Beat our Civic
By alwaysyodeling on
2009 Ford Focus S 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
We have been long time drivers of the Honda Civic which is a nice small car. Our FORD Focus has been a delight and we think a big improvement over the Civic. Nice tight fit,good pep,easy handling, fun, mileage 36-37 on highway driving usually at 75mph. Feels roomier inside and when I had to put four adults and baby seat in there was no problem. We had a Ford Escort 1995 that is still going for friends at 200,000 miles. The Focus feels like that kind of solid but more jazz... Oh yeah nice SYNC.
Turning radius beats Civic. Ride is nice but don't forget you are in a small car so you will feel the road.
