2015 Toyota Corolla vs 2015 Ford Focus
While the 2015 Honda Civic may lay claim to being the best-selling passenger car in the nation, the 2015 Toyota Corolla isn’t far behind it. These two vehicles have been topping the charts together since they were first introduced years ago, and are today two of the longest-lasting vehicles on the market. But we decided we wanted to see how well some other compact sedan can measure up to one of our favorite compacts, so we compared the 2015 Toyota Corolla vs 2015 Ford Focus. The Ford Focus is a much younger car, having been introduced to the market 32 years after the Corolla, but it has steadily become a force to be reckoned with in the class as well, so we wanted to see how the two compact sedans stacked up to one another.
Advantages of the 2015 Toyota Corolla
While we like to look at our vehicles as if they are the pinnacle of the automotive world, there are certainly vehicles out there that make comparable choices, and for the 2015 Toyota Corolla one of those might be the Ford Focus. While the Corolla has a healthy leg up on its rival in city fuel efficiency, the Focus fires back on our compact by offering an extra 28 horsepower. But that advantage is diminished slightly by the fact that the Corolla doesn’t quite way as much as the Focus, so the vehicles are nearly equivalent in terms of performance as well.
Where the Toyota Corolla really takes the advantage is in terms of passenger volume. In a compact car, it’s nice to have plenty of space to stretch out in and get comfortable for everyone in the front seat and back. With an extra 7.4 cubic feet of space in the cabin, the Corolla is much better equipped to offer an enjoyable driving experience to whoever may be tagging along with you. If you’re interested in a Corolla of your own, be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website or by calling the Toyota on the Trail sales team. We can’t wait to get you behind the wheel!
