2015 Ford Focus

Sensibility abounds in the 2015 Toyota Corolla, a compelling small sedan geared toward everyday use. Boasting impressive fuel economy, easy-to-use controls and features, and plenty of passenger space, the Corolla puts its emphasis on practical, well-rounded value, making it a great choice for buyers in West Palm Peach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter. See how it compares to another vehicle in the segment, the 2015 Ford Focus, before heading to Earl Stewart Toyota to get behind the wheel.

Fuel Economy

When the 2015 Toyota Corolla’s 1.8L four-cylinder engine is paired to a six-speed manual transmission, it reaches up to an estimated 37 mpg on the highway. Opt for the LE Eco trim, and you can expect up to 42 mpg. This fuel economy exceeds that of the 2015 Ford Focus’s 2.0L four-cylinder, which hits a lesser 36 mpg on the highway when matched to a manual transmission. The Focus SE EcoBoost trim runs on a 1.0L three-cylinder powertrain, but it still tracks less mileage than the Corolla at 40 mpg highway.

Safety

Though both the 2015 Toyota Corolla and the 2015 Ford Focus earned a top overall five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Corolla came out on top in one crucial test: frontal impacts. It earned a perfect five stars, whereas the Focus was granted just four stars.

Passenger Legroom

A small sedan doesn’t necessarily mean a cramped cabin, and the 2015 Toyota Corolla proves that to be true. Despite its small stature, the Corolla provides more legroom than most in the segment at 41.4 inches. What’s more, all passengers in the backseat enjoy more comfort due to the Corolla’s generally flat rear floor. The 2015 Ford Focus, however, has been criticized by automotive experts for its limited legroom. In fact, it measures in at only 33.2 inches, leaving backseat passengers with less-than-adequate space to ride comfortably.
