact cars on the market. While the sedan version will appeal to some drivers, there are others who will find the hatchback model to be irresistible. A signature grille helps distinguish the Focus from any other car in its class. Featuring blacked-out exterior trim and a special set of 16-inch alloy wheels, the SE EcoBoost package transforms the Focus into an even sportier ride. Meanwhile, a rear spoiler enhances the Titanium trim’s sleek profile. Some of the lively paint colors include Magnetic, Race Red, and Blue Candy. Most people agree that the new Honda Civic looks more exciting than the previous generation. However, some people will not like its polarizing front grille.

2017 Ford Focus Interior


You can take full advantage of Ford’s versatile engine lineup. While the base four-cylinder engine is smooth and efficient, an optional 1.0L EcoBoost engine rewards you with additional fuel savings. The Civic also delivers a strong performance, especially when equipped with the optional turbocharged engine. Unfortunately, the Civic doesn’t have an answer to the Ford Focus ST. This electrifying model pumps out a staggering 252 horsepower. Along with the extra muscle comes a sports-tuned suspension and performance tires. If you desire the performance of a world-class sports car, check out the 350-horsepower Focus RS. It clocked a dizzying 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds.

Based on its history of popularity, the Honda Civic will remain a top-selling vehicle. Nevertheless, it comes up short against the 2017 Ford Focus. In terms of overall performance capabilities and available technology, the Focus clearly outshines the competition.
