The 2016 Focus confidently communicates European-inspired design. It has impressive craftsmanship and offers fun-to-drive performance. It also makes a big technology statement. Ford knows the competition is fierce though. Here’s how the 2016 Ford Focus stacks up against the 2016 Chevy Cruze.

For 2016, Chevy is offering two different Cruze models. The first one is based on the 2015 model. It’s a continuation of the outgoing car they call “Limited”. The other is simply called Cruze. It’s an “all new” model. The 2016 Chevy Cruze is noticeably changed. It’s more sculpted than the previous model. However, we know style is a matter of personal taste. The Focus has a distinctively European influence in its design. The Focus interior is highly styled with premium  materials. It’s been designed with careful attention to detail throughout.

The Focus has options that range from gasoline engine models that offer up to 42 mpg highway to a true electric model. There’s one that even offers a pulse pounding 350-horsepower. The Focus serves up body styles and powertrains that will meet the needs of a variety of drivers. The 2016 Focus offers a number of technologies that the Cruze simply does not offer. Standard features on the Focus include Active Grille Shutter System, MyKey and Torque Vectoring Control. It also offers available options like Active Park Assist and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control. We can’t forget the available SecuriCode keyless entry keypad.

Focus also offers powertrain choices that out-perform the Cruze Limited and the Cruze. The standard 2.0L Focus engine produces more horsepower than both Chevy models. It also delivers higher automatic transmission fuel economy than the Cruze Limited. The optional 1.0L EcoBoost engine on the Focus SE model delivers impressive power. The Focus also offers higher fuel economy ratings than the Cruze Limited. It also offers a higher manual fuel economy rating the the Cruze. Of course, Cruze has nothing to offer in terms of “performance” models. Nor does it offer any electric or hybrid options. That’s not very eco-friendly!

So, there’s really no comparison between the 2016 Ford Focus and the 2016 Chevy Cruze or Cruze Limited. The Focus just has more options in regard to body styles, engines and models. There’s truly a Focus model made for everyone! Give Beach Ford a call today so we can show you the awesomeness that is the 2016 Ford Focus! We’ve got a great selection available right now!
