2017 Ford Focus vs. Chevrolet Cruze: Design Comparison
Both the compact 2017 Ford Focus and Chevy Cruze are available as either a hatchback or a sedan and can seat 5. The Focus offers two sport-inspired hatchback trims that the Cruze can't match in the ST and the RS and, regardless of configuration, the Focus offers greater front hip room, front leg room, front shoulder room, rear hip room and rear head room than the Cruze.
2017 Ford Focus vs. Chevrolet Cruze: Performance Facts
Both the 2017 Ford Focus and the Chevy Cruze feature similarly-powerful 4-cylinder engines paired with either a manual or automatic transmission in the sedan configuration. In the hatchback, the Focus offers an automatic at every trim level of the non-sport versions. Speaking of the sport-inspired Focus hatchbacks, All-wheel drive is standard equipment on the 2017 Focus RS hatchback, a feature the Cruze doesn't offer, and both the ST and RS offer a more powerful turbo engine than the Cruze. One more thing that the Focus offers and the Cruze does not is the option to reduce your carbon footprint by going all-electric.
2017 Ford Focus vs. Chevrolet Cruze: Safety Information
Both the 2017 Ford Focus and the Chevrolet Cruze feature antilock brakes, a rearview camera, multiple airbags and emergency telematics as standard features. While both vehicles offer the option of driver assistance technology, the Focus system is a bit more robust, especially when you consider that the full-featured Chevy version is only available at the top trim level. Another important safety difference is that in NHSTA crash testing, the Focus was awarded 5-out-of-5 stars while the Cruze was only able to manage a 4-star rating.
