2016 Chevy Cruze Limited vs 2016 Ford Focus
Even though there is a brand-new, next-generation Chevy Cruze coming to the 2016 model year, General Motors decided to send the previous model on one final ride by creating the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited. It’s the new model year’s version of the old Cruze, and will be sold right alongside the all-new Chevy Cruze. The Limited version is already available at Don Wheaton, so we decided to take a look at it in comparison to perhaps its biggest segment rival, by comparing the 2016 Chevy Cruze LImited vs 2016 Ford Focus to see exactly which model is the superior vehicle.
Advantages of the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited
One look at the table atop this page and you can see that the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited has quite a few advantages over its rival, starting at the top with cargo capacity. For sedans like the Cruze and Focus, the trunk is an extremely important part. These aren’t crossovers, so the trunk is really the only place dedicated to storage, so a bigger trunk is important even in a compact vehicle. The Cruze Limited has nearly 2-extra cubic feet of space in its trunk, giving it a sizable advantage over the Ford Focus.
But the Cruze Limited also has most space on the interior, with nearly 6-extra cu. ft. of passenger volume, allow passengers to stretch out and get much more comfortable than they would be able to inside the 2016 Ford Focus. As for fuel efficiency, the two vehicles seem to be identical, meaning the Focus can’t make up for what it lacks in capacities with economy. Add to that the fact that the Focus didn’t even have a towing capacity listed, most likely meaning that it cannot tow anything, and we think it’s pretty clear that the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited is the superior compact car.
